I Need a Cupcake!

I bought this cute Greeting Farm stamp called Cheeky Rockabilly as soon as it was released last month and haven't been able to color her hair good enough to post a card. That is until I watched one of Amy R's copic tutorial videos. I've seen many other copic tutorials but for some reason Amy's "clicked" for me. If you are new to copics or you need more practice, check out all of her tutorials. They are excellent!

I was really excited when I realized that I had the exact Copic markers she used to color in Anya's hair. I used YR04, YR07 and Y38. I have a tough time deciding where shadows should go, for some reason I am really dense in that way. So I cheated and looked at the picture on the TGF stamp package and I just followed along. I love that her hair almost looks like my 4 yr old's hair!

I propped her up on a cupcake and added some bling. I also added a cute little flower to her hair. 

I was completely unmotivated to stamp yesterday due to some bad news. But I saw Amy's newest sketch and thought I really needed to give it a try. So glad I did, it was a great distraction! I used the sentiment "Cupcakes make everything better" because I thought it went well with the Greeting Farm image and I suppose because I needed a little cheering up myself. So I say if you are feeling down go do what I sugary stuff! Or go shopping. Heehee!
