Reading Mae

 Today the highlighted image from this week’s release at Some Odd Girl is Reading Mae. This specific image was requested by Annie Rose on our Facebook page and she painted such a vivid picture with her description that the easiest part was drawing it 🙂 I finally used a dark skin color combo that I liked though I skipped far enough down the scale that it streaked a little. I was also trying a different paper for me which messed up my mojo lol. Other than that, I really love how it turned out!

The papers are from MME and I just heart them! Reading Mae is colored with Copics:

Skin: E11, E25, E27, R02, E04
Hair: E71, E74, E77, E49, 100
Clothes: Y21, Y23, Y26, Y28, YR12, YR14, YR18
Grass: YG11, YG13, YG 63, YG67, YG97, Y32
Sky:BG0000, BG10, BG11, B00

I also inked all the edges with Memento Dew Drops and the sentiment is from the Hey Kaylee 4×6 clear stamp set.

    You know just how to get me to sit up and pay attention huh? I’ve been reading all the posts of late and been the very very lazy commenter- good luck and LOTS of orders for CHA- this card is gorgeous- love the tones in the papers and that Mae looks like me (sort of- if I had a really REALLY good hair dresser). 🙂
