More fun with markers

Hello everyone!

I had planned to post a new project earlier in the week but things went a bit pear shaped and I managed to stuff up the card, two thirds of the way through!!  Grrr!!

So I took a craft break and had another play with the Christmas present my dear husband bought me
Heston Blumenthal's Smart Scoop Ice cream maker

and made myself a batch of "Smurf" ice cream
(basically it's Blue Moon with added mini marshmallows)

Once I'd sampled the newly made dessert, which definitely gets ♥♥♥♥♥ I located my crafting mojo that had been hiding in shame and I set to re-colouring the image & making a new card
.....and here it is:

Pippi Longsocks by Sugar Nellie
DP - Quilting Bee by My Minds Eye
Ribbon and dies from stash
and of course oodles of Copics!


Skirt - E93, E95, E97, E99
Top - YR20, YR21, YR24, YR27, E95, E97, E99
Hair - E51, E53, E23, E27, BG53, W8
Stockings - BG11, BG53, BG57, W00, W1, W2, W3
Skin - E000, E000, E00, E41, E42, BV20,R11
Wings - BG10, BG11, E000
Boots - E40, E41, E42, E43, W0, W1, W3, W5, W6
Background - E81, E84, YR30, E50, E51, W00, W0
Frog - YG61, YG63, YG67
Shadows - W2, W4, T0, T2

Hey, lets play "spot the difference" - what's different between Pippi above and as she appears on the card?

The image above was scanned, whereas the card was photographed, hence the disparity in colours,  I assure you it's the same image but can you spot which bit I tweaked????

see bottom of post for the answer


As always, thanks for visiting my blog today,
I'll be back soon with some more colouring goodness.

Toodle Pip
ANSWER - Did you spot that I gave her blue eyes - well done if you got it right!!

Well, if that's what Smurf ice cream does for you, sign me up. This card is wonderful and I love the colouring of this whimsical image. Great choice of background papers. The ribbon and flourishes add such wonderful movement to your card...like she's only here for a moment before she flies off. Thanks for joining our Anything Goes/Ribbons and Pearls challenge this fortnight at Craftitude. I hope we see you again soon.
