Well here we are right in the middle of summer, so what better way to celebrate then with a summertime challenge - right? I had many images that I could pick from, but decided on Ida Lulu.
I stamped Ida on bella's bestest paper with black memento ink. I used copics and pencils to shade. I cut her out using MFT rounded banner die- love the shape of this and I thought it fit perfectly with this image, kind of curved around her umbrella, then layered her onto a piece of pink c/s cut with the next size up in the banner dies.
Paper is from October Afternoon called Sidewalks. Dies used were MFT- rounded banner, PTI large scallop, MFT dainty lace border.
Copic colours: Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, Umbrella handle E33, Dress & Umbrella Y11, Y13, Y19, glasses R83, R85 flower R83, R85, BG01 - pencils for the grass and shading.
Miscellaneous items used: yellow satin ribbon, prima pink flower, glitter and glossy accents for her glasses.
