a little extra for today


hi there and good evening to you all
i had this little image already to colour ............so thought i would add a spotty back ground useing some of the colours i used in the main image to tie it all together
we can all do dots and triangle shapes just vary the size of the dots and use the darks in just small areas.... there you have a simple back drop for you winter stamps makes the image really come to the front and is done in such a short time have a go!!!!!

here is a list of the colours i used ....Spectrum Noir pens
 brown  colors 107...100...104...101
green colours  43...GG5...GG1...178
skin 26...135...139..168...169
eyes185
Background 178...GG1...GG3...GG5...43...26.... 0
im going to make it into a card later
