Cast a Shadow with Make It Colourful

This week we're casting a shadow at Make It Colourful. Our sponsor this week is Some Odd Girl.
I had never really tried to color a shadow before this challenge. I looked at LOTS of cards and I thought really hard about where the light was coming from. I imagined the sun in the upper left corner of the image. I colored the side of the house that was in shadow with C3. Then, I started coloring.

The images are Fairy Mae and Bee Tia from Some Odd Girl. I used Mushroom House and Whimsical Mushroom from Make It Crafty. Who would have thought mushrooms would be so perfect? The images are printed on Make It Colour paper, which Zoe has back in stock. Yippee! It's a dream to color on.

This is my second time playing with laser cut chipboard from Make it Crafty. I used Butterflies and Leaves. I painted them with acrylic paints and then added iridescent glitter glue over the paint.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Party Time Tuesday #18 - anything goes
2. Charisma Cardz #22 - something that flies
3. By the Cute and Girly - in the garden

Happy Crafting!
