helloooo.. I bet you were wondering if I would do a big haired girl? well I have and here she is..
Meet Miss. Noelle.
I started with heavy smoothy card and a quick sketch.
I began to work on the face using Chalk, Rose, Irish Cream, Pumpkin Soup and Haystack.
Adding, refining, smoothing..
Next I gave her a red hairband using London Bus and Blood Orange.
and the start of some green hair using Tinned Peas.
Then I went back to her face to finish the eyes..
The hair is going to be all holly, so I started added that into the background using EDY04. I also blocked in the background using Smurf and China..
I added text from EDY03 and then snowflakes from EDY04.
Next I added the reindeer from EDY16. I used WOW embossing powder in Vintage Peacock directly onto the card to stamp the antlers. Then I painted some card with Captain Peacock and Metalic Glaze and embossed the rest of the body, this was cut out and glued in place on the hand.
See how shiny..
I stamped the baubles from EDY16 and coloured them using Caran d'Ache Fibralo pens. I also added liquid pearls and stickles. The tops of these are the perfect sixe to be punched out using the small hole on a cropadile.
Here is the rest of the hair filled in with Tinned Peas.
and the rest of the background stamped with leaves. You can just see the small trees from EDY16 resting on top of the hairband. I shaded in between all the holly using Holly Fresco. and lightened up some of the leaves using Hey Pesto.
More holly leaves, some stamped in black archival then coated with gloss glaze, some embossed with WOW Earth Olive and some embossed with WOW Evergreen.
Here they are in place... who remembers wearing Deely Boppers in the 80's???
I added some white paint onto the small trees as snow, and the baubles are glued in place.
her arm looked bare, so I added the hanging bow from EDY04.. not sure if it is a tattoo or a bracelet.
More smoothy painted with London Bus and the poinsettia flower stamped. The buttons were stamped onto Captain Peacock.. i love the contrast.
and finally some stars stamped with WOW Gold Pearl. These were cut out and dotted around the hair.
The flowers and loose leaves were all glued in place and the title added at the bottom. I added some shading to the flowers using Pitt pens, some shadows with a stabilo pencil and some more dots of liquid pearls and stickles here and there.
I love the dimension and movement created with the loose leaves.
Hope you enjoyed that.
