Make It Colourful... Winter Night with Dalecarlia Coat Tilda

Hi me again and with a card for Make It Colourful new Challenge Light source from a lamp,candle or get creative and surprise us :D
I was happy that I coloured my oldie but a goodie Tilda with Dalecarlia Coat.I could never get tired of colouring her. For some reason I think the challenge is not that hard guys.Many people get intimidated stepping out your comfort zone but you need to give it a try at least.
My tip is definitely start of with your light colours and what helped me was drawing in my lines with a pencil creating my light.You could always erase those lines later.
LMBO! or you could put a flashlight behind your card of the lantern,candle etc and take a picture of it.
IT WILL BRIGHT UP FOR SURE LOL! NO NO NO that's cheating lol!
but I tell you what that helps too I did that as well.
To enter your creation you could go HERE the new MIC GALLERY.
Ok ladies and Gents this is my take
there's a Magnolia Doohickey Vintage Tag behind the image and the border of the image is dripped with texture white crackle paint and glitter.
