It's All About the Hair Color

Hi everyone!  Welcome to our new Top Tip Tuesday Challenge, It's All About the Hair Color. 

First off, I want you to know about our DT call.  You can find the full details on the blog, here.  I have to tell you this is such a fun, talented, supportive group to work with. Whether you are a seasoned crafter or a newbie, if you are interested, be sure to contact Samantha very soon!  We would love to have you join us in the fun.

On to the challenge...this week our fab sponsor is:

Check out all Unky's wonderful designs!  I chose to use Flower Fairy because of her great hair!

You may have noticed most of my girls have reddish hair and true to form, I kept it in the color family with a more orangish tint.  Who knows maybe this will be my next color:)

I decided to try my luck doing a watercolor bokeh background.  I was inspired by this post on Pintrest.  I used Distress Ink and Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment ink for the background.  

My tip as usual, comes from the need to fix a mistake.  I was a little impatient and smeared some of my dots, the sequins were the perfect camouflage.   I wanted to keep the card simple to put the emphasis on the hair and the sequins sort of lead your eyes right to the image.  

I mentioned above what talent the DT has...wait till you see their hair!  If you didn't start there, head over to the blog to take a peek and learn all the details about the challenge.  While you are there don't forget about the DT call.  I can't wait to see your creations!
