The image I am sharing with you today is called 'Flower Ballerina'.
I started by watching my week 1 video of the skin and hair class at Kit & Clowder so I could try and get good skin colour and shading.
I wanted the flowers and petals to be a girly mix of blue and purple so picked 3 copics to work with:
BV000, RV10 & BG10 and then layered the BV000 & BG10 over each other and finished the edge of the petals with the RV10. I went in afterwards with BG15 & BV00 to darken up some spots.
I love the colour combination and hope from the photos below you can see the true colour of the skin.
When it came to putting her on a card, I must say I was a little stumped so left her a couple of days.
Then I remembered a cute dandelion stamp I have from Inkylicious and thought I would stamp and heat emboss the background.
So I mixed 3 different embossing powders till I got just the shade I was looking for.
Cut the image and layered with a spellbinder die added a large pink bow (which I then changed to Blue) and again heat embossed a sentiment by Inkylicious.
Here is the finished result.
I hope you like her as much as I enjoyed colouring her ....... right I am off to colour more of these gorgeous stamps :)
