Milk Can Savings Box
Spring eludes us today, at least part of it. Temperature is quite nice, but the sun is somewhat elusive today :o(
Anyway I am here to offer you spring like I love it. I used my absolute favourite from the new collection and used my recently discovered new favourite colors on her. Using the colors I used on her dress is a bit tricky, since they won't blend easily or even with some work, but I think I have it down now. The dress was done using only one color on the paper directly and the other two for the shading via tip to tip technique. Everything else turned out to be a complete failure.
I am in love with this savings box. On the pictures I have seen two parts where the glue shows, I'll do some corrective work there, but aside from that it is as colorful, flowery and tacky as I imagined it. Girly heaven if you ask me.
