BBQ Santa

Christmas is coming so I thought I better get some digital stamps made ready to use on some cards this year. It is so hard to find Christmas stamps to suit Aussie Christmas. It is usually hot, people celebrate at the beach and my family always have a BBQ with our family and friends so I figured yep a BBQ Santa image would be perfect. So here he is 'BBQ Santa' which you can purchase from my etsy store now
Got to have an esky to keep the drinks cool and blue is the usually colour of these

Santa has managed to get a little sunburnt while down under

A lovely green santa sack full of gifts

Not Christmas without our fellow companion, our dog. I have gone for a Kelpie breed here.

Here is the finished card. i mounted it on kaisercraft cardstock and the pattern paper is also from kaisercraft 'christmas basecoat' with lovely native foliage. I used my own initiative and cut out some gum leaf shapes and made teeny tiny gum blossoms. Stuck a couple of star buttons on and tada.
'Christmas is in the air when it is in our hearts'

Love in a mist

Tada! My latest digital stamp is now in my etsy store
This digital stamp is called 'Love in a mist'. It is Spring in Australia and we have these pretty flowers blooming all throughout our front garden.
I coloured the stamp with copics and finished off with some details using pencil. I popped it onto a butterfly fold card and added some little white flowers and leaves.
This card is heading off to my mother in law for her birthday. Fingers crossed she loves it ;)

You can see a tutorial video I posted about creating this card. it is on my Ericraft Stamps facebook page. This is the link >> https://www.facebook.com/groups/Ericraft/

Die Laughing release

Just in time for you to colour up for Halloween creations is my new digital stamp called 'Die Laughing'. My father in law hates clowns so i figured what better way to scare him this season, mwahahaha.
You can find the digi in my EricraftShop etsy store . It will be on sale for the remainder of this month as part of the facebook Markers Papers Digi group Summerween event. Lots and lots of exciting stuff going on over there at the moment and plenty of stamp companies to play along with so pop by and have a look, even better join in :)

Below is my coloured up version of my new drawing. I love love love how it turned out. Even the rainbow wig on the other poor clown.
I used copics mainly for the colouring and added a bit extra detail with polychromos pencil and a bit of copic white ink. The phrase is computer generated. The moon i added with copics to go with the phrase.
I also mounted the image with foam tape just to lift it off for a bit extra detail :)

So there you have it, my new digi 'Die Laughing'.

Gypsy

A new release has come from Ericraft Stamps and it is called 'Gypsy'.
 I really enjoyed drawing and colouring this image and it is available now from my etsy store via the Ericraft Stamp Shop tab up the top :)

So I decided to dust off the copics and have another try with them.

I wanted a woodland feel to the image so a background was needed. I used the copics with nice decent brushstrokes to flick the colour onto the paper. 
I like to give a good basecoat with copics and then i like to add finer details with pencil as you can see in the next photo.

I really love how it turned out.  The sentiment is computer generated and I think fits the image perfectly 'All those that wander are not lost'. I added a few sequins just to add a bit of sparkle :)
Perhaps the horse needs longer hair just like the gypsy vanner horses? Anyways i like it all the same.

Don't forget I am super new to selling digital stamps and I do have a facebook group if you would like to join and follow along with new releases etc. www.facebook.com/groups/Ericraft
