Deborah Boyet from Blackberry Lane Designs has given me some more of her wonderfully detailed images to play with. Do pop over and see all the other gorgeous digi's she has. I had to do this one first, and make it look like my own (sadly no more) bunny Lucy. Pic of her at bottom of post.
I spent a long time colouring her with my promarkers. I am still a little afraid of them and didn't want to make a mess of the lovely details. The shading was easy...everything already there for me to follow but putting the colour on scared me silly lol. I had to keep adding a bit, blending and putting away again for a couple of days so I could see it fresh. I did end up happy with the texture...wouldn't be on the card otherwise lol.
Spice; Terracotta; Caramel; Raw Sienna
Warm Grey 1, 3 & 5
Lots of blender.
As you can see I'm still a little obsessed crocheting, not just flowers, I'm mad on crocheting lace now too. I put amber seed beads for the flower centres and lilac pearls on the lace. I had to - yes had to, just couldn't stop myself - make a paper flower with scraps and the centre from the wobbly square nestie. I edged it round with amethyst promarker. Cut myself some lace edging with the papers and also made a couple of fancy pins to match.
This Lucy, one of my beloved house-rabbits. Usually called Lucy-fur by my hubby who so often had a nip on the ankle to make him move. This lady only believed in travelling as the crow flies....no way was she making a detour around your feet...get them out the way fast lol.
