Postitively Perfect Princess and a Winner!

Hello all! Today's card is from the sneak of the Simply Sassy release coming this weekend. I really love this set and I think you will too. Meet....


Isn't she a beauty!! Guess the card says' it all lol. I really struggled making this one...this was actually my third attempt...terrible right, you ever have days like that?? Of  course I wanted to color her pink at first, but then I noticed that was the color my teammate used for her the day before and so I wanted it to be at least a little different. I decided then to use distress inks(attempt#3) and go with blue. I had completely different papers in mind plus a wasn't working out. Try #2 the Sugar bowl sketch...loved the papers...I cannot zig-zag stitch and it took me quite some time to come to that conclusion...I have determination issues sometimes. This is number 3 which also didn't go perfectly as I first put the base paper on upside down....yes, it made a difference. So there you have it and now I'm not so sure about those flowers, but i don't hate them either, so I guess they stay.

At any rate, here's a closer view of little miss Cinderella...

 ...and I think you can tell my coloring is improving a bit. I've decided I think it's a bit easier to color with reinkers and white tipped brushed as I can tell much better how much ink is on there and it's really cutting down on the over saturation. Since I am learning here and maybe some of you are too I will try and remember to share with you things I find helpful.

Here are the colors I used:
Skin: tattered rose(re-inker), vintage photo(pad)
cheeks&lips worn lipstick (re-inker)
Dress: tumbled glass(pad), pumice stone(re-inker) for shadows
Hair: scattered straw(re-inker), brushed corduroy (re-inker)
Eyes: tumbled glass(pad), faded jeans(pad)
