Digital Tuesday

Challenge #94 Tropical Warmth by Michelle R. (sponsor: robyn's fetish)


For this challenge I chose to use one of the new stamps from Sugar Nellies called "FAITH" from the Adorable - Home Grown range.   I chose this image to fit this week's challenge of "Tropical Warmth" because the girl's outfit reminded me of a sailor type dress worn in the Victorian times.

I coloured with copics and polychromos pencils.  I highlighted the pupils, hat and dress details with white gouache - which added texture too.





The cardstock was from Crafters Companion and the digi papers were from Jak Heath freebies - and she has numerous fabulous decorative papers to choose from.

To complete and also highlight the theme I added some gems (palm trees, whale in the sea and sail boat) and some matching small flat back pearls.
