This morning, I enjoyed the quiet pace of Saturday mornings to sit at my craft table and play with color. This week’s color challenge at SCS helped me pick colors and this week’s retro sketch challenge at CTS helped with the final layout.
Isn’t she a cutie? To be honest, I had meant to make her pants blue (like denim), but I mistakenly started coloring the rain coat instead! The photo doesn’t pick it up, but a light coat of Wink Of Stella gives it a little sparkle. I used a white gel pen (shown here) to add detail to the pocket and boots. For some extra detail, the umbrella was paper-pieced with the same patterned paper used in the background and clear Nuvo drops mimic rain and give the puddle some shine.
Now to get this in the mail and remind someone of how special they are! Thanks for your visit!
