Under the mistletoe

I'm running behind again this week with my posts, but I do have one for you tonight. Still working on my holiday cards, give me about another 2 weeks and I should be done my orders.

I just love the Uptown girl collection, have them all, but seldom seem to grab them to colour. My card today is showcasing "Uptown girl Eve - under the missletoe."

I'm really smitten with how this turned out. I wanted to do her in another colour other then red, I was thinking a deep royal/navy blue, but couldn't find any papers that would work, so I decided on this tone instead. 

I stamped her on bella's bestest paper and coloured  her with copics and shading around her done with prismacolour pencils. The colours I used for her dress are: BG70, BG72, BG75, skin E000, 00, 01, R20,
mistletoe - G94, R27, belt - black & C3, hair E15, 17, 18 & 29.  Pencils used are: Jade Green PC1021, and a very little bit of Peacock blue PC1027 - you don't need much of this because it is very rich in pigment.

After cutting her out using an oval s/b die, I sponged some versamagic oasis green around her very lightly.
Layered this onto a piece of Bazzill - Hazel which was cut  using the s/b Floral Ovals.

Designer paper is MME - Cowboy -( love all the soft shades of blues, greys and greens in this pad.) The base card is a piece of Bazzill - Lagoon,

Finished off with glitter on her dress, and  some white flock on the trim of her dress.  I added some corner bling -  from Want 2 Scrap.

I hope you like her as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Till next time......

Love her Pauline! She is gorgeous in that colour - one of my favs and I love the crease shading you've done on her dress and the bling in the two corners!!

Pauline she is gorgeous. The shades of blue are stunning. I like that you didn't put her in a red dress!!
