Willow in pink and brown

Elisabeth Bell is an amazing artist and her images are amongst my absolute favourites. They are pretty and girlie without being too cutesy, and they lend themselves perfectly to very satisfying colouring with Copic markers. Just look at this. Adorable isn't she?

I've re-used the classic sketch from the final minutes of the current Creatalicious Challenge, and combined it with Basic Grey's "doilies and ribbon", Whiff of Joy's "lace and pearls", Spoonful of Sugar's "pink and brown", Simon Says Stamp's "anything goes". The papers are from Bittersweet and Eskimo Kisses, the lace is from my LSS, the ribbon, pearls and flowers are from my stash. The doily was rescued from underneath a cup of hot soy chocolate and sprayed with Glimmer Mist, as were the little flowers. Everything has been distressed and inked, and my usual touch of Stickles adorns her to perfection. She does make me feel a little cold though - she needs a coat on!
