CPS #246 and a Color Bleed

I wanted to try the OWH Tuesday Tutorial this week - a Copic color bleed technique that produced some awesome samples.

I started out creating the background layer by coloring with BG02, 05, and 07.  Then I dropped colorless blender solution on it, let it dry and dropped some more.  I wanted the primary drops on the darker squares to represent the circles in the sketch

When I saw how the background layer turned out, I knew I had to get out my a la modes Groovy Girl stamps .... it was just too hippie not to.

I actually stamped the girlie twice and did the color bleed technique on her dress as well, although I colored in a spiral pattern hoping for a nice tie-dye effect.  I paper pieced the dress in, then did some light coloring on the rest of the image. 

Thanks for stopping!
