Rapunzel

Phew, did you ever start an image and almost abandon it halfway?

That's what happened to me yesterday when I began to colour my image for this weeks Polkadoodles Inky Pinkies DT project.

I was actually after an image that I could knock out pretty quickly as I am a bit behind, boy did I pick the wrong one, I stopped several times, but time was short so I muddled on and it has actually turned out better than I thought - That's not to say I am happy with it, so here goes.......



Image is Rapunzel and colored with Copics.

I started with the brickwork, which was mean't to be a soft grey, but hey, I got a bit carried away with my W9, next i did the skin and my E4 went a bit wild and wobbly (not my hands - lol), but I persevered

Then the hair disaster happened, I just could not get my strokes fine enough, so I decided to add some gold gel pen, kinda works!


As a complete project, It is better than I thought it would be halfway through, but not what I had in my head.
I finished by layering onto some brick embossed white card, which I dusted a little distress ink over and also stippled some blue distress ink around the finished image.

Lastly I added some Ivy die cuts, to tie it all together.

Thanks for stopping by :)
