Slumber

Hi everyone! It's Alyce here and today I'm sharing my card using Slumber by The Greeting Farm. I've coupled her up for a few design team posts here... Movies over at Live and Love Crafts and Embossing at The Greeting Farm

The gorgeous chipboard frame in the background here is from Southern Ridge Trading Co and is FRA-486. I've gesso'd it up roughly to show some of the natural colour underneath, and then I've embossed it using my Shabby White frantage.



The copic colours that I used on her are:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E31, E35, E47, E49
Pink Outfit: RV21, R83, RV34, R89
Turquoise Outfit: BG000, BG13, BG49, BG78

I've added a touch of the RV21 to her eyelids aswell so they are a soft pink.
