Saffron


Hello everyone. I hope your holiday break is going wonderfully! We are having a special "free image" challenge at the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog. Download your free image of Saffron and join along.

I printed Saffron onto beige cardstock and coloured her with Prismacolour pencils. I picked up a few more colours to try an ethnic skin tone. I used the same beige cardstock and chocolate chip with Jillybean Soup - Dutch Mustard DP. I added snow effect on the muff and a Tim Holtz pin on the ribbon.

Here is a list of the prismacolours I used on the skin tone, from darkest to lightest:
PC 946 - Dark Brown
PC 945 Sienna Brown
PC 943 Burnt Ochre
PC 942 Yellow Ochre and peach to tone down the yellow (not positive if I used PC 939 Peach or PC 927 Light Peach)

I just kept blending until the skin tones looked correct.

Check out the Little Miss Muffet DT - they rock!

Amazing!! I love this - the colors, the coloring, the paper piecing, layout and everything. ;D Do you happen to remember which colors you used for the skin? I had a horrible time trying to get my pencils to work this week. LOL Anyway, I love the way you've done yours and was going to take away a few tips. :D Thanks so much for participating this week with Saffron - you're awesome! *Hugs
