lavender girl by git2 lavender girl by git2
"everything i own smells of you" - snow patrol

if prince has cinnamon girl, i might as well have lavender girl. i use reference for everything - the girl, the hand, the lavender branches.

ingredients:
green tea - staining purpose
color pencil
COPIC marker
some ink pen that is somehow COPIC-soluble, i have to use Hi-Tec pen next time

on-off 3 days of work

yes, i know the right down corner is empty and i don't intend on filling it because ... because.

I am in love in love with this piece. So calm and nice C: Lavender smells so delicious, and with the green tea you used... it sounds like an interestingly nice combination :~DDD

I wonder if my comment got lost in the bit space... Well, if it did, I just want to say I like this quite a lot, especially the stains. I considered doing it wit red wine once, but it just dried into an uglish shade of purplish gray... : P

Ah, wonderful stains. ^^ I considered doing the same with red wine once, but it dried into an uglish shade of grey and purple.. ^^; And I rather drink my wine. : P

Anyways, I like this. ^^

i think when it comes to staining, nothing does it better than tea or coffee
well, coffee will leave distinctive smell though ^^
i never really consider wine because ... well, i also rather drink it than stain it on paper ^^
thanks for the comment!

I love what you did with the copic marker and tea, its amazing. Did you use water-color paper?

it's not a watercolor paper ... actually after staining it with tea, it wrinkled, then i had to put the paper under weight to make it flat.
