A Little Ballerina

I hope everyone in the States is having a very happy 4th of July!  It's nice to have hubby home for a day smack in the middle of the week. Josh (our 3 yr. old grandson) is my husbands shadow and it is always a joy to watch the two of them together. But, since everyone in the house has that horrible sore throat/cold virus that has been going around it may be a day of naps and soup!
My card is no way summer or 4th of July related. But I am sure you may have had your fill of those by now : ) Here's my little Ballerina created for Whimsy Stamps:
You may recognize her from my mixed media video. That link will take you to part 1 but she doesn't really show up until part 2 .   
If you can bare the photo montage here's what she looked throughout the coloring process:

I only use the white gel pen to put the glints back in her eyes.

Amazing what you don't notice until the pic's are all edited and uploaded! Those first two colors are R35 and R37.
Final close up completed on background :
And here's a close up of that adorable sentiment from Raindrop Echo for Whimsy Stamps

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
