Inspiration for the new The Stamping Chef challenge....

Hello Again,

It's a Wednesday, and that can only mean the start of a new challenge over on The Stamping Chef Challenge Blog!

If you feel like a little stroll through the woodlands but it's too darn cold outside; then how's about grabbing this new image, 'Pygmy' from The Stamping Chef shop!  An instant download later...grab your colouring medium of choice and drift away with her!!!

Here is my DT inspiration....

Building the layers and textures up for her was so much fun, it ended up taking me ages lol

Here's what I used:
Image: Pygmy from The Stamping Chef coloured with my Graph'it Marker Pens
Hair: 2105, 2120, 2130, 3130
Skin: 4115, 4155, 4180, 3210, 6150, 4145
Clothes: 8130, 8150, 8160
Wings: 8110, 8130, 1110
Background: same greens for the bottom with a little 1230 & 1210;
Sky: flicks of 9400
Backing: Emperial Collage Sheet from Gecko Galz with the images cut and randomly layered.  Burlap from Live and Love Crafts and the flowers & butterflies from my stash.  Backing to the image is made with a light warm grey marker and flicked sideways to create movement.
The drops of sepia glossy accents on the flowers and butterflies for little rain drops!
Card stock: 7" square card blank; kraft kard for matting.

Here's the close ups:
