A bit of Crimson Holly

Ok, so the holly isn't Crimson - however it is the name of this fabulous image which you can find in the Etsy shop of Ching-Chou Kuik.
I just love these images, they are a joy to colour.
You can find the image here.
So without further ado, here is my version.

I am so pleased with how this has turned out.
Who would have ever thought that my colouring could improve so much by just taking some online colouring classes.
If you have ever thought about improving your colouring skills then why not stop by the website at Kit and Clowder.  Trust me, the lovely Alyce Keegan who runs these classes is just the nicest person ever and gives one to one feedback for class work.  There is also a Facebook group too, lots of inspiration, fun and laughs, no dramas just like minded people helping each other out and having fun along the way.
Here are a few close ups for you.
The background is just coloured with two shades of blue polychromo pencil and a touch of purple.

There are 9 different colours on the skin and 4 on the hair.  I decided to add the white dots too.  Seen alot of these and haven't done it before but I quite like it now it's done. What do you think?

I do think the butterfly tends to dominate the picture a wee bit but hey ho I still love the effect.

Am really chuffed with the little robins too. 

I shall enter this into the current challenge at Ching-Chou Kuik which is Christmas along with a few others.
