iCopic : Nora Blowing Kisses

iCopic Lover  has a great challenge going on now.   Challenge 68 theme is "Heart Challenge!  
Use a heart on your Copic creation. You can color in a heart stamp, draw a heart, or use a heart element. As long as you use Copics and a heart, you are good to go!


This week's prize is a special $15 gift voucher!

I created this  inspiration project for this week's challenge.  I colored in some hearts on this Nora Blowing Kisses by Whiff Of Joy.   Isn't this just the cutest little thing?  

Copics used:
Skin Tones:  R0000, R000, R01, E93  A touch of Y0000 to add warmth from sunshine.  
Blouse:  V000, V01, V12
Skirt: T0000, R20, R22, R24
Shoes: C1, C3, C5, C7
Hair: E31, E35, E37

Tip of the Day:  In the Copic Designer Certification class I took with Marianne Walker, she suggested adding a very light yellow to the highlight to add a bit of sunny warmth to the skin tone of the face.   I added Y0000.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
I hope you are having a good week!   The weekend is coming!    Thank you for stopping by.  I will be posing a Color Me Creative challenge  tomorrow.  Please stop by!

    She's precious!! I believe this is the very first blowing hearts image I've seen out of all the Valentine cards and I just LOVE it!!
    The little card within a card is a super great idea too.
    OHHHHHH boy, will I be using that yellow hint tip on my next coloring. Makes sense though with the light hitting the face. :)
