Card: Hello Cowgirl

This is another of the "lost" images that I found already coloured. I think I did her around Christmas last year. I bring my box of images to my parents' house for a little escape during the visit. Not that they're not great, but sometimes you just need time to yourself; or I wake up super early in the morning and no one is up yet. Colouring is quiet. For the card I was surprised at how well the colours of the Dear Lizzy paper worked out. This was truly just me grabbing bits of paper and seeing if they worked. I had no direction whatsoever when making this. But I think it turned out okay. Matting seems to make everything better. Trying to conserve enamel dots, I went with rhinestones instead.
Anyhow, this was done on the crappy paper and so her skin was blotchy and her hair was bad so I had to touch her up with pencils. You can still see the mess the Copics left underneath, but it's more visually interesting now with the pencils in there. I didn't notice until afterwards that there's cat fur on the image either. Ooops! Cats!
