Guest post for Christine Gray

Hi everyone..

I have once again been given the honour of being guest blogger over on Christine Gray's blog.
She makes the most amazing hand drawn digi's. Full of life and personality.

Please visit her blog here 

This time I got a girl sitting down to play with. I could have gone both ways with her. Cut her out and made her sit on something, but her hat made me think of the old pioneers, so I decided to go with my favorite style, old and distressed.

I decided to go for the "one-colour" technic. Its basicly using only one colour to colour in your image. I do indeed use a few shades of the same colours, in this case brown, and also the ivory and the blender. You simply start adding colour as shading instead of block colours as normal.

 I hope you like what I have done with her, I think the card came out lovely. 
Thank you for stopping by my blog, and for any comments left behind.
Huge Hugs, Marleen xxx
