Tabatha has stolen my heart!

Hello there,

Woohoo, it's time for a new challenge for August with the Spectrum Noir blog and the theme is Anything Goes so, let your inner craftyness come out to play and join in.  The prize is just amazing!

Tabitha from the new Dollhouse Precious Dolls collection is just so awesome, so many different ways to colour her that I think I may just keep her on my desk!

I wanted to give her a real stand out background, hence the yellow!  I really thought she deserved to pop off the page and as yellow is a colour I usually shy away from, I thought well let's do this!

Totally pleased with how this turned out!  Happy dance...

Here's the materials I used:
Spectrum Noir markers:
Skin: TN3, FS1, 3, 7
Hair: BG1, 3, 5, 9
Clothes & Wings: GG5, DG4, 3, 2, 1,  GB8, 9, 10
Background: CT1, 2, 3

  6. OMG Sandie! This is OFF THE CHARTS! I LOve the image you chose, but even more so, what you have done with her! That bold, vibrant yellow is perfect to pop her off the black, grey & white, your coloring of her skirt is fanTAStic, and that sentiment?? Dang girl - sooo creative!
