LaLa Land Challenge - Buttons and Bows

This week at LaLa Land Crafts, our challenge is to use Buttons and Bows on our creations. I chose to work with this cutie image, Marci Ballerina. She is one of the older images, but she is just so stinkin cute, I had to use her this week!
I used Prima Sweet Fairy papers for this card. I love the soft blues in this paper stack, so beautiful. I distressed all the papers with Vintage Photo distress inks. I watched one of Suzanne Dean's coloring videos where she colored this image in blues. I loved it so much, I wanted to give it a try. I changed up the exact colors a bit, but tried to stick to her technique and color scheme. Suzanne is so amazingly talented, if you have not seen her work, you should definitely check her out. Thanks so much for the inspiration Suzanne!!!!
I colored Marci with copics.
Skin - E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30
hair - E27, E23, E53, E50
Dress, Headband, & Shoes - B05, B02, B00, B0000, W5
Tights - R00, B00, B0000
I added some turquoise ribbon and white buttons to go along with the challenge. I threaded some blue floss through the button holes to make them stand out a bit more. I also added some Wild Orchid Flowers to the card. I used a white gardenia which I lightly sprayed with wheatfields glimmer mist, turquoise cherry blossoms, pink 15mm roses, and blue Gypsophila stems.
I finished off the inside of the card with more of the pretty design paper and a bow. Very simple!
I hope you will pop on over to LaLa Land Crafts blog and check out what all the design team has in store for your inspiration today.
