Pink Cat Studio ~ Feb 17th Digi Release!

Welcome to the next Pink Cat Studio fairytale release! If you're a big fan of colouring, we have a couple of surprises for you today! As you can see, we're celebrating the story of Rapunzel. Lily's long, luscious locks and Billy's steed aside, the wannabe architect in me just loves the tall tower! I'm not going to lie. It took a long time to colour but I had fun and it was extremely satisfying!

I always start with the flesh tones so that means Lily's face and arms, and Billy's hands and nose. I can't help but giggle when I look at this digi of Billy reaching up. Melissa somehow always manages to capture fine details in cute. She's an amazing artist!

Then I coloured in the hair and Lily's braid was so much fun to colour! Next were the flowers in her hair, the one in the bird's mouth and all the flowers in the bushes.

After that, I coloured in Lily's dress, the birds themselves and the bushes but not necessarily in that order.

Then I moved to Billy. Look at those cute hands! LOL And, of course, the fact that you can only see his nose makes it even funnier. ;) I wanted to tie in the colours from the tower image to Billy so I made his cloak purple to match the birds and his puffy shirt and pants to match Lily's golden hair. The pin that holds the feather is red to match the flowers.

Here's a photo from the top of the tower to give the impression of height. The tower itself was the last to be coloured. Rather than using one of the digi sentiments (which are always free), I used an impression plate with text for the storybook feel. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words, right?

Thanks for enjoying today's release with me! As always, there is plenty of inspiration on the Pink Cat Studio Blog or on the DT blogs whose links are on my sidebar. Be sure to swing by again next Thursday for the best Pink Cat Studio digi release ever. ;)
