Hannah Lynn Ladybug Love


I decided to do a second blog post today so I could share a "just for fun" card that I made recently.  I came across a challenge blog called Crafts And Me which also has a store.  Some of the design team used these beautiful images and I just had to find out more.  I discovered Hannah Lynn stamps and digital images at the Crafts & Me online store.  I've purchased three digital images so far and each time I color them I sit back and think, "she's beautiful"!  I don't buy "real" stamps anymore because I don't want to store them but these are really tempting!

I tried a new skin color combination for this beauty and I'm not really happy with it.  It's E53, E51 & E50.  I think the E53 makes her face look dirty instead of shaded and I couldn't blend it out.  I also grabbed the wrong marker for her cheeks R85 so I kept moving forward and blended the best I could.  Her hair color is E79, E74, E71, E70 and the other Copic marker colors are R39, R37, R35, RV34, RV32, BG01, BG05, BG0000, BG10.

I printed my image quite large so my card turned out very simple, I decided beautiful girls really don't need much extra anyway.

Have a good weekend!
