For a friend

Wow, I can’t believe it, three posts in two days! This will be my last this weekend but I am off work for almost a week starting Thursday and I am hoping to spend most of that time, except for eating and sleeping, in my craft room.

This project is for a friend whose birthday is tomorrow. I have had this image, Elven Hestia from Make it Crafty, for awhile and just haven’t colored her until today. I had a great time but it sure did take a long time!

I took a step out of my comfort zone for this one, this is the first time I have colored an image with an unnatural hair color but I like it. I used N6 in the shadows and then colored over it with BG07 to give it some depth. I like the way it turned out.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
