I used my Prismacolor pencils again, because I love them so and just got a great deal on some at Amazon, so I have some new colors! And I used some white gel pen for accents. I used some techniques I learned from the free cupcake coloring class at Kit and Clowder for her hair. It's not perfect, but better than before the class!
After I trimmed her out, I adhered her to a watercolored background that was pre-embossed by Prima. It's made for paints, the paper is nice and thick. You get 6 printed pages in black and 6 of the same style in white embossing.
