Here's the first of two Bind It All books I've made this week. Finished this one off today, originally she had a yellowy blonde hair but it just did not go with the lilac and teal so I changed her hair to brown and felt a lot happier with it! Dreadful pics I'm afraid, I shall try and do them when we actually get some daylight lol!
Went for a pale dusky lilac with this one, used blossom and the lilac. For the wings I saturated them with the blender and pushed colour in from the outer edges and went over with a copic spica clear pen. The background is painted with starburst stains in fern green and bluebells, their sparkly effects can be seen on bottom pic.
The ribbon at the bottom is also dyed with starburst stains. The book covering is yes you've guessed it starburst stains lol! As I ofetn mix and scrunch and make up batches I often forget what colours I used but I suspect its Mermaid seashells.
Quite like the softer look with this stamp. Got another sweet pea BIA book coming up which I'm just finishing off. Next time I'm going to switch and do the mermaids in softer tones and do this one in much bolder, I like all the different looks, bit like changing the wardrobe :D
Sweet Pea stamps are available in the UK exclusively to Crafts and Me or check out the main Sweet Pea site if you live elsewhere.
