Little Red Beret

Hello, I’m back again!  

October is my birthday month and to treat myself I thought it would be fun to jump in with The Daily Marker’s - 30 Day Coloring Challenge whenever I can.  It’s all about spending 10 minutes a day (minimum) of colouring just for fun!  You can make your designs into cards, or just colour for the sake of colouring.  So, that’s what I’m going to try to do.  Sometimes you’ll see cards, sometimes I think it will just be showing off images that will hopefully later make it into cards.  

Today I put a card together with a little bear I coloured up last night.   It’s an adorable old image from Birdie Brown.  I love this little guy in his red beret and the fun stripedy shirt.  It has almost a French feel to it, so I kept some of those basic themes in the design.  The sentiment is from a PTI set I had that would fit in the little circle I wanted to use.    

My sister-in-law asked for a few kids Birthday designs, and I this would be a cute one.  

The shimmer I added to the balloon highlights doesn’t look really great in this picture, much better in real life :)  It’s supposed to be a subtle effect but photographed so differently.  

Here’s the Copics I used.   See you soon with some more colouring!
