Snow White

Just realised what an appropriately named image I used given the weather here in the UK. Mind you I hope you are more warmly dressed than this girlie from Kraftin' Kimmie called Snow White. I bought her at the NEC and am using her for the first time. I just love images with flowing dresses but they are challenging to colour. I really admire some colouring in blogland especially when there is a little white left on the dress. I usually try it and it doesn't work but it seems to have worked today. I think this is my best effort yet but I'll keep practicing. The papers are Papercellar Victorian Burgundy. I used anew MS border punch and various Prima flowers and pearls. Swirls are a Marianne die and the tiny leaves were made with one of the new Papermania punches. I rotated the sketch at Sketch Saturday and am also entering this into the challenge at Kraftin' Kimmee of seein' spots. (I added spots around the image with a Field of Sky stamp, there are spots in the border punch and swirl and the diamonds in the backing paper are made up of spots and dashes rather than solid lines.)

I love your colouring Marianne, Your right, sometimes that is hard to do and make it look soft. I think you have done a beautiful job! I love the colour of her dress! You have lots of snow there? We do not have any yet which is a LITTLE unusual...but I think it is coming!
