In a flap!

I was so excited to be able to use one of Rick St Dennis's awesome images!  They are the most detailed and full of character images that I've seen!  As soon as I saw this pretty little lady I just knew that I had to colour and bling her up!

Sister Act Card Challenges sponsor this week is Rick St Dennis, and I chose Texas The Vamp and her flapper dress, fur stole and feathers.

I coloured her with my copics, using a dress form that I created for a friend as inspiration for the colours.  I'm still very new to using Copics, so I use a lot of trial and error, but I was really pleased with the blending of the blues and greens in the feathers and wrap as they matched the dress form beautifully.  I added lots of teeny-tiny blings to all the jewels that Texas is wearing.  Some of them are green and others are clear.  Then I fluffed up the stole with brown flocking.  I used Graphic 54 papers to match the image, and some washi tape for the little tags.  The feathers are the same as the the ones I used on my dress form.
You can see the fluffiness a little better here and the jewels.  I also glossed up her eyes so they sparkle.
Copics used: E57, E71, C-3, BV29, YG17, R29, YG23, E00, BG05, B02
This is the dress form that I created for my friend, and from which I gained inspiration for my card :)
