Los Mariachis

Morning - today is a new challenge at The Paper Shelter and the theme is Music and dance. I have been waiting for a reason to colour up this image called Los Mariachis  (Not that I need one!) so I did this for my Husbands Birthday (Still seems weird saying that!!) as he had always wanted a Mariachi band to play live for him since we went to Mexico for a holiday. 

It also gave me the chance to use my new stamps from My Favourite things - called Sweet Succulents.The greeting is also from the stamp collection. I coloured  the Cactus using pink, green & gold Wink of Stella pens that I used more like watercolours and it worked really well as they really sparkle. The stripe of paper is from Crate Paper - Journey collection. I also used a little gold pen to add some details.

I used these promakers and flexmarkers to colour the image-
Skin - Antique white, blush, soft peach, coral & Spice.
Hats - Chestnut & Raw Sienna
Suits - Emerald & Lush green.
Bow ties - Poppy, Ruby & Burgundy
Hair & Shoes - Warm greys
Instruments - Sandstone & Cinnamon.
