Colouring Fun!

Hello lovely people.  I have not been about much on blogger recently.  
The weather has been exceptionally good here in the UK!  
I can't remember a recent summer like this one and we have been off out and about.  
The garden is an explosion of colour and is also taking up a lot of my time.  
I have managed to do a little late night colouring!
My project is a mixed media creation made just for fun and for The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge.

The sweet image is from the Coloriage Wild pad and has a base coat of Copic marker, then FC Prismacolour pencils to add detail, tone and shape.
There is also some white and black gel pen definition.  I have been practising with charcoal pencils and would really like to sketch with these.  I added some hair detail with charcoal and made a lot of mess and smudgy fingerprints over the background.  
She was therefore fussy cut and put onto a watercolour background which had been coloured and stamped with Distress Inks.  
The background was embossed to add detail and interest and the image added on top.
I am really pleased with the finished results!

This is the image as a work in progress.  You can see how the extra detail and the background warms the colour tones. 
This image has been one of my all time favourites to colour!

 Happy crafting fun to all!
Hope you are all having a fabulous summer (where it is summer)!
