Dewdrop - Raincatcher -- Showcase at Coloring Without Boundaries

It's time for another showcase of the Coloring Without Boundaries Design Team.  Of course, we are showcasing Lacy Sunshine images by the uber talented Heather Valentin. 

For today's showcase, I'm featuring Dewdrop - Raincatcher...

Here's how I colored Dewdrop - Raincatcher.  

I always start with skin.  For this image, I wanted everything to be soft and spring-like so I went with real light skin tones.  I used:
E000, E01, E11, E04, R20 (for blush), BV000, BV01.  The BV's are for cast shadows.
Eyes -- BG000, B12, B14

Hair -- I chose blonde for the same reason I went with light skin tones.  I wanted very light spring like colors for this image.  Hair colors are:
Y00, Y21, Y13

Next, the big flower that's doubling as her umbrella.  Colors used are:
Petals -- RV10, RV52, RV63, RV55, RV66

Here, I add the center, dewdrops, and the remaining flowers...
Flower center colors -- Y00, Y06
Dewdrops -- BG10, BG01

All that's left now is the stems and leaves, and her dress.
Stems and leaves -- YG03, G40, G43, G46

Dress -- BG11, BG32, BG45, BG49
Flowers on dress -- RV52, RV55

Here's Dewdrop - Raincatcher, made into a card...

I used a cutting file from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons and cut it out on my Silhouette Cameo.  The papers are from Echo Park Springtime.  The crinkle ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM. I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the image. 

I hope you check out the showcase at Coloring Without Boundaries.  There's also a challenge, with a number of categories. Projects don't need to be finished.  They can just be colored pieces, if you prefer to enter that way.  Check out the Coloring Without Boundaries Facebook Group, too, and the Lacy Sunshine Color N Craft Community
