Rococo Cinderella

Today sees another gorgeous new release at Aurora Wings, the image is called Rococo Cinderella and she is full of lots of lovely details to colour and comes in both JPG and PNG format.  You can see all my team mates samples at the Showcase Blog (fab as always, I have such talented teamies).

I kinda struggled a bit with this one, firstly it took me age to settle on a colour choice, but really happy with the combination I chose, and also lots of folds - not my strong point :)

I coloured her with a mix of Copics & Flexmarkers I also added some prisma colour pencils over some parts which looks great in the flesh, but not so much in photos, it seems to have taken all the highlights out of the yellow part of her dress - note to self - less is more.

I ha d a really strong idea in my head of layout, which all revolved around the gorgeous clock, again I ran in to trouble, it was too detailed to cut well on card, so I ended up using vinyl and sticking to a card base then fussy cutting around it, I think it ended up ok.

Next came the glass slipper, I started by cutting the shoe and covering with glue and tiny bits of glass, but it did not dry and all the glass fell off, so I went with yellow glitter card to match my colour scheme and added a sentiment from Cinderella with the Cameo sketch pens.

All in all, after a few mistakes and a bit trial and error I have ended up with a card that I actually really like, obviously helped by the fact the Mitzi's images are just so beautiful.
