A Bit Witchy!

I'm taking a Copics coloring class with Suzanne Dean and one of the lessons focuses on coloring hair so that it has dimension and it doesn't look "flat."  I'm getting better, but it does take some practice.

In doing this lesson, I pulled out a ton of stamped images with hair (that I've accumulated through SCS swaps) and just started coloring.  Well, when I got to this little witch........I didn't stop with just the skin and hair...........I HAD to keep going!!!

This stamp is part of the Magnolia collection........which I think are just adorable!!!  There are basically two characters in the collection, Tilda and Edwin.  They are just perfect for coloring.  This one is called: Sitting Witch Tilda


I don't know who or what I'll use the card for......lol  But I just love how adorable she turned out!  And, I love her hair!  ;-)

Stephanie,
I can't believe you did black hair on your very first card! What a beautiful job of colouring you have done :o)
Great paper, ribbon and layout that showcases your wonderful Tilda

Stephanie said...

Thanks again, everyone. This wasn't my first hair coloring.......I did do 4 other "heads" before I tried the black, so it isn't really my first....lol And, believe it or not, my other hair combinations did not look as good. So, I'm as surprised as all of you that this one actually looked nice. Again, ty all so much for the wonderful comments.

Deb said...

GREAT job! It took me 3 or 4 images before I would even TRY black hair! You did great on the whole card! Love it!
