Time for another great sketch from My Favorite Things! I have soooooo many PI's that I have yet to ink up (thanks KJ, hehe;) and this week I am using Pure Innocence Ice Princess. I paper-peiced her dress, curling the bottom of the skirt a bit to add some dimension. Little fact about me: I used to LOVE figure skating when I was a girl. I wasn't a medal winning skater by any means...I think I was more interested in the costumes! We couldn't really afford to have them made or go to the city to buy the fancy ones, but I did have a neighbour who was about 5 years older than me (Hi Tonya!) from whom my mom bought second hand dresses for me:) I honestly never felt prettier than when I was in my skating dress, beige tights and white figure skates! Of course there couldn't be an outfit that would make me feel less pretty than that same one today;) lol!
I coloured her with colics, shading the pieced dress and adding stickles and chunky glitter to the waist and cuffs, and little
pearls as buttons. Her tights were coated in clear spica pen and skates were glazed over with a sakura glaze pen. I did some dry embossing and added machine stitching to the panels.
I wanted to finish the inside on this one. Simple layering, sponging, stitching and stamping made a quick finish:)
