Farm Fresh Challenge, Easter Bean

Hello crafty friends!! Today is the start of a new Farm Fresh Challenge on The Greeting Farm blog.  The theme for February is A Touch of Red.  I've used the adorable Easter Bean digi for my card today.

I love love the beans! And she went just perfectly with some of the stamps from the new Eggstra Special clear stamp set that was released in January.   I used the coordinating Eggsra Special dies as well.  I colored Easter Bean with Prismacolor pencils.  Here are the combos I used: 
skin: dark brown, terra cotta, burnt ochre, sienna brown, clay rose, peach, light peach, eggshell, white, blush pink
hair: dark umber, sepia, tuscan red, sandbar brown, ginger root
white: cool grey 70%, 30%, 10%, white
pink: henna, clay rose, pink, blush pink, deco pink, white
blue: peacock blue, slate grey, light aqua, muted turquoise, grey green light
green: kelp green, olive green, apple green, spring green, pale sage, white
red: dark green, black raspberry, sienna brown, crimson red, scarlet lake, deco pink
yellow: light umber, goldenrod, yellow ochre, canary yellow, deco yellow, white

I hope you come join in with this months challenge!
