The papers I used are from the My Mind's Eye 'Love Me' collection - so perfect for Valentine's Day! I have paired this with some gorgeous red and sepia toned flowers, a gold edge plate, and a doily all from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also used some beautiful lace to soften the image, and three bronze coloured Kaisercraft rhinestones.
I coloured the image using copics, and distressed all of the papers with Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Antique Linen.
Here are the Copic colours that I used:
Skin: E50, E53, YR00, E00
Hair: E71, E47, E29
Trousers/Hat: E50, E53, E00, E31,E43
Top/Flowers/Ribbon: R11, R22, R05, 100
*QUICK TIP - You will notice that I used Black 100 in the mix for the flowers, and the ribbon. As I don't have a huge amount of copics, I tend to make my own colours by 'mixing' the copics. In this case, I wanted a darker red, so I took the my R05 copic and rubbed the tip on the Black 100 pen to pick up some of the colour. This won't ruin your copics...you can simply rub the pen on a scrap piece of paper to lose the colour that you picked up!*
