Kaboodle Challenge No. 6

This is my entry for this week's sketch challenge over at Kaboodle Blog, using their wonderful Morris Dance papers, which I absolutely love.  I've used a Gorjuss girl image from one of the images my friend Sarah-Jane sent me, and I've coloured her with SU! Markers in Not Quite Navy & Old Olive to match the papers, and also Cameo Coral, Pumpkin Pie and Ruby Red.  I've watercoloured most of the image, apart from her coat, which is why the blue on the hat is lighter even though it's the same pen, it's quite a nice way to get shades of the same colour.  I've also used Not Quite Navy Cardstock and ink on the sentiment, which is from the SU! set "Fun & Fast Notes" to tie it all in together and managed to find some blue gem flowers that matched up with the lighter blue backing paper.

I'm also quite pleased with my photo, I took this one on my iPhone, like I do all my photos because it makes it so easy to load onto the computer, but I added an app yesterday to edit photos and I've cropped and sharpened the image on this and I'm really pleased with the result. It also helps that it's bright and sunny here today, for a nice change!
