Happy Halloween ..... in purple

Good afternoon .... I'm typing really quickly because any minute now Madalyn is due to wake up ... so I hop it all makes sense ha hah ha.

I have used this gorgeous Tiddly Inks image called Toasting Properly.  It's my first attempt at colouring her and although it's not perfect ... I'm happy enough.

I have cut a shaped card .. just by drawing from a template and then cutting with scissors ... so it's a little rough in places.  As you can see it opens in the middle and the inside of the card is a lighter purple.

Oh no ... she woke up!

Ok it's hours later and she is now in the bath ... which I have delegated to her father and I'm supposed to be cleaning up the dishes but I just thought I would finish this :)

I coloured this gorgeous girl in the following Copics:-
V12, V15, V17 - purple areas of dress
YR04 - orange under her dress and tiara
YG00, YG06 - green areas
E33, E35, E37 for her hair
I have used some spica pen here and there as well ... got to work out a way to show this in the pictures!

As we don't really celebrate Halloween here in Australia this is my take on the spooky theme ...... well hopefully will be back tonight :)  Bye for now.

Would like to enter into the following challenges:-
Tiddly Inks #69 Halloween
