Ice Skating Blue


This is my second card today. I wanted to make a monochrome card and decided let's go all the way and give her blue hair, a first for me. I have tried pink and I have tried purple. I love the different blue shades of Copics and really had fun colouring her.
Image - Saturated Canary Nikki
Medium - Copics
Papers - Echo Park Winter Wishes
Tag - from an old pack of Papermania
Die - Marianne skates
Other - Viva Pearl decor pen, wooden snowflake, card candi, glitter, DI Faded Jeans
