My visit to Sushi Dolls creator Susi's blog, led me to her newest DT call, so I decided to take a shot and here's my entry:
I enjoyed colouring Abby so much, I ended up creating a set of three cards. The girls were coloured using Touch Twin Brush alcohol markers. The same markers were used for skin and hair, but varied so I could give them all slightly different hair and skin tones while keeping a cohesive whole. I'd like to think I succeeded just a little. Ready for some closeups?
Abby was the first to get coloured. She was inspired by my new Coral Sunset nail polish which I purchased last weekend. (Random, I know.) I just looked down at my hands and thought, "wouldn't this colour make a tasty cupcake?" So I experimented with a few colour combos and ended up with this beauty.

stamps. Then I remembered that YouTube ad where the presenter shows you how to decorate a cake and add a doll to the center, so I made my second Abby pink like that Barbie doll cake.

Abby Cupcake number three was inspired by the paper pad I decided to use: MME Happy Day. I just loved the combination of colours in the papers and chose to work with the blue because I knew they would all complement each other.

I hope you like these cards half as much as I enjoyed creating them.
Hugs and Kisses.
