SOC week 5, Wild and Reckless

Hello everyone,
wow week 5 of Summer of Colour and it will be over very soon. This has been a fun and very creative experience for me as I am working with wonderful colours and putting my sketching skills to use. I did another ice cream girl for this week. 
Look at this colour prompt Kristin chose for us to use this week...isn't it yummy?
It is called Wild and Reckless, another Baskin Robbins special.

I drew this girl in my sketch book recently and decided I would scan her then print her on script scrap paper. Well after she came out I noticed the paper was upside down, no big deal, you can't stress when things like this happen, it just makes for more interest and makes people think, why is it upside down? No reason, it just happened. So I took all these yummy colours and painted the girl and  the background in washes of acrylic paint, I more or less pounced on the colours for easier blending. into one another on the background. My lime green wasn't bright enough for my liking so I got out the watercolours and painted right over the lime green and it really made the lime green pop more. I also dripped some of my new Ditto ink sprays which have a nice shimmer . I didn't want to spray the whole background so I just took the sprayer out of the bottle and dabbed and dripped a bit here and there then smudged with a tissue. I also pounced some of the other acrylic colours on to add interest. As you can see I also had to add my homemade texture to this using a dollar store sticky back stencil. The girl's dress has scrap paper that had these same wonderful colours and I added some jewels to her neckline and painted a white flower lime green and dabbed a bit of ink on it. I really love how this one turned out. She will be going into my SOC Ice Cream inspiration mini journal. 
Thank you for stopping by. Don't forget to visit Kristin's blog for links to lovely art and creations during this very creative SOC Ice Cream Inspiration.

Not sure what is going on with the white background....this has happened  before and is not intentional.
