Maiden With Long Golden Hair

Yesterday my mom and I decided to spend the day in town so I didn't get a post done as I had planned.  But we had a great time with lunch, shopping, a photo shoot for my other blog, dinner at our favorite place listening to our friend Steve sing (he is great!) and watching a very talented young man make his Branson singing debut.  Good Times!  

So today I'm catching up on laundry, light housekeeping, email, and posting.  The card I have today features a gorgeous image from Make it Crafty.  Meet "Maiden with Long Golden Hair". I love coloring long hair and the luxurious folds of a beautiful gown, though I must admit this one was a challenge!

The background paper and the brads in the flowers are from the Basic Grey "Marrakech" stack from a few years ago.  I'd nearly forgotten about this colorful collection.  The flowers are from my stash of oldies but goodies.  The maiden sits on a circle of white glitter paper and Nesties teardrop circle die cut.

She is colored with Copics and, once again, I deviated from my usual bold coloring to a more simple water-color style.  I can't decide which style I like better.  I guess it just depends on the mood I'm in or the feel I get from the image.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Tomorrow I'll be "in the pink" with a Saturated Canary card.  I hope you come back for another visit!
