SWEETPEA DT INSPIRATION

 This week I got to use this gorgeous stamp from MARLON TEUNISSEN called EMOTIVE available here either as a single stamp or plate (Plate 231, Sheet 2).
 With my heart whirling with ideas and colour schemes I started colouring the skin tone and then the gold top etc. whilst I thought about what other colours to use.  I next when with the brown's of the skirt before choosing the palest of the "E" copics family to colour the stockings and frills.



Then with the image 3/4's coloured I decided to stay with the "E" family of Copics and chose the rich red-brown tones which I'm loving using at the moment to create the auburn hair colour.  I particularly love the richness of these colours and added move depth using a Sepia pencil.




To add a bit of glitz I used a sukura stardust pen.  I was thinking of using some embossing powders but I've forgotten where I last had my heat gun!  Guess I'll have to find time to have a good root around for it!

Apologies re photo:  still haven't found my correct setting yet!  I think it could be something to do with the light setting as the skin tone looks washed out on photo!

Techniques:

Medium:   Copics, Pencils, Sukura and glitter gel pen


Papers:  Fairyopolis papers, Craftwork cards papers, gold mirr card, cream card

Dies used:  McGills Flower punch and leaf punch, Marianne Flourishes, Spellbinders Corner

Embellishments:  Petaloo flowers plus other flowers, brads, pearls large and small

Best wishes,
