This Creeper sure isn't blushing!!!

I am SO excited to introduce you to the newest in the Creeper series - Piper! Creeper Piper will release on Friday, July 1st along with the other AMAZING releases at 12:01 am CST during our DT blog hop. She is sassy, she is funky & she sure doesn't know how to blush! *giggle*

Introducing "Creeper Piper"


Seriously, isn't she awesome? I love her!!! She was perfect paired with this Cosmo Cricket the boyfriend paper kit. Whenever I reach for my creepers, I tend to go a little wild and out of the box with the hair color. She is colored with copics and her hair is with R81, R83, R85, V99 with a touch of BV00, BV02, BV01, BV11. I have had a lot of comments asking about how I do the white highlights & if I use a gel pen.....I will gladly share my secrets with all you TGF Fans! 

I am actually using Copic Opaque White to do the highlights. I seriously LOVE this stuff. It is a thick acrylic water-based paint that I use with a very fine tip paintbrush where I want to add just a bit of highlight or texture depending on how thick I apply it. If I'm adding highlights, I will put a dab of it on a paint tray and mix it with a bit of water - this gets it to an ink-like consistency great for highlights. If you apply it thicker from the bottle, I have found that it dries a bit raised for added texture which is really cool!

That's it for me today, but we sure do hope you'll stop by the TGF Blog tomorrow, beginning at 12:01 am CST for our"BLUSHIN' into SUMMERTIME" DT Blog Hop/Release Party.  The ENTIRE JULY RELEASE will be up for grabs (and this is One HUGE release!) as well as some prizes and SUR-prises going on around our Facebook page, etc.... we definitely don't want you to miss a single minute of the FUN that we have in store for you, so we can't wait for you to join us then!  Don't forget to stop by the Farm Fresh Challenge Blog tomorrow for another awesome "Throwback Challenge" too!  As new meets old, there is a TON going on this month on the Farm...thanks for being a part of it and ENJOY the HOT new releases tomorrow...all SIX of them!!!!

You have a dangerous blog, i could spend all day here. Reading your list of supplies, the copics made me laugh and i was trying to figure out the washi tape...is that the green in the background, i've not seen it that wide so i wondered.
