Do You have any January Blues? - colouring denim could be the answer

Good morning all

If you have January Blues I have just the place for you!

We have a new challenge at 

and the theme is 


Here's my DT card for your inspiration
using the image Casual Boy available HERE

I love colouring this type of boy image - when I first learned how to colour with pens and pencils it was denim blue that I first mastered, it still amazes me today how a grey pencil can transform some reasonable blue colouring into something that looks like denim jeans!

As always we have a fab prize on offer this week at TPS

This is what I did

Image - Casualboy from TPS
Coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and pencils
Papers - Father knows best from LOTV
Kraft card - Crafters companion
Pierced dies - Pierced noble squares and rectangles from Sue Wilson at Creative Expressions
Corner dies - MFT
Happy birthday die - Tatterred lace

Of course it doesn't have to be a boy card that you create - it could be a pretty blue floral, or anything else - as long as it is a predominantly blue card.  i look forward to seeing what you create

Challenges i'm entering with this card

The Male room - anything goes 19/1
cardz 4 guyz- happy birthday 18/1
digi chooseday - cool blues 26/1
