  7. Pick up some ink from the well using a Blender Pen. and add colour to her features and hands
  8. Repeat the same technique using the Hello Homey Classic Ink Pad, and begin by picking up ink using the same blender pen, and adding colour around the lines of the hair and drawing the ink into the waves of her hair.
  9. Add additional lowlights by repeating this process with the Delightful Dijon Classic Ink Pad. and finally add colour to her Halo.
  10. Finally, using the same technique again, and the same blender pen, and the Smokey Slate Classic Ink Pad, add some shadow/shading .... again, to give a hazy ethereal appearance.
