Orange - It's not just for Halloween!!

I love this week's 'orange' challenge over at The Pink Elephant. It's a colour I don't often use but it can look really stunning... just check out the DT work over there, to see what I mean.
I took ages colouring this image, it's so gorjuss that I wanted it to be perfect, plus I knew that my new close up lens would show every error.
It's the first time I have tried to colour black hair too, so even though it's not perfect I am very happy with it.

I made this into a 'thinking of you card' because to me, the image has a slight melancholy feel to her. Does anyone else get that?

Recipe
  • Stamp - Sugar Nellie, Gorjuss 'Sent with Love' coloured with Copics
  • Text Stamp - Personal Impressions
  • DP - My Mind's Eye, Pretty Please
  • My Stash - Buttons, Orange Embroidery Thread, Eyelets
