    The DT samples are just out of this world!! Love them all 🙂
    Lucky you to get Asela, she is one of my heroes, I so admire her style and of course her coloring is just amazing!!
    I added my humble attempts to color with red copics to Mr. Linky, don’t have any hearts though 😦

    Stunning samples, ladies! You continue to amaze me (and reaffirm that I was definetely out of my league on a team with y’all!) These cards are all fabulous!

    Wow I found this challenge blog through Caudia Rosa’s blog and am so glad I did – the DT cards for all the challenges are amazing and the tutorials you have done are brilliant – have entered my first piece for the challenge this week, but have also really loved going through the past tutorials and trying the techniques – I can see the improvement in my eyes and hair already. So thank you very much – cant wait to see what will be next.

    This is a great challenge. Red is so difficult to color with, it was great to have some tutorials. Thank you for all the inspiration.

    What a wonderful challenge and such yummy Blog Candy! Andy Happy, happy Birthday Susana!

    I don’t normally think of a Red Fox as having pink, but pics I found online make their faces look pinkish so I went with it! 🙂

    I added my creation to Mr. Linky (No.48 Chrissy Le), but I forgot to add a direct link. Can you redit the link for me, I’m not sure how to re-edit the Mr. Linky. ( ), thank you!
