Chantelle at the Races for MIC WHITE colouring challenge

I'm back and this is another creation that needed to go up this past weekend :(
It was done for the white colour challenge for Make It Colourful.

OH EM GEE!! I lost her at HOBBY LOBBY(craft store in the States) LAST WEEK!!!!

I took her halfway coloured I only had her skin and dress done.That alone took me days I would say 4 to 6 days lol! Well I was colouring during the Thanksgiving rush so I kept stopping and picking it up.

I tried adding small details to the blank spaces and that's what made it challenging lol! When I realised I had lost her UGH I WAS SOOOOO MAD BUT MAD AT MYSELF!
I had her inside a sleeve with my copic chart so I knew they were together.I tried calling the store that was @ 35 min away from me but they wouldn't answer.I guess cuz I realised late in the evening and they we're getting ready to close.

I went the next day and I asked by the copic section and nothing. A lady that works there was helping me look around.I started tracking back my steps for it then the nice lady finds me by the Scrapbook section and says,"IT'S IN THE FRONT"!

I WANTED TO CRY OF HAPPINESS AND HUG EVERYONE IN THE STORE LOL!! I got my sleeve and ran home (well drove lol) to finish up the card lol!

So Chantelle at the Races had also a day out in Chicago too, LOL! 

Ok so here we are with Chantelle at the Races you could find her at the Make It crafty store. I have coloured her with copics. I wanted to use her as a Christmas card theme so adding the traditional colours and sentiment was a great token. It also has pink all over but it's coming out as red.So you have red, green,white, pink and black so a little mix up :0

Her dress was coloured with the C family group. I tried so hard to zoom in on all the thin lines created to cast the shadow. Hmmm... I think I could of gone a bit darker for the shadows but was afraid it will start to look more like a grey dress lol! The darkest C was C3.
I added thin lines to what I think could be a shadow or just a continuing pleat line. So a white plain space is great to add your own touch and could be fun to play with *_*

Oh almost for got you could do the same thing with plain skin. Kick it up a notch and enhance those muscle tones, lol! 

Oh I added a black feather on top of the bow to mimic her hat
