Sweet Pea Digi Stamp

Hello Copics fans how are you all? Vicky here today with my first post of 2013.
Today I have used a Sweet Pea digital image by Karen Middleton. Now my most favourite things to colour are faces/skin & hair..........I can totally relax when colouring hair its the one things that never stresses me out. I love Sweet Pea images but its been sooooooooo long since I have coloured one, so here is a beautiful lady for you............
This is 'Tara', isn't she so pretty. I kept the papers light as I wanted the image to be main focus.

I coloured her in the same colours the artist did but I didnt do her hair as light.
Colours I used are...........
Face - E13, E21, E00, E000, E0000 & R20 for the cheeks & R85 for the lips.
Hair - C9, C7, C5, C3, C2, C0
Leaves - YG97, YG93, YG91 & used the blender to lighten in places
The background I used G000 & the blender pen again to make it faded in places.
I then added White Liquid Pearls to the berries.
She was then matted onto a Spellbinder die-cut in grey card which I also dabbed with white Gesso.

I have used Pion Papers, I love these papers, lovely lace, scalloped pearls & some gorgeous flowers on top of some Memory Box die-cuts. I kept the flowers in neutral tones again to let the image shine out.

This card seemed to flow together so nicely & the image I really enjoyed colouring. If like me you love hair & faces then Karen Middleton & Hannah Lynn do wonderful images for this kind of colouring. They are fabulous if you want to practice hair colouring as well as skin colouring & shading.

Thank you for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
