Tilda dreams of Spring!

Good morning! Here's Tilda dreaming of spring! In Western New York we are doing the same! We've had some nice temperatures (around 50) the last couple of days, but today is different! Winds up to 60 miles per hour and rain changing to snow, temperatures dropping about 30 degrees! Well, the next best thing to spring is NEW spring papers! These are from My Mind's Eye's new collection, Grow! They just arrived at my door on Tuesday and I got to use three of them on Rox's sketch this week! The aqua and oranges are wonderful!
I got the card together and didn't know what to do for embellishments (after all, it is 5:00 am here!). I just placed the PTI ribbon on quickly. I may move it and add a sentiment in the big area, but I think it looks okay and I wanted to get a post done mid week for those who come by daily (and see nothing new!).
I used the usual copic markers for hair and skin.
I used BG10 and BG 72 for the wings and tights.
My yellows/ oranges are Y15, Y38 and YR16.

Thanks for visiting Cottage Creations! Gotta get ready for school, no delay for us today, I guess!

Love her little crossed legs! Such a cute image and well-colored! I'm home today...school is open, but my head is pounding because of the weather change and my power keeps going off! I have to watch the sump pump so I don't flood! Precious stamping stuff down there!

I just adore this card! Love the papers, design, the image... EVERYTHING!

Since I am new to your blog, would you mind telling me what your "usual" copic colors are for the skin and hair? I'm fairly new to copics and am trying to find the best colors for skin and hair.

My email addy is fancydancycrafts@cox.net

Thank you!
