Art by Mi Ran Challenge #21 - Charlotte + Bonus card - Elfie Elizabeth

Hi, everyone. Happy Friday. Its time to new challenge start over at Art by Mi Ran Blog! 
Our #21 Challenge theme is Anything Goes as usual but can't enter a digital project and if you use stamp image you must hand colored that. 

Here is my card for this week challenge. 

I colored up Charlotte this time. She is one of digital image and you can find her HERE. 

I colored her with Copic markers and added detail with color pencils. Recently I used color pencil more often rather than markers. The main reason was I have only 37 Copic markers so it was little hard to play with variety colors. Color pencil is good but it take way longer time than markers. So I used both of them and I got happy result than used only one coloring medium. Actually I didn't check how much time I spent for coloring but feels like it took less time than when I used only color pencils and I can play with more variety colors. 

Image Background 
I used few different thing for the image background. 
1)I used Ranger Distress Ink pad for all the around edge. 
2) Cover a sponge with Cheesecloth than put some white paint used like stamp on the colored with Distress Ink pad. (You can add textures)
3) Used old nail polish (I used sparkle one hehe)
4) Do the same thing until you like it, if you want.
