My studio isn't quite where I want it yet (see post below) but is so much better. Actually it is cleaner than before my disaster. However, I just had to create something. I was having withdrawal. When I do get the rest of the shelves up and everything arranged I will share.
I don't do Halloween. But I know little girls do love the dress up and Tilda is no exception. She dressed up as a shepherdess and is going to a costume party.
I used darker colors than I would have used at Easter because it is fall. I colored Tilda with Twinkling H2O's using a water brush (the water is in a barrel of the brush) on watercolor paper. I tried using fantastix as a brush but didn't have too much success. I still need practice with the water brush. I was going to take a water color class but instead I bought 4 new tires for my car. Not near as much fun. The face I did with water color pencils and a dove blending pen. Then I decided because Tilda is dressed up she might want so shimmer to her checks so I did them in the Twinkling H2O's. For the lamp I used polar flower soft. I tried making it a little finer by rubbing it back and forth between my fingers.
Here is a close-up I don't know if you can see the shimmer or not.
The card is a gate fold and I made some embossed lines using my new Score-It-All that I won from 7 Kids College Fund on their challenge blog here. I was so excited I had been wanting one of these tools but hadn't quite got around to purchasing one. (and not that I was going to be able to any time soon after my tire purchase) So thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am truly thrilled and thankful. I can't wait to use it more.
