Make It Colourful, Crafty... Crazy:-) (1/3?)

Good evening all! A little break from my hectic routine:-)... My car is in the garage and the good news is it is being repaired (they are changing the door too) and the insurance company will pay for most of the damage, except for £200, so I guess it is good news... Thank you all for your support:-)! 
Tonight I would like to show you what I did while on holiday... remember, I told you I had my beloved Copics and images with me? So, this is the first of 3 posts I think, that is if nothing unexpected happens! I wanted to take part in the Special Make It Colourful Challenge to celebrate Make It Crafty's store turning one, Make It Crafty being Zoe's store. My project is for 2 categories:

Category 1 - Merge as many Make It Crafty images into one scene (I used 8 different images and some several times which makes 10 images, see all the details below)
Category 2 - Creative combination of Make It Crafty images (I hope it fits, if not please ignore)

I loved playing with my digis to create that scene. Be prepared, there are quite a few pictures of my coloured sort of painting:-) (the picture is much better if you click on it),

It is 9.5 x 5.75 inches IRL (about 24x15cm), and it took me over 15 hours to colour it all. I think I am either crazy, or in love, or both:-)!

Close up of the three parts separately...

3 images in fact but only 2 different: Hula Girl, The Beach used once for the palm tree background, then I "cropped" the image a second time to have a shell and place it in the corner

And at the bottom, I used Fifi twice...

 Fifi is so cute that I also coloured another one for a card, which I would like to enter into this week's Make It Colourful challenge #26 - Colouring hair (NOT normal colours), that is if I can make it before the deadline!!!! Here is my Fifi...

and my card...

And no recipes because it would be so long and you must be fed up:-) But if you have any questions, just ask! I think  that's all for now, I'm off to continue my visits and I hope to be back soon with my other projects, regular cards, actually... not another painting! Thank you very much for your visit and speak to you soon!

  24. Oh Delphine, all simply gorgeous honey!! Beautiful colouring as always!

  25. ................................................................................................................................................................................................................................... !!!!! In-cro-yable !!! Je ne trouve pas les mots. Quelle scène ABSOLUMENT MAGNIFIQUE tu as réalisée. J'adore. Pour commencer, la composition avec les différents digis, puis aussi l'agencement des trois "panneaux" et le titre au milieu en bas et les deux Fifi (trop mimi la petite). Delphine: tu vas gagner, c'est juste pas possible autrement !!!! Je comprends que cela ait demandé un certain temps. Je vois déjà combien de temps cela me prend pour 1 seul personnage... j'imagine bien tes 15 heures pour cette scène. Pour ma part, j'aurais très peur de faire ça, car j'aurais peur de râter une partie (tu sais comme avec les cheveux de Florence) car là, pas possible de découper. ;-))) Alors vraiment bravo ! J'ai une question: que vas-tu faire de cette merveille? Elle est destinée à quelqu'un? Ou ta belle-fille te l'a déjà piquée pour décorer sa chambre?!?!?!!? Hihiii Je suis contente d'apprendre que tout s'arrange suite aux dommages liés à la voiture et d'entendre que l'assurance va payer. Je te souhaite un bon dimanche et te dis à très vite. J'ai vu que tu as encore publié une merveille tout à l'heure. ;-) Francine

  26. OMG Delphine this is absolutely, out of this world, beautiful. Wow your colouring is excellent so is the way you have designed this wonderful creation, top notch work.
