Children of Cameroon


I wanted to color something different this month for Morgan's Art World Challenge Blog.  It is an Anything Goes Challenge.  This image is called Children of Cameroon.  It is available in her shop.  The link is on the right side of my blog.  I did some research to see what the clothing looks like in Cameroon.  The traditional garments consist mostly of black and orange with small amounts of other various colors. 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Paper Funday Challenges - Autumn colors

Digi Choosday - Anything Goes

Passion for Markers - Anything Other that Christmas 

Through the Craftroom Door - Anything Goes

A Place to Start - Anything Goes

  2. That's interesting about the colors of their clothing being black and orange. Your coloring on this image is absolutely sensational! WOW! Beautiful!

  3. Wonderful coloring and image. I worked for a physician who was from Cameroon and he would go back every year, he had opened a childrens hospital in his village. Thanks for entering your sweet project at The Paper Funday Challenge, best of luck in the draw!

  4. Wow, that makes my arthritic hand hurt just looking at that. Incredible coloring job! Yes, I'd learned somewhere about Africans loving orange and black clothing colors in everyday wear. Whereas here it's a Halloween combo and orange not a very popular color. Some of the traditional African fashions are stunningly beautiful and the orange hues are almost hypnotic. XOX

  5. You did an amazing job, Diane! Thanks for sharing your project with us at A Place to Start!

  6. I love that you did some research to colour this image as authentically as possible, and what a superb job you've done! I have had the privilege of playing with lion cubs, so they have a special place in my heart. Stunning card! Thanks for sharing this with us at Passion for Markers!

  7. Such a beautiful card and lovely colouring
