Choices?

 
Here is my page for the current Fall Fearless and Fly challenge over at Artists in Blogland. I went with the prompt 'My favourite Colours'. The problem was I couldn't decide I have always liked colours red, bright pink but I like them all! Currently I can't finish any project with out a 'pop' of black.
 
 
I was really pleased with the background but the focal character was not so great. It looked a bit flat, so I decided to do some stamping over the top, but went with black and that didn't look great either. Was just about to through it away when I thought, why not? So I scanned my image and after a few digital tools this is what I came up with. The image was then cut out and added to my background, of course I couldn't leave the black out and sketched over my image with a Pitt pen. I can't wait to see what this looks like in the daylight as it was dark when I finished which isn't great for judging colours or taking photos either.

  6. Hard one that- deciding on a favorite colour.
    The way you have digitally altered your image is great- it adds real character. Hope you were pleased with the result in the day light too.

  9. I like the background too and I enjoy reading about your process. I tend to do the same thing and go over and over a piece and rework it.
