Hugs & Kisses

Look at this pretty little lassie from Sugar Nellie, isn't she adorable?! I colored her in pretty pink and greens, one of my fave color combinations, using my Prismacolor pencils. I did her shoes with a black Sakura Glaze pen, to make them nice and shiny. Her skin is colored with Copics E0000, E00, and E11, I use these colors almost exclusively for skin tones. Much more realistic than anything in my colored pencil collection. I don't know why I can't get good skin tones with pencils!
The delish paper is from Imaginisce, which inspired the colors for her dress. I also punched out a couple of flowers from scrap DP with a Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch, and layered them to make the little floral embellishment. Covered the smaller flower with Stickles, of course! I adhered the flower on some layered circles cut out with Nestabilities. The circle sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I almost always use a strip of cardstock to wrap my ribbon around (to hide the edges) and punch a border along one edge. This one is Fiskars Flowers.

Thanks for visiting, come back soon!
