It's a bit like buses ......

Can't be bothered making a card for ages and then two come along at once lol!

After making the Passion for Promarkers challenge card with the Penny Black image I decided I NEEDED to use the Moss Green on this lovely Willow stamp from Whiff of Joy so I included a smattering of Poppy on the image as well and I'm really pleased with the result. It's the first time I've tried shading blue jeans and I'm quite happy with the way they've turned out.

I used
layers of Moss Green for Willow's jumper,
Poppy for the mug of hot chocolate, her socks and the decorations on her jeans
Royal Blue with Indigo Blue shading for her jeans
Ivory with Blush shading for the skin tones
and Gold, Yellow and Canary for her hair
