Vintage Card - Sepia Colors

I found this beautiful free digi by Anthony Vanardsdale and fell in love with it! I couldn't wait to color her.  The picture doesn't show the details very well on her face, but I was able to make nice shadows on her cheekbones and face area.  


Here she is.  She is just stunning I think.  The artist who drew her really capture her very well.  I am not too crazy about the flowers, but its the closest I could find to match.

Copics Used:

Face: E50, E51, E53, YR24
Hair: E31, E33, E37
Hat and clothes: YR27, YR24, YR23, YR21, YR20, E50, E51, E53

Seductive Barb

I dedicated some time today to do some coloring and chose Seductive Barb from Make It Crafty to work on today.  I am not a fan of the orange color but I love the end result on this card.  I will be adding a sentiment later.

I also entered this card on the Kit and Clowder February Challenge!

I've been busy crafting....
 
Although I have been busy crafting, these cards have taking me a few weeks to complete.  I have to find the right time of the day to color or else, I can't do it!
 

I really love this card.  It looks even better in person.  :)  Love the green with the browns and blue.
