Not Now... I'm Reading

Today is the start of our first challenge of 2016 in The East Winds's Facebook group. Our challenge theme is "Not now... I'm reading" and your project should have a reading or book related TEW image or book text  on it. I used an image I have been wanting to colour for quite some time, Lucy Loo 'Spellbound'.

I coloured most of the image with Copics. I did the background first in case I messed it up. ;-)
I used a variety of blue, purple markers, and C9, for the background and then dotted haphazardly around it with a cotton swab soaked in isopropyl alcohol. I used Prismacolor pencils for her shirt. I kept the backing mats dark so the colours of the image would pop.

Our Facebook contest runs from January 21 to February 17, so get to crafting and show us what you got!! The winner gets three images of their choice, and the runner up gets a 25% discount code for the Etsy shop. There are also twice monthly challenges on the blog HERE, so lots of opportunity to participate and win! Make sure you are signed up for the newsletter as well; there is a freebie image in there on the 1st of each month! Thanks for stopping by and having a peek! See you in Facebook-land!! xx
