CPS Day 10...Glittery silly Dilly

CPS Sketch #26
I'm having so much fun making my way through all 15 sketches of Card Positioning Systems' 5th Anniversary Celebration! (All my cards for the CPS Celebration are archived here.)

I'm so tickled (and honored!) to have made the Top 3 for the Dilly Beans Freaked Challenge. Megan's images are so much fun to create with, plus my husband is also a big fan!

Thank you all for the awesome inspiration!
CPS 5th Anniversary Day 10: Sketch #26 (top right)
Dilly Beans Challenge: Love is in the Air

I think it's pretty obvious that I had a blast coloring this image (Framed Zombie Hearts 4 by Dilly Beans) with my Copics! I added the stripes on the hair myself -- my first time being so bold! I had originally colored the face in yellows, but it felt too washed-out, so I went over it with Celadon Green (YG25). I used the colorless blender added shading to the neck. I used the Copic "dotting" method on the backgrounds and the wings. The hearts are actually cut out & popped up with adhesive foam.

The heart images on the right side are from Dilly Beans' Girlie Skellies pre-colored digi collage sheet. I made the wings from a coated glitter paper, using an angel-wings chipboard template from Maya Road.

The wavy paper in the middle looks so much cooler in person; it's Prismatic paper from Colorbök. Can You Digi It?'s Stock Spotlight Saturday inspired me to use this lovely blue glitter paper that Mom just sent me. Thank you! (Be sure to check out their DT's awesome projects and tips on coloring glitter paper with Copics.)

For the sentiment I used the "Rock and Roll" stamping technique I learned from Sami at SP&Company Stamps. I drew the cloud in pencil and then traced & embellished it with my black Copic (I really want a multiliner, but I can't decide which width I want to start with...any suggestions?).
