Double Dutch Sketch Challenge

Get yout sunglasses out!!
This is a very bright card for me - I usually stick with more pastels/muted colours, but when I saw these Bo Bunny papers (Spelndour) I just had to have them.
This fortnight's challenge at Double Dutch is a superb sketch - simple but so effective.
I coloured the image with a mixture of pastels and watercolours. (I struggle to replicate reds - and then they don't seem to photograph too well - is it me, or does anyone else have this problem? I would love suggestion as how to overcome it).

Bazzill basic cardstock : Bo Bunny Splendour papers : Sugar Nellie image - Daisy : Derwent pastels : Cuttlebug and Stampabilities label dies (inside) : Rest from stash

Stunning Heather, I can see why you fell in love with this paper it's absolutely gorgeous and so bright and cheerful. Love your colouring and the design is lovely, really like that sketch you used. Red is a difficult colour to photograph I agree and I always tend to take a lot more photographs when I have red in the card to try and find one that shows the colour best. Hugs, Chris xxx
