Little Party Girl for Colour Crazy Challenge for the 8th of November, 2019

At Colour Crazy Challenge for the 8th of November, we are sponsored by All Dressed Up and I chose one of the party girls from Three Little Party Girls.

My daughter inspired the sentiment!

As I mentioned, the sponsor for this challenge is All Dressed Up.

Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn/sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers.
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping. The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies. The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.

We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.

I have digitally printed the party girl with the plaits from Three Little Party Girls on to X-Press It Blending card and then cut using paper cutter.
I have coloured her with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
  • hair - YR14, YR18, E08, E18
  • clothing - purples - V22, V25, V28
  • clothing - blues - B14, B16, B18
  • ground - C0, C1, C2, C3
  • background - B0000, B000, B00, B02
  • outline - B02
I had help with the hair from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her Skin and Hair Technique class. Also the pleats in the dress are coloured with help from Alyce's Clothing Technique Class.

I have adhered the coloured image to a kraft card from Envelope Solutions and stamped one of the sentiments from Orchids Rock from the wonderful Marcella at Power Poppy in Nautical Blue Memento ink on to a scrap piece of X-Press It Blending card and then outlined it in B02.

Here is a close-up of the colouring:
