Summer Dreams by Make It Crafty


As you can see I'm stilling going in circles...

I'm having so much fun with my Spellbinders Circles, Grand Circles & Grand Scalloped Circles I don't want to stop.

I've had this cute image from Make It Crafty printed and waiting for me for several days.  Sometimes I'm a little intimidated by an image and this is one of those.  The folds in her dress are one of the reasons and then her hair, could I make it look real?

I colored her with Copic markers BG75, BG72, BG70, W7, W5, W3, E97, E95, E93, E0000, E000, E00, R20, C6, C3, B66, B63.  The cloud background is done with a template and BG70.  After coloring her I'm really happy with the way the folds in her dress look and I think her hair is believably black. 

The "happy birthday to you" is a sentiment circle from The Cutting Cafe and I used Cosmo Cricket Pixie-licious papers.  For one last added detail I punched 2 Martha Stewart butterflies, stacked them and added three black half pearls to them. 

I've had a couple of comments about doing a cloud tutorial using the Copic markers.  I wish you could come over and sit at my craft table so we could spend an afternoon coloring together.
The clouds are super easy so I'd better do that for you soon, thanks for asking!
