Lavender Bittybloom

How is everybody on this Canada Day! I'm pretty happy because it is a holiday and I have a couple extra days off to make for a nice extra long weekend!

Little miss Lavender Bittybloom was part of the haul of rubber that came home with me on my trip to Stamping Bella. I pulled out the copics and colored her up to match this Basic Grey wisteria paper. I used pencils and gamsol to create some nice soft shading and then sponged Versamagic Vanilla ink on the edges. While I had the pencils out I used the white pencil to add some lighter highlights to her skirt and hat. And of course, no bittybloom is complete until you add some glitter. The ribbon is something I got at Archivers a while back and I picked up the ribbon slide in the clearance bin at Pickle. I think it might be Maya Road.

For inquiring minds, these are the copic colors used on the image:
G20, 40, 21, T1
BV02, 04, 08, B60
E0000, 000, 00, 11, 13, 15
E30, 33, 35, 39

Thanks for stopping in! I'm off to enjoy my extra super long weekend.

Beautiful card! Your colouring techniques are phenomenal. The whole Wisteria collection of papers is so nice. Love the colour matching for your image. I wish Chatham wasn't so far from Toronto or I'd come for a class! Maybe you can do a guest class at Stamping Bella sometime.
