Anya Ink's 1st Challenge and MMSC21

Hi all, just a quick one, while Rosanna and hubby are busy making a ant colony (one of her birthday pressies).

This post is combining two challenges, MMSC21 which is to use the sketch below and Anya Ink's 1st Challenge, which is a colour challenge using Pink, Brown and Cream or White if needed, also to use a Greetings Farm Image. I wanted to make a card for my mum-in-law who is going to be 85 on Sunday, I also wanted to use a picture took recently, of her one of her great grandchild and two grandchildren. So to keep in with the Anya colour challenge I took a picture of the card before I attached the photo.

and this is the finished card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge with the photo on, can't believe how different the colours look.

I have used all Stampin Up card stock and DSP, (not comfortable using brown, so quite a challenge), the brads from my stash and the stamped Anya from a friend.

The Anya image is coloured in using my Brand New Touch Twin Markers, yes I spoilt myself, (couldn't wait till Xmas) after picking my lovely new friends Debbie P brains for advise, thankyou very much, just love them, just need to get some more colours for the skin tone, hair, purples etc, plus lots more practice colouring, to get anywhere near the standard of you pros out there, You Know Who You Are! Used my SU marker and blender pen for the skin tone and wings then added Kindy Klitz for the wings.

Thanks for looking, happy crafting, take careX:)
