Make It Colourful DT Light Source Top Left Challenge

Helloooooo lovely people of blogland, it's time for a new challenge at Make It Colourful     and this week Zoe has kept us all on our toes and has chosen 'Light source from the TOP LEFT'.

Wow did I have to work at this or what, I have to admit that I normally put some light areas in hair and such like but haven't ever really thought about where the light source is coming from or what the effects will be.

I chose to use Flirty Seniors which you can find Make It Crafty Zoe's online store.
The image is coloured in copics and this is my first attempt which although I am quite pleased with I can see areas where I could have improved but as luck would have it my printer died on me this week so I couldn't print it out again. (it was definetely one of those weeks, the kettle started to leak as well went to replace that and thought I would treat myself to one of the super duper steam irons at almost £175 whilst I was still in full time work, to more months and I am down to a four day week so money will be a bit tighter) and of course it was that evening that the printer broke and apparently its going to cost more to repair than buy a new one: - Oh well I guess thats why I got a credit card lol. Hopefully I can talk hubby in to coming to get one with me this afternoon!

Anyway  musn't waffle back to my colouring, I tried to work out what bits the light would hit such as his head and shoulders and parts of our saucy lady and then tried to put shadows in the right places. I think I need to try and be a bit braver with the shadows as not sure that they show up enough. I hope though that after seeing my first effort that you will give the challenge a go. You dont have to use a MIC image, but it would be great if you did

Heres a view of the whole card the papers are from Tim Holtz idea-ology Vintage Shabby which is my new fav, the flower is a Tim Holtz die.
