This time the theme was Love/Valentines. I had always had in my mind that I wanted to use one of my Unity Stamps for this, and I chose this sweet girl. The stamp is called 'Party Love' from Suzi Blu.
I had to include this picture so you could see the dimension!
I couldn't wait for this next step!! I coloured some white embossing paste with a turquoise Gelato and began to apply it through a Donna Downy stencil. I tried for a gradient look, so in the lower left corner it's darker than in the upper right corner.
And lastly I added the Party Girl. She was stamped onto some My Minds Eye paper several times so I could paper piece her dress and adhered with gel medium. I then coloured her skin and leggings with my copics. The shading you see in the first picture above was done with my Gelatos to add depth and to ground the image. See the difference from here to when she's completed? Oh, and I did a little doodling on her dress too :)
