Hair She Goes….

Ok, so who remembers The Laa’s? Great song, unfortunately it will be stuck in my head for the rest of the week now! The reason for the slightly obscure title (other than my titles generally are rather obscure. No wait, my whole blog is rather obscure. I digress.) is I am trying to get the hang of colouring hair.
I have immersed myself in many a blog post and YouTube video over the last few months, and everyone seems to do hair so differently! I have tried to do the thing where you leave a strip of white showing, but I really can’t get to grips with that, it just looks odd when I try it. This lovely lady was supposed to be a red head. Not quite happening, is it?

The image is one of the recent release by A Day for Daisies, called Poppies in My Hair. She's coloured with Promarkers and then die cut using a Nellie Snellen die I bought ages ago and seldom used. Not sure about the bling-thing going on in the corner, but it’s stuck down real well so I have no further choice in the matter!
The sentiment is stamped using another new purchase – someone had been using Flitter Glu on one of the Papercraft Planet forums, so I had to get me some. It’s a very tacky glue you can apply to rubber and clear stamps instead of ink, and then cover with glitter or gilding flakes (which come in the Starter Kit). Quite a few online craft stores in the UK are stocking the starter kit now, and it’s also available directly from IndigoBlu.
As far as challenges go just the one today and that is Passion for Promarkers - die cuts

  3. Love the hair colour, redhead or not. Yes, hair colouring of the inky kind is not easy, probably the reason why I havn't dwelled too much on it....
    Stunning layout and colours on the rest of the card, such a natural.
