Morning all, well things are starting to go quieter - but not much still got so much to do and not much time - but finally found a bit of time for sitting down and crafting :) So with having some time I have been playing with my Dolls - NO not like Barbie - the gorgeous ones from The Paper Nest Dolls!
Now I just fell in LOVE with Bubble Bath Ellie when I first saw her she is available from The Paper Nest in Rubber and Digi - she has been sat in the pile of 'to colour' for far far too long and her time finally came around!
Once she was coloured though I did become a bit stumped on what to do next! So after searching the internet for a while I came across this fantastic sketch from Dutch Magnolia Lovers - I just had to give it a go although I don't use Magnolias!
It all just fell together from there, I used my lovely cameo to do most of the cutting - I did take me a while to think of the sizing but it all just came together! Here she is a bit closer!
She was coloured with copics;
E000, E00, E02, R20
E30, E31, E33, E35
B93, B95, B60
W0, W1, W2
I added some diamond glaze over the top of the bubbles to give them more of a realistic look, once she was dried I stuck her to the circle and cut the excess of the image away, The edges of all the papers were distrusted using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Old Paper, I didn't want anything that was too heavy on the colour. The papers are all from Dovecraft Back to Basics III - its a beautiful paper pack with all the pinks and purples in! I then couldn't resist with adding some of my flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts on there too!
