SURPRISE HOP!!! MIC TEAM COLORING ZOE :)

UM SURPRISE It's a hop! I was heading to bed when I got the email that the hop is a "Go" so here we are LOL!!! 

Ok so are you liking the takes from my MIC buddies!!?? I see the line up and boy are we in for a treat. I better go check out to line up myself after some shut eye :)

I actually knew there was going to be a special image for my boss lady Zoe but who knew that this girlie was going to be named ZOE!!!!!! I'm so jealous.....(low voice)wish Krista had an image name after me ROTFL!!!!! 

I have to give Krista a special shout out. Dang can this girlie draw some hair! The MIC team LOOOVES coloring so when Zoe asked us who wants to color hair...WE WERE ALL RAISING HANDS LOL! I think our team is obsessed with hair conditioner lol! Oh sorry inside joke :)

Hey did you guys see my siggie from Krista Smith on my side bar!!??

 I might be wrong but I think I have the first card with her siggie. Again I might be wrong because at CHA everyone wanted to take pictures with her and I'm sure some crazy lady (besides me) asked for her autograph, lol!

Anyways lets get you hopping along here is my take.OH and  just to inform you ahem.... I am  officially a Spectrum Noir girl :) With that said I did color my girls with the Spectrum Noir markers. What do you think and yes with a bullet nib.... thank you :)





Now let me tell you why are we doing this hop :)

Zoe's excited to be releasing another colouring tutorial and it is on a topic that everyone always seems to want to improve... Colouring Hair!!† And in particular this e-book is, 'Colouring long hair in fine detail!'
Colouring Long Hair Tutorial
When Zoe was trying to decide on an image that would be perfect for this tutorial she just knew she had to contact the gorgeous Krista Smith from Saturated Canary. And... Excitingly Krista has illustrated and generously donated the perfect character exploding with big luscious hair full of layers and bumps! Just perfect for you to learn all of Zoe's little secrets to colouring finely detailed hair.
We thought it would be fun to have a little hop (and a few give aways of course) where the fabulous MiC girls and Krista have followed Zoe's tips and tricks to colouring long straight hair.
  1. Alyce
  2. Debbie
  3. Franz
  4. Sheila
  5. Krista
  6. Delphine
  7. Sandie
  8. Julie
  9. Ruby
  10. Tracy
  11. JennD
  12. Zoe
I hope you get a chance to check out the e-book and I want to inform that the steps are very easy to follow. Zoe was very detailed and her tips are well put together that you too will be doing some crazy detailed hair. With extra conditioner :)

Also Zoe teaches you how to achieve both ways I colored my images.

I'll be back to add my SN recipe. I'm quite tired and need to go rest lol!

Have fun and next enjoy my sistah Tracy!!

HUGS
