Card for Ann

I made this card for my sister-in-law, Ann.  She is into Renaissance clothing.  Although, this is not on the fancier end of the clothing.  The image is Cameo 8 available at Fitztown.  I am trying to work on skin and hair.  I actually got the hair to where I am somewhat satisfied.  I am learning, with lots of practice, how to highlight curly hair.  I'm still working on skin tones.  I tried a new combo this time.  Tom, my husband/art critic thought my skin tones were a bit too orange using the E00, E02 combo that I have been using for years.  I must admit I like this look better.

I colored her with Copics.  The flowers and embellishments are from Live and Love Crafts. The beautiful ribbon is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  That's been in my stash for about three years.The butterfly die is from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Copics:  E00, E30, E31, E50, E51, E96, E97, E99, 
C00, C0, C1, C2, 
R00, R01, R11, R12, R20, R21, R22,
