The East Wind DT inspiration "Wings'

Today is new release day over at The East Wind for this beautiful angel digital stamp called 'Wings'.
She is a perfect image for sympathy cards.
I coloured it all in polychromos pencils and decided to cut some of her feathers a little to slip another feather, which i cut from a second print out of the same image, underneath. It made a nice 3D effect.
I embellished the bottom of the card with some whimsy farm twine.
The quote is computer generated.

The stamp is for sale via the East Wind etsy page and don't forget The East Wind challenge blog always has great challenges going.

Lucy Loo Mermaid II

I am a day late at blogging about this beauty. This is The East Winds latest release  called Lucy Loo ' Mermaid II'
A totally unique mermaid she is.
I have coloured her up with copics after printing her out with the no lines version. I love how the no lines gives a more realistic look. 
That is a pearl shell in her hair at the front. My hubby was wondering what it was :p
I used kaisercraft cardstock to make the card and some blue hessian i had tucked away in amongst my ribbons and twine.
Anyways thanks for dropping by

Lil patch of Crafty Friends DT inspiration

Today means a new challenge over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends challenge blog. It is number #20 and as always it is anything goes. 
We have some fab sponsors for this challenge one of which is 
Oddball Art Co.
 I got to have some fun with this image below called Starlynn for a bit of design inspiration for you.

I coloured Starlynn with copics. I used my cameo to cut out the card base and stars. Each star has glitter applied to it (all stars need to sparkle).
I really enjoyed colouring this image. Do drop by Oddballs etsy page and snag yourself some new images to colour. Then why not join in the challenge over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends

Aurora Hibiscus DT inspiration

It is new release day over at The East Wind Etsy store.
Unky has drawn up Aurora 'Hibiscus'. It even includes a sloth in her hair munching away on it's favourite snack.
Here is my first Instagram sneak peek
Here is my second Instagram sneak peek

And here is the big reveal!
This is the fourth time I have coloured with copics and it took me 4 hours to do. I went to bed right on the stroke of midnight.

I will have to get some more practice in so I can colour with them quicker. pencils are so much easier for me. 
I did make a note of some of the colours I used.
Hair - E23, E25, E29
Yellow flower - Y08. Y17, Y38
Pink flower - R00, RV11, BV20
I used some pencil to add her eyelashes and some shading in the sleeves.
So now it's your turn head on over to the etsy store and snap her up and colour her in. Don't forget to drop by The East wind blog or facebook page to see how all the other DT's coloured her up.
