Up and Away!

I just love this new image from Hambo Stamps!  She's the adorable Balloon Girl - digi!  I coloured her with Copic Markers (hair-E99, E35, E34, YR20; sweater-R27, R24, R22; skin-E21, E00, E000; shading on DP-B95, YG03, Y17, Y21, RV95).  This is a design team project both for the challenge at Hambo Hoedown and at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge!  The challenge at Hambo Hoedown is paper piecing!  I just love paper piecing!  The colours can look so bright!  I used my Copic Markers on the patterned paper to add a little shading.  The challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge is ANYTHING GOES!  I always love an anything goes challenge because it's a chance to really get creative!  I hand stitched embroidery thread around the oval and used my sewing machine for the stitching over the circles.  I coloured two of the girl so that I could cut one out and pop her up a little.  Here's the closeup:
