How do you...

 ...I love to sit and colour.

I can happily lose myself for hours with some stamped/printed images and a set of pens or pencils.

Whilst I'm not a fan of repeating the same image in the same colour-way (boring...) I will merrily spend my time colouring multiples of the same image - but in different colour combos.

This is another version of the RoseRed image by Krista Smith (Saturated Canary)...
 ...this time coloured as an ash-blonde with a lilac gown using Spectrum Noir pens.
Skin: TN1, TN2, FS1, FS7
Hair: TN1, EB1, EB2
Dress: HB1, HB2, HB3 and a touch of PP1 added to the HB1 on the skirt

I hope none of you have fallen off your chairs because I never usually remember what colour pens I've used LOL

I really love seeing how different colour combos work.

Here is my little blondie side-by-side with the ginger image I showed you the other day...
...the same image but looking so very different just because of using different colours.
Oh, and before you ask...
Skin: FS3, FS4, FS5, CR3
Hair: TN1, GB1, GB6, GB7
Dress: DG1, DG2, DG4 and a touch of EB2 added to the DG1 on the skirt you didn't think I'd be able to remember - now did you!

I used the blender pen on both images to help even out the shading on the dress area.

I find colouring so peaceful and relaxing (unlike the hassle I had up-loading these pics to the PC - for some reason the automatic loading of the memory card doesn't seem to be working grrrr) and would be perfectly content to while-away my time pursuing this pastime.

Is there a specific aspect of crafting that you find particularly relaxing?............................................

Oh they are gorgeous and look so utterly different with the different colour ways!

I'm amazed at how just using different colours can produce such different pictures, you obviously have an excellent eye!

Gorgeous colouring, the different combinations are so effective! I find it most relaxing to sit and cut out bits of paper!
