On Tiptoe in black and peach (again)

OMW I am loving this Prima pad and the peach/black colour combo and seeing as the pad had not been put away yet I decided to pull more papers out and make another card with the same colours as yesterday’s card.  I think even fairies look good with black.  It’s been ages since I coloured up On Tiptoe from LOTV.

I thought that I would attempt the colouring with distress markers and ink instead of the copics used yesterday.  It was a bit of a palaver to get the peach colour just so but with a bit of experimenting I got to a shade I was happy with.

Colours used
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo (she was going to be blonde but was too wishy washy)
Skin: Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo and a touch of aged mahogany mixed with the tattered rose for the cheeks
Dress:  I mixed Spun Sugar, Dried Marigold and Worn Lipstick together adding more colour as necessary till I was happy with the shade (I used the reinkers for this)
Wings: Pumice Stone
Foilage/grass:  (colours laid down in this order) Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Walnut Stain, Scattered Straw, Black, Peeled Paint.  (leaves are just peeled paint and forest moss)
Shading around fairy: Tumbled Glass
