I did some browsing on Deviant Art the other day, and I came across these absolutely adorable line art cuties (this one is called "the Earrings") by artist JadeDragonne. I downloaded a few, they printed really well and was an absolute joy to colour!
(Unfortunatly I managed to over saturate the paper a bit along her hair line... One of my pens needed a refill, and then I had to go over the same area more times than I usually do, and the result is... Well, a bit blotchy. It does show more in the pictureas than it does IRL though... How typical is that?!? When you sometimes do have some detail on your card that you relly want to show off, it doesn't photograph well at all, but do something like this and the camera loves it!!! ;)
I kept the card really simple as I wanted the main focus on the image. I coloured her using my beloved Copic pens and for the blues I actually went for the BG-range; BG01, BG05 and BG09. The skin and hair is E-range; E00, E11, E21, E33, E59 and E79.
I have found two challenges where I'd like to enter this card;
Sketch and Stash - I followed their sketch #111, and my new stash is the corner die from Spellbinders; "Fantastic flourish 2" (really tricky to get out of the die without tearing, but gorgeous).
Cupcake inspirations - use kraft, white and blue
I hope you like!
