Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #22

Hi Everyone!!
Welcome to another Whimsy Inspiration Challenge!
This time we have a Colour Combo for you -  "Blue & Brown!"  It was only when hunting up my papers that I realised I don't use nearly enough Blue and Brown together! I love this combination, and it's so versatile, so I'll really have to pop it into production more often! ;)

Hope you decide to join us! You don't have to use a Whimsy image, but it would be great if you did! And it doesn't have to be a card - we welcome all paper projects. Don't forget to check out the challenge details - and your chance to be a Guest Designer with us - over at the Whimsy Inspirations Challenge Blog!

I also decided to give myself a challenge this week -  to colour an image that I had literally 'put in the too hard basket'! This image is called "Tasia" from Lia Stampz, and is found at the always fabulous Whimsy Stamps Store.I have SO much trouble colouring people and clothing, but decided the only way to learn is to just practice!

By the way, (in case you are reading this Pamela)... a lovely reader asked me if I "teach Copic colouring classes" - You are now my new Favourite Follower! In my dreams I'd like to actually GO to Copic classes - I can't imagine teaching them! ;) But thank you so much - your comments are so lovely and the encouragement is very appreciated!

So anyway, I did my best, and stopped freaking out that it wasn't perfect ;) I followed the Sketch Saturday for Week#190,  and used my DCWV Linen Closet papers.

Hope you like my card!

And another angle which shows the dimension...

So join us for this weeks Whimsy Inspiration Challenge #22 - "Blue & Brown"!
