Coloring Black Hair and New Challenge Blog

New challenge blog alert! My online friend Carla is launching a new and very useful challenge blog called SHOPPING OUR STASH (SOS) for all of us who are getting overwhelmed by our stash and for those living in denial too!! She is looking for DT members and offering a blog candy.
More information here!

I made this card for Make it Colorful challenge, where the theme is to color black hair. Well I have to admit that black hair is one of my least favorite things to color, but I gave it a try.
I used Sweet Pea stamp called Midnight Waiting and colored the image with Prismacolor pencils. For the hair, I went over the whole hair with light gray and then just added black and more black to create shadows.
I used Gloria's fabulous sketch from Christian Paper Craft blog - I don't have a large scallop die/punch, so I cut out several small circles from pink CS, cut them in half and adhered them on the light blue panel. I'm also entering it into In a Sweet Pea Dream Challenge where Anything goes.
