What a beautiful image from Isabella´s Sketchbook! This is Elizabeth Ballerina colored with colored pencils and blended with gamsol.
I used all scraps to make this tiny card (it´s 2x4 in!), even the embroidery floss I used to stitch the glass beads is a scrap. The green border I took it from an old card, it was completely off there, I think it looks much more better here... Recycle, reduce, reuse!!
I´m joining the following challenges:
Isabella´s Sketchbook challenge blog: scraps!
Digital Tuesday challenge: butterflies and/or lace
Cupcake Craft challenge blog: lace
Creative Inspirations challenge blog: recycle

What a lot of fun I´m having these days... thanks everybody for the wonderful challenges!!

Us colored pencil girls need to stick together! I love your work here . the coloring is perfect. I've been using copics for my skin tones but you've done very well with the pencils. I need to steal your technique!
