Snow White

First off, let me apologize for taking so long to publish a new post!!  Life has been busy in this house!!!!  I promise to have at least one post each week of past and current projects!!

I love my Cricut!!  Especially the Disney characters and the Paper Dolls series.  I got tired of trying to find the perfect flesh tone for these cuts in cardstock and thought that I could do a better job myself with my Copic markers.  I believe I found some success!!  and had fun in the process!!!

I have a friend who took her little girl to Disney World in Orlando, Florida.  I thought that I would make her a few layouts for her photos and keepsakes.  I have only made a few layouts, but have many more planned out.  

I started with Snow White.  At first, I just did the flesh tones with the markers and used colored card stock for the rest of the cuts.  Here is the first lay out that I made:

While I liked the way it looked, I have never been happy with the flat look of plain colored  cardstock.  I wanted depth and texture!!!  So, I took my copics and did this:

Even the colored cardstock looks better with some shading added to it!!!
