SBS DT: Steampunk & TV Inspiration

Hi Everyone!

I created a card that I hadn't shown in the blog world. This character was drawn by Abigail Larson for Simply Betty Stamps. Abigail is an amazing artist but I must admit I have been intimidated to color her images sometimes.... Once I get going with the coloring it turns out okay but always afraid of what the artist may think of how the characters are portrayed...

In this case I used Lavinia Outing and you can find her here

I know... it may be scary for some people or not... but I was intrigued by the show Sleepy Hollow and one of the characters sticks out with her bright red hair, her very delicate and feminine ways... most of the time LOL her real name is Katia Winter but her characters name is Katrina Crane and she's a witch. ha!

I tried to color her dress with a sheer lacy top to show the chest. heehee
I used Copic markers to color her
Then I remembered I had The Olde Curiosity Shoppe 8x8 pad from Graphic 45 
and the crazy part is that it all seems to match with the image I colored. :D 
Isn't that cool when you color something and you find papers to match from your stash??? LOL
Yes I'm one of those crazy people that colors first and then goes nuts trying to find 
something to match later...

Okay... well i made her eyes brown instead of green because there was another person
who inspirited me for this coloring. 

Hope you like her. I took my sweet time on this image because I wanted to do her justice.... 

Thank you for visiting.
