Odella and her bag

I am back today with a gorgeous stamp from Polkadoodles called Odella With Bag. I just love the Odella range because they are just a little bit quirky and not too cutesie (well you can't do cute all the time can you?

I decided to colour her in with pencils this tie, and I have gone with the fabulous Spectrum Noir pencils and blending fluid / paper stumps.

I find this to be a really forgiving method of colouring as that blending solution softens and mixes, getting rid of a whole lot of 'oops' moments!
And here is Odella's close up. I am quite prod of her as I actually put some lowlights in to give some structure to her nose.......which is normally something that I would run a mile from!

I also put my recycling hat on as both the backing paper and the embossed paper were scraps that I had left over from other projects!

I hope you like little miss Odella, and thanks for popping by today.
