Open-Minded Crafting Fun #16 - Summer Food

Hi everyone the latest challenge over at Open-minded Crafting Fun has the theme of Summer Food.

I got to work with my first image by The East Wind, she is the wonderful 'Ghetto Fabulous Ashley' and I loved colouring her, but I was concentrating so much on trying to do my hair flicking I completely forgot about light source and screwed up her lovely ringlets, I couldn't bring myself to start again as stupidly I had left the hair til last.  

So it may not be my best 'hair' but I have stuck with the image as a reminder to myself to take my time and also to measure my improvement, once i finish the hair class over at Kit & Clowder Ning.

Anyway thats enough wallowing in my lack of colouring skills :)

I chose to have her leaning against a Giant Margarita, as I think she looks kinda Sassy and like she would love a good cocktail.

I have used Copics for the hair and skin and Pro-Markers for the clothes on this image.

The background and Margarita (just love how this turned out, I used acetate to look like the glass and a little glitter around the rim to look like sugar) are from the Silhouette store and the sentiment is from Gingers House.
