Lucy Loo 'silver knife'

New release day at The East Wind again today.
This time Unky has drawn up a traditional looking Lucy Loo in her Hanbok outfit standing in front of a silver knife.You can purchase the digital stamp here digital-stamp-lucy-loo-silver-knife
After a bit of googling I read that silver knives were a common item to conceal on a person in case they were needed. They were a small knife and some have beautiful carvings on them.
Anyhow here are my sneak peeks I shared on instagram (you can follow me at @ericabruton)

And here is my finished piece.

I have used polychromos pencils to colour lucy in and used inktense watercolour pencils for the background. I decided to giver her some stairs to be walking down out of something she may have been struggling with. The sentiment is computer generated and the punch edge is an EK success flower petal punch (i can't remember what flower though).
I am super happy how the background brought this image to life. as you can see in the photo below she would have been missing something without it. Backgrounds are one of my favourite things to make at the moment. It gives me a chance to play around.

I will be entering this creation into the following challenges


  1. I have to agree the staircase really adds to the background. A lovely image and you colored it beautifully. Thanks for linking up at Loves Rubberstamps this week, good luck! Hope you can join us in more of our weekly challenges.
