It’s Miss Rio’s Birthday today! So we gals of Simply B Stamps are having a special Birthday Blog Hop for her, and the adorable new Birthday Princess Rio image from the new Teen Scene Birthday collection. As with the entire set, I love this image, and I made sure it was super colorful for the lovely Miss Rio. Can’t get more colorful than this!!! I just loved coloring this image. Her fab skirt, those big presents, and I always enjoy trying new ways to color glasses. I used watercolor markers for the entire image, except for her hair and skin. They were done with Copics. Oh, and I added a couple of touches with a Ranger white pen (on her glasses) and a wee bit of Sakura’s Stardust pens. Here you can see the way I tinted and highlighted her specs, and some pretty sparklies from the Stardust pens. I always make sure to color the skin and eyes, and then go back with a pale shade, over the glasses to tint them. I used some super happy papers and ribbon. This really reminds me very much of Miss Rio. And I do hope she likes what I’ve made! Here is the entire hop list. Be sure to visit everyone, and leave them some love! SBS Blog Alison (me!)
