New Beginnings at Lacy Sunshine

Hi all! I have an an art card for you today created with Lillybug Dollie, a digital image from Heather’s  new collection “Stitched.” These images are some of the sweetest that I have seen in a while. They take me back to my younger days and my dolls and all the clothes that my grandmother and mother would make for them. I still have most of them too.

Lillybug Dollie was first colored with Copics. For the background I used PanPastels in Magenta and Magenta Extra Dark. PanPastels are wonderful to work with. You do need to use a fixative on your image when you are finished coloring.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 00, 04, 11, 21, R20;
Onesies, Hair Bows, Shoes, and Eyes:
BV00, 11, 13, 17;
Wings and Tutu: V01, 05, 06, 09
Hair: RV63, 66, 69, 91

My finished card is very straight forward with the layering and the embellishments. Heather gave us, the Lacy Sunshine Creative Team, the theme of “new beginnings.” My new beginnings are represented with the die cut flowers. I added a ribbon and corner pearls for the last of the embellishments.

List of supplies and their links:
Designer Paper: Fun Stampers Journey New Day collection;
