A new challenge at Diva's by Design.

Good Morning blogger friends.

Hope you are all well and enjoying some sunshine as we are in the UK. Can't believe how warm it has been this week considering it is September.
We have a new challenge starting today at Diva's by Design. We are being sponsored by Dies to Die for so we would love to see your gorgeous dies. The DT's have some gorgeous inspiration for you and it would be lovely to see you join in.
I have used a Magnolia image - Tilda with Fantasy Flowers.
I have coloured her with Inktense pencils - I just love the vibrancy of these.
I have just finished colouring a second image following Tracy Paynes tutorial over on Kit and Clowder. (I will show you this at the end of my post). I purchased the Distress Marker Tutorial and Tracy has now included a video on colouring with pencils which is included in the price. The best money I have spent all year - sorry hubby has spent all year!!!
I will post a link to all the products used with a link to the shops at the end of this post.

The papers from Nitwit Collections go beautifully with the pink and green pencil colours.

The flowers are from LLC and WOC. The butterfly die is Joy Crafts and I have blinged the card using pearls and sparkly embellishments from The Hobby House.

I have been having a play with a collage effect. I love these for highlighting certain areas.
Sorry if my post are too picture heavy - can't help myself!!!
Here is my coloured image using Inktense Pencils. I will have to practice different colours on the hair as I was hoping for blonde hair and it is a bit too red.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
Incy Wincy Designs - All things girly
Crafting by Designs - Pretty in Pink
Marvellous Magnolia - Anything goes and DT call
Addicted to Stamps - Make your Mark
City Crafter - Butterflies
Ppinkydolls - Anything goes/add flower(s)

See you all very soon for a catch up.
Hugs Sharon. xxx
