Hooked

I finally made a project with the Swings ‘n Slides Hooked image I colored for the 7 Colors challenge that Faye put out on LMMS FB group!  (Wow, that was a mouth full!  LOL)  So about two months ago Faye challenged me to color an image using only 7 colors.  Then about a month ago is when I started to get serious about it.   Yeah, I know, a month?!  Lucky for me, the gals on FB decided that the blender pen was more of an eraser than a color and was allowed.  So, 7 colors, but 8 markers.  Here’s the end result:

The image is Swings ‘n Slides Hooked from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and drawn by Pollycraft.  The colors I used are G46, W7, R17, E00, E59, YR31 and E23 plus the “eraser” too.  I chose this image because it gave me five large “blocks” that would show off the colors nicely.  And I wanted to use a lot of colors to be impressive too!  So picking out the colors was tedious because each color had to be used in multiple places.  For example, the green area has gray, green and yellow; and the red area has brown, red and yellow.  And oddly enough, the orange was the hardest color to squeeze out!

The dragonflies are chipboard accessories from Make it Crafty and Zoe also sent me the sandal charm.  Thanks Zoe!  And thanks Faye for the challenge too!  😀

I’d like to enter this into the following challenges:
