...and back to Copics :)

It's my first time of colouring up Victoria Case image and I really went into town with shading here - I was using Make It Colour blending card and the brilliant thing abouit that stuff is that you can REALLY go into the town with layering your Copics. I am still to see the colours bleed on that card!
This image is called Thinking Of You - brilliant for all sorts of caard - I can even see it on back to school cards! The papers are from Basic Grey Life Of The Party pad.
 I was experimenting with different skin colour combo here - YR02/61/00/000, YG00, E13/15/0000. A bit unusual but works well, I think.
The fiery red hair is achieved with E07/09, Y21/38, YR18.
Those lush flourishes are a brand new set of dies from Whimsy Stamps - real versatile and incredibly intricate. And of course I used fair bit of flat back pearls - they just finish off the cards so well, I think!

Thank you so much for visiting and hope you found something of interest. :)

I love how the green pulls my attention into the center and the background on this is perfect - so much better than my not-so-splotchy attempt. ;D (Is that done with purple, orange and reds... maybe a little green?) Your highlights on the skin are fabulous and I can't wait to see what you do with more green! LOL *Hugs
