Yesterday was not quite as nice out as I had hoped it would be. The wind was blowing off the mountains bringing with it the cold from the snow that's still up there. So I didn't get as much done out there as I had hoped but the extra time did let me set up my Flip and get a coloring video made. :)
After posting the grass video a couple weeks ago, I received a few requests to share how I did the blonde hair that I used on Easter Anya. This seemed the perfect time to do it so I just had to find a good stamp to showcase the combo on. The Greeting Farm stamps have nice, big heads of hair so I went back to my TGF binder to pick a likely candidate. Cheeky Chat caught my eye and since she hadn't been inked up yet this was a two-fer. I did alter her a bit by wiping away her winking eye and tracing in a new eye in its place. The color combo is a pretty ash blonde and you can find the video here or over on Color Me Copic.
I paired her up with this new-ish paper pad from Cosmo Cricket called 2wenty Thr3e and I'll admit that at first, I wasn't 100% sold on this one. The color combos seemed kinda clashy to me and a few of the prints are a little much to handle in anything other than small doses. But, I really like the retro mod styling and it seemed to have a very swingin' 60's type of vibe going on. To me this matched well with Chat's look. And the mustard/pink/orange/grey combo of it is even starting to grow on me. ;)
Alrighty friends, have fun and stay out of trouble. I'll chat at'cha later!
