Yup, experimenting again

If you are looking for WHIMSY STAMPS new release blog hop and prize draw then you can find my post HERE.

Today is a new challenge at Tickled Pink Challenges and we have a really nice sketch to follow. I used a new  image called August.
She is coloured with Copic markers with Prismacolor pencils and the background is done with soft pastels.
I went for a really rich colour scheme and happy over-embellishing this time. :) The feathers were fished out my kids crafts box (one of these days they will start to slap my fingers!)
Challenges I'm entering:
Crafts and Me - #30 Ribbon
For Fun Challenges -  pink, blue, purple, green, yellow (use at least three)
