Pretty Gillian. just for fun.

This is an image from Prairie fairydesigns and is called pretty Gillian, isn’t she just the cutest..
I had a lot of fun colouring this image.. i used copics to colour her and then added some glossy accents to her glasses to represent the glass, some stickles on her necklace..
after seeing the fabulous card box that Donalda had done on her blog.. I just had to have a go.. so following Michele's tutorial this is what i ended up with.. (fab tutorial)
I think that this is just awesome. looks just like a little book..
a little book that can hold a secret gift!!
I am still having probs with my photography.. and the dress is a much richer red in real life.. looks a little washed out on these pictures.. Sad smile but you get the idea.
I have used magnolia papers for this project along with some flowers, from wild orchid crafts which i have glittered with stickles..

Simply stunning as always Rach!! Love her freckles lol. I've been meaning to make one of these since I saw them on Mayas blog. Oh no can't beleive you are moving and we never got to meet I'm so sad sweetie. I post that bit on my blog for you rflol you NEED to pop by that shop. It doesn't look much when you go in. Go around the full shop though as I found that ribbon hidden behind the sewing stand. They had loads of very unusual stuff looked fab I wish now I had got more but I can go next time I'm down.

LOVING you back on blogger BTW mwah

Sam said...

Wonderful card/box Rach. Saw the tut on Donalda's blog, thought it looked fiddly but think I may have to have a go now having seen yours. Fab colouring, as always, and such a cute image, more for my wish list!
Do you use a light tent when you take your photos, they always come out so clear? Mine are always so dark but then it is usually late at night when I take my photos.
