Sweet November is taking a small break this month but no worries, we'll be back with new cuties from Sweet November Land in May! This means I'll be jumping right into the CC Designs previews today. :)
The Swiss Pixies are in the spotlight and this new girlie is called Rainy Day Birgitta. She has ducked beneath a leaf to avoid being drenched by a passing spring rain. Now the sun has returned to dry everything off and provide Birgitta with a glorious rainbow to brighten the rest of her day.
I decided to focus more on a color palette that reflected the rain aspect of this new image and worked with a lot of blue. To be honest, blue is probably one of my least go-to colors so this was quite the change of pace for me. I also had fun playing around with that leaf and trying to convey the green tone that it would cast down on her as the light shined through it. To do that I actually chose to use the E80's Copic family for her hair because those browns naturally have a greenish undertone to them. Then I really reinforced it by adding some of the YG03 to the highlights in her hair as well. I also pulled the YG21 onto her skin a bit but my photo isn't really picking that up unfortunately.
The sentiment is also a new one from AmyR that is part of the soon to be released So Wordy set. Speaking of releases... all of the new stamps will be available Friday, April 6th in the All That Scraps store. Until then, you will want to be sure and check out the ATS blog each day for plenty of chances to win!
Later gators! :)
