Love Letter

18:12:00


Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you a card I made using Love Letter, a gorgeous digi by Hannah Lynn available at Crafts and Me now :) I am a huge fan of colouring hair so this was heaps of fun and I love her little mermaid tail!


I have used some beautiful Webster and My Mind's Eye papers, a bunch of flowers, some ribbon, leave, and jute mesh. I love adding lots of layers but sometimes it is hard to see everything that I have used lol!And of course I have added some cheesecloth ;) 


I have coloured this cutie up using copic markers. On her tail, I started with the blues and once it was done I coloured in to the blue with my yellows. To get a nice shaded look, I just blended the lightest blue back into the yellow using feathering strokes, and only just overlapping. Hope this makes sense! :)

Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R11
Hair: E11, E13, E15, E18
Outfit: Blue BG000, BG01, BG05, BG09 Yellow Y000

Don't forget there is still heaps of time left to enter the challenge this week which is Punches and Dies. The prize this week is a good one - a $20 Sweet Pea Stamps gift card! Can't wait to see all of your wonderful entries :)

Sorry I am so far behind with catching up with all of your lovely work...I promise I am sitting down now and am prepared to be blown away by your stunning creations! Hope you all have a great day!
