OH, How I Love a Good Challenge!

The best challenges can be found at MakeitColourful.com...just sayin!  If you are looking to do more then "make a card" but rather push yourself beyond the normal then you must go check it out.  The challenge for this month is eye's and reflection...well I did Eyes...and the image is kinda a reflection of myself...full of color just waiting to get out.
 Okay so I tweaked the challenge a bit, but i think it still counts as i really challenged myself by adding the zipper to her face.  The challenge starts on the 1st of every month and the goodies you win are amazing!  Go take a peek at the last challenge and grab a MakeItCrafty image and start coloring or the upcoming challenge.  You can combine other images as long as you have something MIC.  And it doesnt even have to be a card...it can just be a colored image...how easy is that.  Their is a hard and easy challenge entry spot if you want to start easy and then push yourself towards the hard challenge.


The image is from MakeitCrafty from the portrait series.  I drew in the zipper and gave her cat eyes...I do love how she came out.
