This week I got to play with an adorable princess image, immediately I cringed at the idea of making her pink. I don't always like to stick to the norm...
I decided my princess would have black hair and a blue dress with green flowers! But before I show you how I coloured her, this is what she looks like before:
I coloured her using my sharpies, but had a bit of difficulty with ink spreadage because of the paper I used. Lesson learned. I then used this really neat glue that goes dry and sticky on the flowers on her dress and the one in her hair. I rubbed some shiny metallic green paper stuff (I don't know what it's called) over the sticky areas and voila! shiny flowers!
Because I don't have a skin coloured sharpie or koki, I used a cream coloured pencil to colour in her skin. I fussy cut her out and only applied adhesive to her body when I stusk her down, her head slightly curls off the page and I like the effect it gives without having to use foam squares.
I love the flowers in my stash, and the stunning Maya Road pins from Cole's little helper that will take me forever to finish because I love them so much, nuff said.
Whoever said stamps were expensive? I have a batch of KaiserKraft sentiments that cost me R25.00 for four phrases. Needless to say, I have about 7 different sets....
None of the paper came out scrap stash, and I'm ok with it. Sometimes you just need to let your hair down and be compulsive :) Only the yellow was inked (with green), the rest was left as is for a cleaner look. The blue paper serves as my dot, and the lines of the different matts serves as my stripes :)
I heart girly cards, and I just wanted to prove that I dont always use pink...so wah!
Hope you all have a fantstic day today, it's almost weekend :)
P.S. Isn't this just the cutest face you've ever seen?
