Sister Act Challenge #50

Digi Darla Designs was slated to be the sponsor for this week's Sister Act  anything goes challenge, but unfortunately due to health reasons their site closed, so Jenn is offering a different prize.  Stop by the blog to see what the DT has in store for you.

I'm using an Aurora Wings digi - Hydrangea Fairy.  Instead of the blues and violets from my last card, this time I made the flowers in pinks and used an oval die around her.  This week's Freshly Made Sketch #129 inspired the card design.  I wanted to keep clean lines in the card so the image takes center-stage and is enhanced by the paper choice.  I focused on her eyes with my coloring, paying special attention to eye colors and where light is reflected in them as I watched television. Aside from the shading, I added a little brown around her retina and a dot of light with my white gel pen.

I remembered to write down the Copics I used this time.  I always appreciate having a reference when folks list them, but usually forget to keep track as I work!
