TTPH Challenge #25

Good morning all we have a new challenge starting over at Through the Purple Haze Challenges today
and this week the theme is Pick your Favourite Colour

We are lucky to have two fantastic sponsors 

Prize: 4 Digi's 
Prize: $12 Coupon

so the lucky winner is in for a lovely treat.

The design team had a choice of four digis from Delicious Doodles to choose from 
And I picked quiet contemplation to work with 
And this is what I made with it

Because our theme this week was "Pick you favourite colours" I decided to colour the digi stamp using my favourite colours to colour with, Grey scale with a dash of Red, for this I used the following Promarkers

Skin tone Satin
Blender Pen
Cool Grey 5
Cool Grey 4
Cool Grey 3
Cool Grey 2
Cool Grey 1
Burgundy and 
Berry Red

You can't really tell from the Photo but the image is printed onto a textured pearlescent paper as I felt that this added to the oriental feel of the card, after colouring I used Cosmic Shimmer "Autumn" Twinkles glitter to highlight the flower in her hair and the Tassel on the umbrella 

I wanted the image to be the main focal point on the card so I kept the embellishments to a minimum using only a ribbon, bow and two heart pins from my stash.

The image is matted onto silver/grey paper and layered onto textured oriental paper from my stash.
 I rounded the corners with a corner punch.
Card is a 15cm square
