Elven Princess

I finally got round to buying some Aurora Wings digis last week and printed them out at work the other day ready to use this weekend. I love the images, but am quite nervous about colouring them as they are just so detailed. But in my mission to improve my colouring I jumped in with both feet and went ahead and used one today and I actually don't think it turned out too badly.

This card is for Aurora Wings Challenge #2 Monochromatic, Deep Ocean's Challenge #76 to use stitching either real or faux and for Papertake Weekly's Challenge to use white and one other colour. I cheated a bit on that one as I used 2 shades of pink - is that allowed?

And here she is. I deliberately kept her fairly small and am glad I did as the flowers took forever to colour in! The hair isn't quite the shade of pink I wanted, but I think it's ok for an elf!
