Challenging Colors with The Challenge

Hello Everyone and Welcome back to Monday and another color challenge from The Challenge!

Today's colors were a bit tricky for me-well, actually, a real challenge for me- but in the end I love the results.

Here are your colors for this week~

I started with this absolutely darling and vintage style image from W Plus 9.  Really, how can you go wrong with this cutie??  I wanted to try watercoloring  her, but the skin scared me, so I compromised.  The skin is colored with Copics.  The dress and hair is with Inktense Watercolor pencils.  The background is done with Peerless Watercolors, and the cat and boots are with Kuretake Watercolors.  Sounds like mixed media to me, don't you think?
I considered a bit of bling, but decided to let this fantastic image stand alone.  What do you think?

I am entering this in the W Plus 9 Throwback Thursday Challenge.
I am also linking up to the Pretty Pink Posh Watercolor Blog Hop.

And the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge- 'Make Your Mark"

Ready for some more inspiration from the amazing team?  Check out what they have for you!

Hope you join us!  Be sure to link up your creation at The Challenge!
