Forget-Me-Nots and Rebecca Sinz

Aletha here with an inspiration piece to get your mojo going for the week. My little piece of art was inspired by the artist Rebecca Sinz and her beautiful portraits of some very interesting women. The digi stamp that I used for my card is "Forget-Me-Not." Sweet Pea Stamps also has it available in rubber for all you rubber stamp enthusiasts, Sheet 4 Plate 242.

This was definitely a study in blues. My mood is not blue; it was the “Forget-Me-Nots” that helped me with my deciding color. I guess I could have made them a different color, but blue is out of my comfort zone, so I thought I would give it a try.

Copics used:
Skin: E000, 11, BV000
Hair: E50, 53, 43, 57, 49
Forget-Me-Nots: B60, 63, 66, 69
Background: W0, 1, 2, B60, Blender
