Ballerina for my niece

I have to apologize for not keeping up with my blog.  I have been doing this and that and I didn't realize it had been so long since updating it!  I've been taking some online coloring classes at Kit and Clowder, volunteering and other stuff.  I really enjoy my coloring classes and I need to post of of them here.  Today is a project that I made using some of my new copic coloring skills.  

I made this ballerina art piece for my niece's birthday.  She has been in dance and ballet so I wanted to make her something to remember her special day. 


I only used one paper from Paper Temptress store on this piece but I used both watercoloring technique and regular coloring with copics on it.  I love this paper because it has a wonderful texture to it that is great for copics, watercolors and inks as well as many other mediums that you may want to try.  The awesome paper is called Strathmore Bristol Bright White.  

I hope you can see the difference between the watercolor background and the copic coloring of the ballerina.


I took this photo a darker and angled it so that you could see the little gems that I added to this project. 


The stamp I used is a digital stamp by AuroraWings called Flower Ballerina.   I LOVE a lot of the digital stamps on this site!  In fact, I really liked that I could make this image as large as I wanted in order for it to be the right size for this project. 

Thank you for stopping by!  Hope you have a fun and craft-tastic weekend!
