Apple seed

Ugggh I have the flu or something so I am a tad late with this blog post.
yesterday was release day of the following amazing digital stamp by Unky from The East Wind. It is called 'Apple Seed' and you can purchase the image here.
Here is my first sneak peek I shared around and on Instagram...
here is the second sneak peek I shared on Instagram

Here is the reveal!!

I loved this image as soon as I saw it and had to put my hand up to colour it. I am so into colouring images to full effect and this was a great one to use. I decided to colour her as if she was a witch in a mirror holding out an apple with a spell on it. Care for a bite?
The frame was cut with a cameo and I heat embossed it with silver/metallic embossing powder.
I used Polychromos pencils to colour her and from memory the following pencils were used.
-dark red
-cadmium red
-deep red
-scarlet red
-dark indigo
Light yellow ochre
-dark naples ochre
-dark sepia

Cape and background
-Dark indigo
-warm grey

So that is that :) I love her!
Don't forget the East Wind has a closed facebook page which has a challenge 'all about the hair' running until the 17th of September so be sure to colour up one of the awesome images and go all out on the hair!
The East Wind also has a challenge blog and has a challenge which is just about to finish (don't worry a new challenge will be on it's way if you don't make it in time) where you need to add corrugated cardboard to your creation. You can find the blog here.

Thanks for dropping by.
