Totally Clueless

Hello.  Welcome.  It's the weekend so usually my mornings are devoted to madly finishing and posting projects.  For some reason I decided to be responsible and get myself out in the garden to do a few jobs that have been on the list for far too long.  This means that the card for STAMPlorations and the journal page for Darcy remain unposted and I missed both deadlines.  How silly was that!!   But I do get 10/10 for gardening.   

In an attempt to join in before I missed anymore linky deadlines I checked out the PaperArtsy blog to find that Clare Lloyd had posted number 2 face of the month.  Really enjoyed proving to myself last month that maybe I can draw so thought I'd have another go.  And just to complete my totally clueless afternoon I have just realised I am on Saturday, not Sunday so the PA linky doesn't close for another day.  Gosh, I may be early for something today after all.   Happy Dancing and LOL

Here's my initial sketch onto a #7 manilla tag.  

Tah dah.  I coloured her face with FF Rose and added a little magenta to it to get the cheek/lips highlights.  The hair is FF Butternut with a bit of homemade brown added for the highlights.  The background is FF Limelight stamped with the little bubble stamp from PaperArtsy SM12.  I used Promarkers for her eyes, the outlines and the caterpillers eyebrows.  A couple of flowers stamped with JM34 and coloured with FF Pansy and Limelight and a couple of hearts from SM12 stamped and coloured with DI Picked Raspberry

I added some wool, its like a flat knitted ribbon, and a silver bead.
