Izzie. Today she's pretending to be a bunny and is holding a ginormous Easter Egg. I swoon everytime I color her ringlets. I have pin straight hair and would die for curls. I know, those of you who have curls would die for straight hair, right?
I used this opportunity to pull some spring green and pink design paper together. The background plaid is Authentique Splendid, the green gingham is from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found two Breeze and the pink is from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Market Street. All are 6x6 paper packs. Yup, I collect them and hoard them. I added some Tim Holtz Distress Inks to the pink strip and around the image while leaving the panel in the Nestie die.
I stamped the image onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copics. I did add shading throughout with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. I struggled with Izzie's coat. And actually I almost trashed this. I started with a soft yellow but it was too soft. I added some golden colors but it looked blah. Next was a little purple...nope that didn't work either. Lastly I used RV19 and it looked like a nice deep burgandy over all her other colors. To my surprise that's how I achieved this. It's a little bit dark but I liked the pop of color.
The little rosettes were made using scraps of the back side of the gingham paper - it's a green polka dot. I accented with some Close to my Heart leaves, stamped a Bella sentiment (from Eva Bloom stamp) onto the center strip and stitched it all on my machine. Oh and I added some glitter too. Done!
