Pen Princess in Paris

I've been making these drawings for the last couple of weeks for my Crafty Templates site and I'm telling you it's addictive! I did a series of bird cards with hand drawings on last year and I got a bit carried away then but these are even funner because they're a bit easier to dress up than a bird! lolThis is Pen Princess, so called because she's just like the little princess icon I sketched years ago for my craftyprincess site and because she came out of a pen! I suppose she could be a Penelope too if you like but I prefer pen :-D. I used goodies from my GoGo Greetings kit to cut out the shapes from after printing her on to patterned paper and Bazzill, then coloured in the rest.
I always draw people like I learned when I did fashion design with triangle bodies and she kind of just stayed stuck with a triangle body! Then I've dressed her up in pretty and funky outfits, the kind I'd wear if I didn't always end up shoving on my jeans. I think I'll have to do a special dress up fashion series to make up like paper dolls - I love paper dolls! Defo have to do that! Anyway I digress so I started sketching this out the other night while watching the Apprentice (why did he not get fired!!!) and weirdly it fitted in perfectly with the cute card Thursday challenge for this week to make a travel themed card! Plus because the peeps on there always give away a freebie it's only fair that I give my Pen away too. :-D
