Pink & Chocolate ... mmmmmm chocolate

What a gorgeous day it has been today!  I hope you had a lovely day also.  It was sunny and warm, but not hot. My little one and I were both not feeling great today ... but we still spent nearly all day outside playing with the two chooks, two cats and the dog, digging in the dirt, picking flowers and lemons and all the other stuff that 2 year olds like to do.

The card you are about to see is an odd one ... well in my eyes it is.  I'm not terribly sure about the colours and the layout.  I LOVE the way my colouring turned out on Make It Crafty's Elizabeth, its just the rest of the card I'm not sure about.  Feel free to give me your honest opinion because this is how I will learn :)

I'm totally thrilled with the shading of Elizabeth, especially her legs.  I wasn't sure where I should put the darker areas on her dress so I hope its right.  I really struggle with light and shadow.  I embossed the light brown card (lets be creative and call it 'late') with a chandelier embossing folder through the cuttlebug.  And the rest is pretty straight forward.

The copic markers I used were:-
E50, 51, 53 - cream area on dress
E000, 00, 02 - skin
R81, 83, 85 - pink areas
E35, 37 - hair
and there is clear spica pen on the fan, flowers in her hair and buckles of the dress.

Wish I had legs like that!
