Some Odd Girl Facebook Fun Day: Fabric Challenge

Hello everyone.  I find myself today "trapped" in another all day stamping event Darn it all ;)  I probably won;t be able to play all day as I have some monster cookies to make before 5 PM, but I at least get to play along with the first challenge with is stmap (or print digis) on fabric and color them.

I played Russian roulette with my printer for this challenge.  The directions were to use a fabric glue but I didn't have any so I used a glue stick and some vellum and prayed ... a lot!  I got a lot of smudged images but a couple that were good to work with (and my printer survived the game!)

And with Talk Like A Pirate Day 2012 a fading memory I thought Prate Kaylee was the perfect image.
I used the other images I printed to practice before I used one of my good prints.  After working for the last 7 weeks on blending in my Copic class it was hard to work on fabric because the method is SO much different.  I ended up stippling the contrast colors very carefully and watching the spread before doing the next dot.  It turned out OK I think except for the feather (garn!)  I decided I wanted a bluish background to ground the whole image and I got a little too close to the feather with my BG000

Here are the Copic deets:
Clothes/Shadow: C0,C1,C2,C4,C6,C8
Feather/Cheeks: R27, R29, R59, R81
Hair/Treasure Chest: E77, E74, E71
Brass hardware: Y35, Y32, Y38 
Eyes: B34, B97
Sky background: BG000
