Prom Queen

This week I am using the Prom Queen digi from  Stamp N Doodle and I used a Monochromatic colour scheme. I wanted to add texture to my layers so I used my embossing folders. I used a shaving brush to add colour to my last embossed layers and after I coloured my image with my Copics I added some more ink by masking my girl and inking with Adirondack Ink the edging again with my shaving brush. Using the shaving brush adds tiny dots of ink and the more times you hit the paper the deeper the colour gets. I also did this effect on my flower and it ended up a nice rich colour so that all colours matched for my monochromatic colour scheme. I already has these pearls in my stash which turned out great and to add something extra I  used Dimensional Magic on my heart and the word kiss and also tiny smidge to my flower to have a slight gloss to it. I only used half of my Prom Queen image to instill a sense of thinking about the moment!
