Holly Rose from Make It Crafty


Hello, Rhea here and today I am bringing Holly Rose from Make It Crafty.  She is so versatile.  Here I have chosen to design her into a birthday card for my dearest friend, my mom.


I wanted to give her worn jeans so I used B93, B95 and B97.  When done I went over the dark area with W6 and the light areas with W4.  Then with my blender pen I scrubbed a few worn areas at the thighs and seat and don't forget her knees.

Her top is done with the R81, 83 and 85 and with a white prisma pencil to help brighten the highlights.

Her hair is done with E35, YR27, RY21.  I used a dark brown prisma pencil and the lightest yellow prisma pencil to deepen shadow and highlights.

Skin is E 50, 51 and 53 with a cash shadow of BV20

For the finishing touches I used Chipboard elements swirls and painted them white with craft paint.  For the flowers I punched very small circles and with quilling tools worked them into itty bitty flowers.  The leaves were punched...yes, I have a punch that does itty bitty leaves.  The pearls and flower centers are Pearl Pen you can also use Liquid Pearls.

Here is your shopping list :)

So happy you stopped by today.  Happy coloring, Rhea
