Imagine the unimaginable

004 (Medium)

On Mother’s Day, Zoe of Make it Crafty gave the Facebook group this wonderful digital image. Her name is Lilli Faye and she will be available in the store soon. I had some time today so wanted to color her up. Now let me tell you, several times I about started over but decided no, keep going. I wanted to try the sheer coloring that I haven’t done before and although it is not perfect I kept moving forward. I decided when I started her wings (the last part) that I liked how she was turning out. So glad I kept going forward. I am really happy with the outcome too. Here she is all finished and mounted on a card.

I’m not one to deviate from the norm but I am glad that I did with this one. As I was coloring her I thought I will probably try her again but do a different skin color …. hmmm, wonder what color.

I printed her on to Make it Crafty Blending Card and colored her with the following Copics:

  • Skin – E11, E00, E000, B66, B63
  • Clothes, hair and wings – B69, B66, B63, B60, YR23

I added some Tim Holtz Rock Candy glitter to the insides of each wing for a little glamour. For the ribbon on the side I used Make it Crafty Fancy Ribbon Sliders and Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dauber – Pearl. The papers are by Papermania – Burleigh collection.
