Make it Crafty - Anastasia

Happy Sunday!

This is my first post for Make It Crafty! I decided to use one of my new favorites, Anastasia! She is so gorgeous. It has given me a chance to experiment with skin and hair texture.

Paper: K&Co Botanicals
Ink: Copics, Alcohol Ink
Accessories: Chippies - Butterfly Leaves, Round Leaves, lace, Hodge Podge Hardware, flowers, Stickles, Liquid Pearls, Copics Aibrush System.

I colored Anastasia with Copics. I then masked her and colored the background with my Copics Airbrush System. I like the soft effect the airbrush gives.

I added Hodge Podge Hardware from Stampin' Up! for my sentiment.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid. I love that they resemble the flowers in her hair. The leaves are Chippies from the Butterfly Leaves collection. I painted them with a white dauber, then added a couple green shades of alcohol ink to give the leaves some dimension.

I added a Chippie Butterfly to the flowers in her hair. I used a white paint dauber, then used alcohol ink (blue and purple) to add color and topped it off with Stickles. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
