Drew & Angelica

It's the start of another challenge at Make it Colourful and this time the theme is "Coloring Texture!" The basic idea is to stay away from all the smooth blending and rough if up. My main textures can be found in the brick and a little in the sidewalk and wall. However, others on the team say there is a lot more than that. ;D

For my project I used Drew and Angelica from Simply Betty Stamps and created a scene for them to go trick-or-treating in using Urban Objects and Urban Street elements from Make it Crafty. The chippies I used were Fine Swirls and a medallion from Filigree Jewels with sticker added in the center which was stolen from my daughter's project today! LOL

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:

Flutter By Wednesday Challenge #177 - Halloween colors
Simply Betty Stamps 2nd Day of Halloween - Two Trick-or-Treaters
Lollipop Crafts Challenge #54 - Embellishments

Here's a closeup of the colored image that I scanned in before doing anything with it. I can never get the colors to match up in my photos so the scans are sometimes a great alternative. I had colored the image as normal then went back in with some Warm grays to add more depth - I really liked how it turned out when compared to an earlier version. Lastly the white was added on Drew with acrylic paint and a brush to help her costume get a shiny look.

Update: I'm the 2012 DT winner of the 12 Days of Halloween at Simply Betty Stamps!
