An Oriental Peek....


Morning Ladies....

Today I'm here with a little sneak peak of what's to come in the very near future from Sugar Nellie at Funky Kits..   this fabulous Oriental Lady will be available very soon!

I wasn't sure how to approach the colouring as I didn't want white to show (apart from in the shine on her hair!)  So I decided the background of the image needed lots of shading..  and I'm happy with the result.  The paper I've used is actually Japanese Origami paper that's been in my stash for years - I knew I needed to keep it for a reason!  There's some gold mirri card there too.  I've tried to match her colouring to the colours of the paper..  and used gold fine pen on the image too... unfortunately the camera is struggling to pick that up.... so you'll have to use your imagination!

Copics: Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair - C1, C3, C5, C9
Shading - E50, E40, E42 and lots of blender pen
Reds - R05, R34, R46, R01
Gold Fine Liner

Now, if you keep your eye on the Sugar Nellie blog.... you'll see these images released in the very near future..  they are a little bit different to what I'm used to..... but wowwww, I LOVE them!! 

Big Hugs to all and Happy Crafting


  1. Had to come over from FB and tell you how much I love it here too!!! Perfection.

  2. Oh this is beautiful and you've matched the papers on the image brilliantly.

  3. Stunning stuff buddy! I can imagine how pretty the papers are, 'coz I too have loads in my stash from my iris folding days. They are SO sumptuous! You did an amazing colouring you always do!

  4. Absolutely brilliant colouring on this gorgeous little gal Christine! I love this image and those pretty papers too.

  6. It's gorgeous Christine and I don't know why but I find black hair so hard to colour. Mind you, I avoided blonds for ages too and quite like them now, so perhaps I should try again seeing yours as inspiration.

  7. This is beautiful Christine! Love the colours and the image is gorgeous, can't wait to get my hands in them! P x

  8. Wowzer Christine! that is one beautiful card, the image is stunning as is your colouring and the background papers are just perfect, and at the end of the day red is only a few drops of white away from pink LOL! hugs, Colette xx

    Thank you for your very kind words recently - they really mean a lot.

  13. This is a wonderful card, the papers go so very well with the image and a classy card to boot.
    Yes I know that is why you picked the papers lol.
    Not a fan of Oriental images if the truth is known but that does not mean I can't appreciate a good card when I see one.
    Have a good weekend.
