I coloured her using my copics and added some polychrome pencils to add depth!

The papers are all from my scrap box that has finally come home!! (along with another three draws and my big shot and all my dies!) Things with the house are at a bit of a stand still as we need to get a radiator moved in the room before we can finish it and get the kitchen done, so I will be making the most and crafting!!!
