TWO Challenges in One

My card this today incorporates 2 Challenges. The first one is the SquiggleFly colour challenge and the 2nd is  'All about green'  over on  Sassy Cheryl's Blog Challenge.  This is Cheryl's very first blog Challenge. I would like to wish her all the best.

Now for the colours for the Squigglefly challenge

The image I have chosen is called Ragtime Reader by Artist Cheryl Alger AKA Sassy Cheryl. Her images are just fabulous to colour.

Firstly I printed out the image in the size I wanted. I chose my designer patterned paper (from Stampin Up) and grabbed the card stock that matched. Next I coloured the image with my Prismacolor Pencils in the co-ordinating colours.
The image and the coloured layers were cut out using Nestabilities classic circles.
All layers were then adhered together along with the green lace. (The lace was inspired by my friend Lovely Linda who uses lace alot, I mentioned to her I never did, so Linda here it is. Thanks for the inspiration). Last but not least the finishing embellishments were added. I opted to use the paper flowers in the same kiwi colour and 'Split Pea' coloured rhinestones from Kaisercraft.

Until next Time
Inking of you All
