QKD New Release Tuesday Hop!!!! Mmmm...Pink Candy Anyone???

Hello and HAPPY NEW RELEASE TUESDAY!!! If you've arrived here from the WIS blog then you are on the right track and if not PLEASE start HERE so you get to see all of the Tuesday gorgeousness!!

Today I had the great pleasure of working with a brandy new Maigan-Lynn Creation - Pink Candy Hair!! Isn't she simply FABU!! I LOVEEEEEEEEE HER!! What am I saying, I love EVERYTHING Maigan does but this gal rocks!!
As you can see, I followed the sketch about 96% ;) I used a base of PTI's Enchanted Evening as my base.
I hadn't yet decided what my color scheme was going to be and then I found this adorable under the sea scrap in my drawer and I knew that was it! I cut them into 4 equal sized pieces and I then used some textured SU! cardstock from an old Simply Scrappin' kit as the backing for each piece. I trimmed the orange to fit each piece of under the sea paper and then stitched each one down with a zig zag trim in blue thread.
I adhered the 4 pieces down. I then set to coloring my lady! As you can see, I used a WIDE variety of markers. Copics, Prismacolor and Pantone. I set her on a green scrap of cardstock (from the same SU! kit) and stitched her down. In lieu of the 4 corner dots I chose to add rhinestones to mimic a sort of "hollywood mirror" effect. I think her pose is very indicative of that! Very "senior photo-esque"!!!
Again, not to veer TOO much from the sketch, I added "bubbles" out of metal beads for her fishy friends in each of the 4 corners.
Lastly, I added some sheer, white ribbon tied in a fluffy bow with white linen thread from The Paper Source as an added embelli. I scrunched up the width of the ribbon some so as to not interfere with the main image.

I hope you enjoy all of the newness you see today!! Thanks as always for hop, hop, hopping!!

Now, off you go to the amazing Anita to see what gorgeousness she's got for us today!!!
