Butterfly Princess

Hi everyone! Yeeea it's time for another challenge over at Saturated Canary this week and I had SO much fun with this one! The theme is base it on a movie :) I based my card off Lord of the Rings, and coloured up Butterfly Princess using Zoe's no lines technique so that she would look quite soft and ethereal like an elf. I had this idea for my dad for christmas as we got him hobbit tickets but never got around to it.

I love this quote and think it fits perfectly :) I just printed it out on some normal paper, distressed it and rolled it up. I used copics to colour her up...here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: E50, E53, E43, E57
Dress: BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29
Hope you enjoy this challenge and play along this week! I will have a little treat for you tomorrow so be sure to stop by! Thanks so much xx :)

Totally stunning sweetie, I dont normally like the no-lines technique as I think the images look weird, espec maggies, although tbh Zoe does an awesome job. However you have totally rocked this sweetie she looks fantastic.
