Welcome! Today I felt like coloring something, and having been inspired by my friend Colleen Schaan's amazing hair coloring at CHA, I decided it was time to tackle a long, flowing hair image. This sweet image is a digital stamp from Saturated Canary, Butterfly Princess. I printed it with a Canon MG5220 Ink Jet Printer on X-Press It Blending Card.
Shown above are the Copic markers that I used for hair colors. I did not leave the white of the paper for highlights since the base color was pretty dark, but it still has enough contrast to look shiny.
These are the colors that I used for skin and eyes. That E04 was for her lips, and the B's and W2 were for her eyes. (You can click to get a larger image, as usual.)
I think the dress took me as long to color as the hair did (markers shown above). I haven't colored images with this many folds before--it was a learning experience!
For the background layer I used PTI's Berry Sorbet cardstock, impressed with a Spellbinders Asian Embossabilities folder which will be available in mid-August. I used a Grand Rectangles die template to cut and emboss the focal image. The ribbon is some seam binding, dyed with a Copic R22 Various Ink. I used a glue pen to attach some glitter to the princess's butterflies. That's it for today--thank you for stopping in!
