Scatty Jan Wow I loved my image this week Sally Sadness you can find her in the store here. I think she really suited the Eerie colours theme. She is really cute . Enjoyed colouring her in something different for me.Also liking the darker colours I always seem to reach for lighter colours first.
Colours Used
Purples 034/039
Greys 299/197/198/097
Greens 070/074
Reds 090/091

Nikky...Oddball images are so my cup of tea! This is Sally Sadness - poor Sal! She's so miserable bless her little woolly tights, I love her! I coloured this with my Lyras and then last minute put her onto a canvas...she's a little splodgy and splattered because I oversprayed by making a wash with my PanPastels too but I actually really like her a bit distressed it just adds more to her character I think - see more over on my blog how I did this....

Unfortunately I was too dim to write down the colours I used because as usual I got enthralled in the colouring lol...sorry!

Cara ....This week I got to play with the image Clarissa and I adore her! As she had the stitching on her face I decided to give her green skin a bit like Frankenstein!  To give my image a darker look I coloured it all in Greys first and then went over with my other colours, I did the same with the sky too!...

Colours used:
Light, medium and dark grey and black for the whole image and then the following added over
Sky: 44, 48, 37
Skin: 68, 70
Pumpkin: 9, 15, 17
hair and socks: 37

Yvonne...Unfortunately Yvonne can't post with us today but she had coloured her Leopard Print Punk Fairy image up ready to make on a card so we've added it so you can see the lovely image and can get the image here Leopard Print Punk Fairy....

Susan Well the nights are drawing in, its cold and eerie outside, so here is my Eerie Card for The Eerie colour challenge. I just love this image of Clarissa from our sponsors Oddball Art.
