It's review preview day over on the ATS blog and I've got a second take on April's adorable addition to the Swiss Pixies... Rainy Day Birgitta. I really couldn't wait to give Birgitta a lighter and brighter look this go round. :)
I know that I already used some of these Chloe's Closet papers yesterday but considering that great blue in them I thought it would be a nice choice for this stamp as well. But I didn't want it to be as heavy in the blues as my last Rainy Day Birgitta card so that's where the bit of orange and yellow really cheer this one up. I picture this version of her to be at the end of the storm with the sky finally clearing and the sunshine peeking out from behind the clouds. I still added a bit of a green cast to her hair and body with the YG00 but it is a much more subtle look compared to Birgitta with the E80s hair. I also altered her just a bit by drawing in a couple lines to give her dress a separate bodice and sleeves so that I could give her outfit more color too.
Ok, so there is even more review preview fun and inspiration from the rest of the ATS team on the All That Scraps blog so be sure to hop on over there too! And all of the new April stamps can be found in the ATS store here!
