{DTBST #318) It is the day of the Dawning of Aquarius!

Here's my ode to all the February birthday's out there! The Sassy Studio Designs blog challenge this week is "It's all the Same: make a monochromatic project!
I am loving the colors on this one!!! Of course I wanted to do it in aquas for Aquarius, and I went a little toward the green end of monochromatic to give the image some more pop! I haven't quite mastered coloring skin tones in non-traditional colors, so I also used my artistic license there too, and went with my go-to colors. LOL!   The image can be found in the zodiac section of the shop; just scroll down the images until you see it.
Copic colors: Skin: E04, 21, 51, 50, R11. Lips: BG49, 15, 32, W5. Hair: BG 49, 15, YG11, W5. Eyes: W5, 100, BG49, 32, YG03. Background: BG32, YG11.
The image is partially cut with a rectangular die, with the image being fussy cut in the areas outside the rectangle. To do this, just place the die onto the image and lightly draw with a pencil where you want it to cut. Then fussy cut areas outside the pencil line. Now the die can be placed into the image; just put the cut out areas on top of the metal edge so they don't get cut off.
  The background panel is a 3-D embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers. I was still trying to keep the theme; birthday, astrological signs, gemstone theory going...
Hope you will join the fun and give it a go. You don't need to use a SSD image to play along, but we love it when you do. Enter by next Wednesday night for your chance to win 2 SSD images of your choice.

There is some extra incentive for using a SSD image, 
you get to enter twice. So if you use one, make sure you
 link to your blog post and the second link can just be to your blog 
(it won't let you link to the same post twice). After your name, please put SSD, so we know why you are linking twice!
