Beauty Everywhere

Welcome back for another year of fun, cards and challenges at Southern Girls Challenge!!  I'm kicking off the year with something bright and cheerful, using a digi image from Ppinky Dolls Art.

This was quite a challenge for me, this image, as it was basically just a rough sketch.  I'm more used to clean, defined lines on my digi images, but this image was more shading, some scribbles and very ligh lines.  Being the beginning of a new year I enjoyed the challenge, and stepping outside my comfort zone.

Using my copics I coloured her little dress to look like she has a layer of green tulle, and I used Liquid Pearls to add spots to her little hat and eyes.  I added some grass under her feet as she is picking violets to give to someone special.

I constructed my card by using a sketch by Mojo Monday, and altered it to fit my image.

Here is what the image looked like before I started colouring.

Here she is all coloured and shaded.  I layered the image with a little packing tag, 2 strips of patterened paper and some yellow Bazzill.  The sentiment is a sticker.

I'm joining in the following challenges:
Digi Design Challenge - The New You
Catch the Bug Challenge - Anything Goes
Crazy for Challenges - Starting with Z (zig zag pp)
Sweet Stampin Challenge - New Stash or New Occassion (new tag and sticker)
Paper Creators Crafts - Anything Goes
