Glitter N Sparkle Challenge Blog Week # 172 Inspired by Songs

Good Morning and welcome to this week's Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog
This Week's theme is
Creations inspired by songs.

What a fun challenge and we all had great fun choosing our images for this week.
Now I got Bugaboo Images to choose from and I decided on the Song 
' Working 9-5' by the legend that is Dolly Parton
Here is the card I have created with this theme

The image is called Frame it - Escape Key and I have teamed it up with work like backing papers and added wooden clocks to represent how we all sit there waiting for end of the day to come around. I have finished the card with ribbon from Meiflower crafts and a sentiment from Lili of the Valley.

Here is a close up of the image which I have coloured using Letraset Promarkers.
Colours used are:
Primrose, Pastel Yellow & Mustard for the Hair
Blush, Saffron & Pastel Pink for Skin
Wild Cranberry - Glasses
Cobalt blue - Clock
Ice Grey 2, warm Grey 3 & Coo Grey 5 - PC
Ice Grey 1 & Pastel Beige - Filling Cabinet
Pink Carnation & Wild Cranberry - Mug
Herb Green, Grey Green & Ivory - Books
Orchid & Bluebell - Jumper
Gold - Pencil
CG5 - Chair
Saddle Brown - Coffee
Chilly red - Heart
Ice Grey 1 - Escape Key
Sandstone & Cinnamon - Desk
Cool Grey 1 - Outline of image

Just a few colours :)
Loved doing this one.

Now I also helped cover one of our team as Chris was unable to do this weeks challenge.
So here is my second card

Now this one was already picked but I have chosen the song:
'With a little help from my friends' By the amazing Beatles

I have kept this quite simple and used the purple colours as a focal point.
Finished with wooden letters to spell out 'Bestie'

Here is a close up of the image I have coloured

Violet - Dress
Tequila Sunrise, lush green - Flower on the dress

Crimson - Heart
