Hot Colors for The East Wind

Our new Facebook challenge begins today in The East Wind Group with the theme of Hot Colors.  Conveniently, a hot pink gift bag just happened to be laying on my craft room floor, so I decided to decorate it accordingly.  I've been wanting to color the adorable Hanna 'Wildflower' for some time and thought she'd be lovely in and array of colors from the warm side of the color wheel.  I've layered the image with mats cut from the Graphic 45 6x6 Voyage Beneath the Sea and found the perfect floral in an ancient MAMBI 8x8 stack (a truly lucky find, since I'd colored her first).  The cascade of gorgeous crinkle ribbon came from DL.Art Supplies with two colors from the Vintage Vineyard bundle, one from the Rainbow bundle, and one from Tropical Summer.  YUMBO!

Here's a closeup of the adorable Hanna 'Wildflower'.  She's colored with Copics with a few highlights done with a white gel pen.  I attempted a bit of interest in the background with drops of Copic blender.  (Very subtle, as I decided to do this after the entire image was already colored.) I still quite pleased with how it all turned out.  I hope you'll come join us on the TEW FB Group page and also check out the new Blog challenge.

Also, Unky, the artist behind the fabulous East Wind digis, is off on a meditation retreat until the end of the month, and is offering the gorgeous Aurora 'What Matters' for only $1.00 until she returns.  Don't miss it!  This is Unky's gorgeous coloring, don't you love it?
