Sweet Green Pea

Been spoilt for choice today with these and I actually went for this one first because there was lots of skin to colour :D
The stamp is called "Come Softly" by Sweet Pea Stamps and I've made it special for Alison - Cockney Blonde as she's always leaving me lots of nice comments and encouragement so I wanted to do one with various examples of blending she can have an up close and personal looksie at :)

Image was coloured with promarkers using:

Skin - Ivory, blush, vanilla, oatmeal, pastel pink
Hair - Pastel Green, soft green, mint green with emerald on the swirly bits
Butterfly - Meadow green, leaf green, grass & Emerald and Pale pink, carnation pink & cerise
Eyes - Meadow green, grass & Emerald then glazed with dimensional magic.

The flowers at the bottom were white but I soaked them with the blender on the bottom layer then dabbed a dot of soft green on then touched the blender on again, this spreads the colour down. I've made the butterfly 3d and added some glamour dust to the wing spots.

Background DP is unknown but I've been itching to use it since Helen gave it to me! Thought the swirls fitted in nicely and I also used my corner adourner for the frame (after looking for it for an hour then finding it EXACTLY where I thought it was in the first place!)

Entering this into:
