A Little bit of Hope...

Evening all, well feeling a bit better about myself now, have eaten and chilled, although I'm thinking about raiding the biscuit tin soon! Earlier today saw the release of some new Sugar Nellie digis over at Funky Kits, they are so adorable, well they are the adorable's after all! Well I played with Bambino earlier and since that post I have been playing with Hope! She is so stunning. 


I have change my method of colouring today, I have used my watercolours, I used to hate using them as I could never get the effect I wanted to get, but since using my pro-markers I have learnt a few different techniques that have helped me use them today! Of course I have still used my pro-markers on this card for her skin tone (i don't think I feel up to trying skin with watercolours!)


Her dress and hair were coloured using my watercolours and her skin with pro-markers.  I don't think it looks too  bad! I was so surprised when I looked at her after colouring at how good she looks! I was so impressed with her hair I had to take a close up of it! 


Her skin tone was created by using Sunkissed Pink, Dusky Pink and Pastel Pink (for her cheeks) and blush over the top of them all.  Here are a small bunch of roses I have made, well I purchased them from 'The Works' and have coloured them using pro-markers.  This time I used Blossom to colour all the petals and then using Orchid just on the edges, it gave the flowers a two-tone effect.


I would like to enter this card to the following challenges;
