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.
Thanks for stopping by,
Toodles, Erica
