well I know I've been quiet, but I have loads of bits in the process so to speak, and here's one thats just finished drying. I deliberately left it long enough, as I have a nasty habit of sticking my finger in Glaze that isnt quite dry and leaving my finger print all over things..............
So for Inspiration you need to go Here and to get Eleanor you need to go here.
So to my version of Eleanor: My Eleanor is a dark haired girl, with a Peaches and Cream complexion, and thats always my starting point. But this is a very Fairy Tale image, even without Pickles, so little girl Pink was the chosen colour. Spectrum Noir PL1 BP2 and BP 6. Her Hair is GB 8 GB 10 and EB 5.
Okay so then I had to remove Pickles, and a tip with your Speccies if your finding that they blob: stand the on their chisel tip for a couple of days to allow the ink to drain to the chisel tip end. Normally you wouldnt do that with an alcohol pen, but as these are a bit generously filled you just need to shift the ink out the way a bit, and thats direct from Crafters Companion, coz I was getting frustrated with Poor Pickles!
Right so Back to Eleanor then..... Hmmn without Pickles what do I do, aha!
Birthday.......................... Cake! so rummage through my papers, you know the stack of papers you have lying around, that came either as freebies or you printed off too many? So in there was this Cake Paper! and the colour matched!
But I just knew that I wouldnt have any base card in just that shade! But I did have some white card and the Speccies! so white became Pink, and was matted and layered, add some glaze to her Glasses lens, and some glitter to her dress, print off a sentiment, and then die cut it, and jobs a gud 'un as they say.
so dont forget to grab Eleanor for yourself, from here and remember that Lacy Sunshine ONLY is the ONLY authorised seller of Heather Valentin Digi's, xxx
