Isabella's Challenge - Buttons and Bows

Hi and happy Wednesday! Mid-week already and we have a new challenge to offer at Isabella's! Buttons and bows - yum.

I am currently operating on cute-drive so it had to be this little sweetie I picked up from Isabella's Sketchbook.

She is coloured with Copic Markers and eyes were accented with Sakura clear glaze pen.For some weird reason I really struggled colouring her face, hope it doesn't show too much.

This is my first attempt at making rolled flowers, I've been admiring them on other people's card for a long while. The leaves I just hand-cut and bent slightly, then dabbed both flowers and leaves with Shimmerz Candle Light.

Copic Markers:
Skin: E11/00/000/0000/13, RV42, E04
Doll: E53/51/50/40, BG15/13/11/00
Girls hair: E29/37/99/97, Y38/17
Doll's hair: E37/35/13
Dress: R05/02/01/00, E49/47/44/43
Background: E55/53/51/50/13/31
