Did I tell you I love these stamps? I have sooooo many colour combos going through my head that I want to try as they look different each time :D
This is my 2nd Bind it All book this week. Didnt do my usual ribbon on the coils bit this time as I didnt want to overload it. The image took about 2 hours to colour as you need to add some bits whilst its wet and some whilst dry. I used a technique called feather blending which involves blending two colours together. I've done this on the tail fin and around the moon (It could be a sun I guess!) Promarkers are not really designed for this technique, wrong kind of nib so the blended bits I switched to copics.
The book is covered with starburst stains which I thought went well with the blue/green of the image and adds more sparkle. I painted on shimmerz pixie dust on the green strands of hair, eyes, tail and clothes. The frames are a nestie, its the only nestie I own and hate it but crafty catz wanted fancy frames and I dont have anything else lol!
The additional butterflies are a magenta stamp which is almost brand new *blush* Must have had it 3 years lol! I coloured with promarkers and copics and painted over with shimmerz. This is very very sparkly with the starburst stains, shimmerz and sparkle ribbon.
Really enjoyed colouring this one :D
Crafts and Me should be getting a delivery of some more Sweet Pea stamps this week so keep checking and grab while you can as they go very very quickly! Can't wait to get my mitts on some more as they're so much fun to colour :D
