Anya, the Unicorn Princess!
Hi everyone! I had this idea that it would be really sweet if Princess Anya (from The Greeting Farm) could ride the Unicorn (also from The Greeting Farm, in digital form). So I thought I'd make her standing next to the Unicorn, getting ready to ride. The problem was that with the Unicorn printed to a size where he didn't take up the whole card front Anya just looked way too big to be riding on him. So I placed Anya on top of the frame, and I like to think that she's looking across the field, and getting ready for her first Unicorn ride!
I've been asked a few times to list the marker colors I used and so I will try to keep track of them from now on. I don't want to scare anybody off who is thinking of starting to use Copics, because I have seen many beautiful cards made using just a few markers. I am not much of a "less is more" girl, though, when it comes to coloring! So, for this card I used :
Skin: E00, E02, RV21 (Cheeks)
Hair: (Cream Prisma Marker - I do not yet have a pale yellow/almost off white Copic that would be good for the lightest part of the hair here. I tried Y000 at first but it had a slight green cast. If anyone has a suggestion, I'd love to hear it), plus Y21, Y26, Y28.
Blues (on Unicorn and Dress): B000, B01, B02
Pinks:RV21, RV23, RV25
And I forgot to mark down what oranges I used on the flowers, sorry.
The DP is Little Yellow Bicycle. The flowers are Prima, with Swarovski crystals (from the jewelry craft section) glued in the centers. The pink flower was white and I used my Copics to make it match. And, finally, there is LOTS of Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU) on the Unicorn, crown and wand!
I hope everyone has a great weekend, filled with whatever makes them happiest!
