This image came to me in a swap a long time ago and I just ran across it and decided to color it up. Since I didn't stamp it I took a chance by using Copic markers as I didn't know what kind of ink was used for the image. Only the yellows used on the headband and socks bled the image ink but I don't mind.
I used three tones in the hair and two each in the skin, sweater, skirt, socks and shoes. I used a combination of Copics, Spectrum Noir, and Bic Mark-It markers. I also added a cool grey halo around her and drew in some simple lines to provide seating for her.
I picked up the colors in her hair in the houndstooth, the dots in the socks in two black dotted papers, and her clothing in a teal band of patterned paper.
The girl and her background are popped up on foam. The sentiment is stamped onto the teal strip.
