Cheeks and Nose Tutorial

I should be doing a million other things at the moment but I finished the tutorial I was working on and couldn't resist sharing the step by steps and colors!  I have the full image colored and can't wait to get it on a card so I can share that as well but in the mean time, I hope this proves to be handy.

The image I used is Polka Dot Pals Leilani from Little Miss Muffets Stamps.  It has a typical dot-for-eyes face and I've colored it in using Copic markers.  The colors are listed on the image for each step and shows how to shape and form the cheeks and nose area.  I also have another tutorial for the face that you can see HERE; it uses a different image and different skin colors.

They say pictures are worth a thousand words so I'm not going into detail on each step.  However, with that said, just leave a comment if you have questions on a particular step and I'll respond with more details.  :D  Thanks for dropping by and have a great Wednesday!

SS Deck the Halls

It's been a busy season around here as I'm sure it has been for you too!  However, I've noticed that with all my running around and helping here and there, that I really haven't had a lot of music playing in the background.  The odd thing is, I've had a constant jingle of Christmas music in my head!  Practically everything I've listened to growing up, at school, in the car, at functions and parities and even in the super markets - those songs are played over and over and over again to the point that this year, I don't even need the radio. LOL  Maybe I should find something new to listen to... you know, to mix things up a bit.  But enough of that, here's a project I made coloring up one the new Swings 'n Slides Christmas images this year...

This image is Swings 'n Slides Deck the Halls from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and I thoroughly enjoyed coloring her up!  I can't say much for my card as I don't like the paper nor the layout, but the coloring part was fun.  And check out that red dress... it almost looks velvety!  I might have to experiment with that some more. 

Hope you've enjoyed this little bit of inspiration and have a wonderful day!
P.S.  Now I've started signing Deck the Halls in my head too.  LOL
