Copic Creations #24: Grassy Wonder and Joy...

Ok, so this card is VASTLY different than the last card I submitted for the Copic Creations challenge No. 24!  If you are interested in seeing THAT creepy little entry, just go HERE... warning... cute AND disturbing :)

I used Brunette Hair & Skin Tones techniques covered on the blog... I also worked with a dotting technique for the grass, and clothing folds.  The sun & cloud background was done with masking.

Stamps:  Wonder and Joy

Paper:  white UltraSmooth, dark brown, & Bazzill yellow cardstocks

Ink:  Memento Tuxedo, Raw Sienna & Cote d'Azure Palettes

Other:  Copic markers & foam tape

I love how her arms & legs turned out, but I over- saturated her face and it's way too dark and so are her cheeks!  If I do another one of these, I'll just leave the background white with the grass... I believe there is just too much going on...

What do you think?
