Cafe de Paris

 Happy Saturday peeps :)


Never work with Children or Feathers... both are complete monkey's about having their photo taken! And, while I'm on the subject of monkey's, don't write about monkey's, because, monkies, which is, I think, grammatically correct, get's pulled up as being the wrong spelling, and monkey's is just wrong in his context. Flamin' monkey's.

Alrighty then, it's Super Saturday time at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and this week, our Spotlighted image is La Jeune Fille a L'Eventail. Insert happy dance here, as I have been wanting to colour this girl, for, like, ever! Naturally, having a tricky image to colour, you will of course be familiar with my feelings about pleats, (they're right up there with mince pies... eurgh!) I thought I'd make things easy for myself by putting her in, THE, largest scene I have ever coloured. That said, I spent a few happy hours colouring this lot in, pleats and all. Ok,  maybe I grumbled a bit about the pleats!


I've posted this card up on the Make it Crafty Store Blog, all the colours I used are over there...

Supplies...

WOW! Stunning!!! Admiring!
LOTS of colors and you've done a terrific job coloring this scene.
I wouldn't even dare to give this a go. I'm no coloring expert, for instance I tend to paper piece larger images of skirts and dresses to avoid those tricky folds..

1a small to medium-sized primate that typically has a long tail, most kinds of which live in trees in tropical countries.
Loads of fabulous colourwork on your card by the way
