June seems to be running away on me, so before it does, here is my take on Sue Sykes‘ June sketch:
BabyOfTheFamily is 13 and experiments with her hair. A LOT. She found some YouTube tutorials on how to colour hair using chalk. The best part? It’s temporary!
As she is talking about trying this out, I say, “Hey, let’s get out my Clearsnap Chalk Inks and give it a go.” [I probably shocked her with my enthusiasm]
The bright red and teal parts are blond streaks she coloured with the ink, but I think the purple showed up well at the dark bottom parts of her hair.
TIP 1: After rubbing the chalk ink against your hair, heat set it a bit with a blow dryer.
TIP 2: Vibrant and bright ink colours work best.
And the part I was happiest about? It cost nothing!
I used Glitz Design”Uncharted Waters” collection that has some fun plastic embellishments…..

I didn’t colour my own hair, but I did alter the colour of my title letter stickers using a Spectrum Noir alcohol ink marker. I got a great deal on my markers over at Canuck Crafts. Click HERE to visit their online store. Awesome service….and they know everything there is to know about alcohol markers.
Here is my quick video tutorial on how I coloured these alphabet stickers. Or you can click HERE to watch it on YouTube.
After you’re finishing colouring your hair….or your alphabet stickers….. stop by the Sketchy Challenge site over at Canadian Scrapbooker and have some fun!
