CES Challenges DT Card - Colouring On Kraft

Hello my lovelies how are you all? I'm super duper late as I've had a stotting migraine since yesterday afternoon & I had Payton-Lea last night as well lol.........luckily I have the most fabulous hubster who likes to help when he can. Anyway I will get on with my post.
Of course its Saturday wooooo hooooooo it also means a new challenge over on CES Challenges & this week our fabbylicious Donna has chosen a fab theme of............
Colouring On Kraft....
I love colouring on Kraft & dont do it often as I would like so even tho I am late I loved this theme.
I have used another fabulous image from D'Arcy's Diaries........love these images, love how different they are.

Papers are the gorgeous Prima 'Printery' which I got from Crafty Emma's last year.
The small postcard is from a LOTV Grunge Postcard stamp, which I always forget I have.

I've also used a 6x6 Pointed Petal card blank & paper flowers & blooms also from Crafty Emma's Store.
Pearl, lace & twill ribbon are from my stash.

The image is Number-002 & I printed her onto smooth Kraft card & coloured her in with Prisma Pencils.
Originally I was going for a charcoal type of look but then decided instead to add more white so not sure what sort of look you would call this.........I was playing lol.
I used 3 pencils for this image, black, warm grey & white & it was quite quick to do. Altho I do need more practice lol.

Well thats it from me please pop on over to see my fabulous teamies Krafty Kreations........utterly stunning!!

Will be round shortly to catch up with you all.
Hope all you mums in the UK get a super duper Mammy's Day tomorrow & hope you get spoilt rotten but most importantly hope you get sooooooo many hugs & cuddles from your kiddies......worth more than ANY present they are!!
Tatty bye & thank you from my heart for stopping by, loves ya xoxox
Challenges I'm Entering............
