LMMS: Vega Rise Above and Shine

Today I'm showcasing a card I using Polka Dot Pals Vega

I used Kraft Cardstock and to start off I used
Copic markers. To brighten up the eyes, background,
star and skin I used a little Prismacolor over the Copic marker.
(Not a good idea to do it the other way around
if you want to keep a good Copic brush any. I Actually purchased a Prismacolor
colorless marker to blend/melt away Prismacolor Pencil wax but I hardly ever use it.)

It's a little hard to see but I added a little bit of Sakura GellyRoll Metallic Gold
to line the inside of the star that PDP Vega is holding. I then added some
Glossy Accents to the star to give it a 
little shine and emphasis to whomever looks at the card in person.
Another part I like to focus on especially with the 
Polka Dot Pal images is the big beautiful eyes. 
I used a White Prismacolor to color the sclera (aka whites of the eyes) 
then go in with the Black Prismacolor pencil to line and highlight
the eyes, eyelashes, and eyebrows. I used a little bit of PC 947
and a little more with PC 945 to define the her facial features such as:
jaw line, chin, sides of cheekbones, hairline, temples, eye crease, sides of nose
and a little for shadowing the ears, hands and legs.
When I was done coloring her face I went in with
Uni-Ball Signo Angelic White pen for the eyelights.

For the background I used Distress Inks:
Evergreen Bough and Black Soot
then I used a PC1011 PDP Vega to illuminate the area around her.

Then I added little stars all around with my Uni-Ball Signo Angelic White pen
when I was done just for a little more interest.

The clear stamp sentiment and square die is from My Creative Time.
The scalloped die is from Craftin' Dessert Divas
