You Are My Sun, Moon, and Stars

Hi everyone! 
Today I am sharing a card I made featuring one of the new Stamping Bella stamps - Tiny Townie Astrology Chart.


As always, I've stamped the image onto Perfect Colouring Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I masked the two images together and added the sentiment above to make a slimline card. 

For the skin I've used E00, E11 and E21, adding E04 for the darkest shadows. 

For the hair - E50, E51 and E53 and finished off with some E33. 

On the dress I wanted to keep the colour light but also have lots of highlights on the top of the folds. I used a mix of E41, E45, E91 and E93 to get the colour I wanted and then I added some white gel pen on the light areas to make the highlights stand out. 

I also  used the mix of blues on both the stars hairband and the shoes. 

For the outer ring of the astrology chart I used Y26, Y23, and Y21. For this area I started with the darkest colour first, and faded to the lightest around the outer edge. On the next ring I used E40 and E41. 

The moon and stars in the centre - for these I also used Y26 and Y23, but I added some W3, W1 and W00. 

I cut the whole image out using a slimline die and popped it up on a light blue card base using foam tape. 

Thanks for dropping by today and see you next month.
