Spring is in the air.....

Hello again,

Spring is really in the air and so I thought I'd join in with my next make...

The fabulous image is from Polka Doodles and is the new Tatty design, Tatty is lovely because it means that my colouring did not have to be spot on as she is 'tatty' :)

The image originally had an Easter Egg in her hand as is part of a free download curtesy of the lovely Polka Doodles team, please take a look at there site, there is some fabulous designs for you to play with.  I cut out a heart (free hand), coloured it with my markers and then using a craft knife made a slot along Tatty's hand to slot in the heart and hiding the Easter Egg :)

I printed the image and coloured her using my Graph'it Markers..

Tatty in her fabulous bunny suit hopping into Spring

Skin - 4120, 4110, 4175 and 3110 with a touch of 4145 for her cheeks
Hair - 3110, 3125, and 3150 (No deeper shadows needed as she has her bunny ears on)
Bunny suit - 9500, 9502 and 6505 (YES my beloved blue-greys again!) and 4145, 5110 and 5120 for the pink touches
Eyes - 7130 (but its just a touch)

When colouring I always start with the skin on the face and then the hair because if I make a mistake there then in the bin it goes and I haven't spent an age on the rest of the colouring.

Once coloured, I matted her onto a dark grey pearlescent card from my stash and then layed the backing with more FREE downloads from the lovely team at Polka Doodles
I used 'Wallflowers' download pack and the spots from the 'Easter bundle' of papers.
Both backing papers where layered onto the same dark grey card for continuity of design.

The message comes on the Tatty free download from Polka Doodles and I again matted this on the grey card.

Then the finishing touches from my stash - flowers and a ribbon bow and a little ladybird that I've had for ages and thought it fitted well.

Hope you like her :)
