Pearls in my Hair

Only me AGAIN! yes I'm on a bit of a mission, have a poorly little girl snuggled up on the sofa, so I am making the most of the peace and quiet and catching up with all the posting I need to do! 

This is another image from the A Day For Daisies latest release Birds in my Hair.  As you know I was excited with the last image and I was just as excited about this one! and I used one of my new sketch markers! This is one I have made for a friend of mine, it was her birthday yesterday and i hope to pop it though her letter box today, just hope she docent see this post before I have dropped it through!  This is Pearls in my Hair... 


Such a simple and elegant image! I loved it from the moment I saw it! I didn't know what colours and so i just picked BG57 and BG49, you can't see the darker areas too well in the photos but it does look good.  I colour her hair with Y35 and Y38, I do like this combo for hair at the moment! and I tried once again to add the light into her hair, i still need quite a bit of practice with that one! 


The paper was a 12x12 in my stash, I believe it was an Echo Park paper, I just thought the colours went well, the tag that says 'a walk in the park' was taken from the other side of the paper.  I also used some more beautiful washi tape! I am obsessed with the stuff at the moment! I LOVE it and hope that my collection will keep on growing! 

The sentiment stamp is from LOTV.  and the ribbon flowers were in my ribbon stash, I have had a few of them for a while and never had the guts to use them... I think I kinda like them now! 


The birds were coloured using E33 and E35I added some stickles in her hair, although they should be pearls I coloured them as berries to make them stand out a bit! I think I will make sure I colour them as pearls next time! I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;
