Rose Garden -- for The East Wind

Some images just challenge you more than others.  Such is the case with today's New Release from The East Wind. Today's release is called "Hair Heaven (Rose Garden)".  I chose to emphasize the rose theme:

I have to tell you, after working with all that hair, it reminded my why I keep mine short!  Long hair is TOO much WORK!  But my, she's a beauty, isn't she? If you want to practice curls and shading, cast shadows, etc., this is a great image!  There's lots of skin there for skin tone practice, too. Plus, the big eyes are a bonus.  Super fun!
Hair Heaven (Rose Garden) was colored with Copic markers, then mounted on papers by Close To My Heart. The ribbons are from my stash.  The sentiment is by My Pink Stamper.
Check out The East Wind's Etsy Shop often.  There are new releases every Tuesday and Friday. The East Wind Challenge blog can be found here.  There's always more inspiration and fun in The East Wind Facebook group.
