Cupcake Princess Violet



Isn't this little gal the cutest with her whispy hair and sweet pose?? Her name is Cupcake Princess Violet by Mo Manning and she's available HERE. You can also find her gorgeous Cupcake Princess sister, Sienna instore HERE.

I haven't had much of a chance lately to play along with Sketch Saturday's challenges so I took the opportunity today. I mixed their gorgeous sketch with some delicious Bo Bunny DP - and of course Princess Violet - LOL. And once again I coloured AFTER making my paper selections - I think I may just be a convert to this way of crafting - it's only taken me a couple of years - LOL.

EDIT - I have had a request to list the copic colours I've used here - I keep telling myself I'll do this every time but it never seems to happen - LOL. Here goes...am pretty sure this is right!

Dress - R000, R00, R01, R02, R05
Sash - BG000, BG000, BG11
Hair - E40, E42, E42, E43, E44

My trick for colour selection is to ALWAYS use my colour chart and hold swatches of DP up to it to select colours and then choose lighter and darker values for depth.
