I made this card for my friend and his wife who are moving home (and taking their desk - lol) and also starting new jobs. I really wish them lots of luck and happiness in their new life.
I followed the sketch over on The Sugar Bowl and I'm sure I'm not the only one who thought this cried out for 3 little adorables ;) There are 2 reasons I haven't coloured them in completely - one is that I think these look lovely even with just a subtle amount of feathery colour, and the other is that I have finally used up all my 'Ivory' pro-marker, and so until I get another one, I might struggle to colour flesh! :D lol.
I did use Lilac, Lavender, Cool Grey 2 and Forest Green Promarkers though for my subtle effects as well as the blender pen.
I think I kept this quite simple (for me) and just added little highlights to the hair and ribbons. I threaded tiny dragonfly charms on the stems of the roses and twisted them to hold in place.
Its quite a little softer looking IRL, (and less ghostly) but I had lost the natural daylight, so this is taken with a flash and a daylight bulb.
