Girl with a hat

Hi there!

Here comes my next Bestie project for the Scrapbook Stamp Society challenge blog, where the subject this time is “anything goes – option “Hat”. I’ve used Sherri Ann Baldy’s IMG 699. You can find it by clicking the image no.

I really enjoyed colouring her, even though large areas to colour such as the hat are huge challenges for me. But I think I did all right. I really loved colouring the fur on her boots using the stippling technique, which will come in handy in many images.

I have used the following Copic markers for the project:

Skin: E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 and E04
Hair: E18 and E15
Eyes: E18, E15 and YR23
Shirt, trousers and bow: YR18, YR14 and YR17
Apron (?):  G00, YG67, YG63 and YG03
Fur: E18, E15 and E43
Hat: G99, YG67, YG64, YG03, R27, YR18, YR14 and YR17
Boots:  E15, E43 and E13 – Soles: W7, W5 and W3
Heart: R27
Flower in boots: R27, R32 and YG63

I found some autumn like paper and used that as a background – why else would she be wearing a hat? And in order to emphasize the image, I put her on a piece of dark green cardboard.

Finally I put a big orange or light copper pearl in each corner.

I hope you like my project. Feel free to leave a message to let me know.
