What to Wear - All Dressed Up New Release

Today is the blog release day for four brand new digi stamps from All Dressed Up and each is cuter than the last.  Seriously, I would have been happy with any one of them and was given What to Wear to showcase for the launch. 
I have to confess, this wasn't the easiest thing I've ever coloured.  I began with the wardrobe using Copic earth tones.  One of my markers began smearing and not blending so I printed another image and began again.  This time the colours got too dark and I wasn't happy with it so back to the printer I go.  For my third attempt, I used another set of browns but they didn't seem to be blending very well.  The grays are my fourth go at it and I do think it got very dark and I'm not totally happy about that but I wasn't going to go for the fifth!
I love this image.. so girlie and cute.  There's a lot more detail than I thought too but it's a great little scene.
Be sure to zip on over to the challenge blog and check out what the rest of the team did with the pretty images.
The theme at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog  is always Anything Goes with the only rule to enter being you use an All Dressed Up image.  If you don't have any, they can be can either be purchased at the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop or downloading one of several cute freebies offered on the blog.

I LOVE this! Your colouring looks as fantastic as ever even if it was fourth time round. I like the darkness of the screen as it makes it looks more like a sumptuous boudoir. I just had to go and buy this from the shop although mine will never look as good as yours. Debra x

I commiserate with you. Big objects like that are always tough to color but I think it looks wonderful and the image really is cute. Hugs!
