My first ever bookmark of this type, but I'm going to make others. I saw the idea on Tracey Payne's Blog Crafeezee, in fact it was my choice of top pick on Ambers Crafts and Stuff a couple of weeks ago. You can see her inspiring creation here. It's for the granddaughter of a friend...she's not having a good time, poor mite.
My image is a Mo's Digital, The betweener, and coloured with promarkers. I'm using the flicking method of colouring now...as opposed to making little circular movements....as demonstrated in the tutorial by Annika of Another Messy Crafter. She is doing a series of tutes using Copic's, but the techniques the thing for me. A real must see for beginners and otherwise.
My flowers are recycled from a flower arrangement I had years ago. Lupin or foxglove-ie type flowers that I pulled apart....and put back together in my own weird way lol.
Tan, Vanilla & Blush for skin.
Burnt Umber, chestnut, Cocoa & Terrecotta for hair
Rose, Dusky & Pastel Pink
Oatmeal & Soft Peach.
I don't need to tell you about the blender pen I used to clean up mistakes do I lol.
