Charlotte is back...!
Charlotte has returned proudly wielding her poor tortured baby dolls. I get a kick out of this image by Annie Rodrigue for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps every time I start to color her. She is my favorite (so far) from the Moonlight Whispers line. Today I tried to go a bit monochromatic on the background papers, only adding pops of color with Charlotte and the red gemstones. I found some black spider brads that I had purchased last year and decided to add a red gem to give one a Black Widow feel. You know what my favorite part of this image is? It's Charlotte's hair. Look at all those crazy corkscrew curls! Aren't they fun! Today I made her a brunette. I'm still learning how to color blonde and redhead colors for hair using the Copics, but I am really digging the brunette. I used E49 (dark bark), E37 (sepia), and E31 (brick beige). I like this combo so much that everyone might just be a brunette going forward...!
That's it for today. Hope your week kicks off with good things hiding around every corner!
