Tiny Dancers (Twice)

Well, today is my first day designing for Dies to Die For and I've got not one, but two samples. This wasn't originally intentional, but I spent so long on the no-lines version of the Tiny Dancers image that when I'd finished it I decided to make a 'normal' lines version to compare how long it had taken.  And my empirical study concluded that it took at least 3 times longer to colour the no-lines version.  That's just to colour it, not to make up the whole card!  Hence I kept the second version CAS while there are lots of embellies on my first version!





I also 'outlined' the no-lines version with Tumbled Glass before I started to colour the main image.



And now here's the 'normal' version....

Both versions are beautifully colored, wish I could give the no-line coloring a try, but I'm afraid I don't really have the time for it. Gorgeous cards, thanks so much for sharing with us at Penny Black and More!
