Paperbabe Stamps Challenge ~ #8

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge is a sketch and here's my interpretation,

I have painted Little Red with watercolour very quickly... to then mask before stamping layers of Spritz & speckles in blues and greens for the background. The sentiment is from Fabulous everything set.

Then I used the Large Peony stamp(will be on re-order soon) with gilding flakes for an interesting feature. I've seen quite a bit of foiling and gold work round blog land it was fun to try.

I just love what the team has created, maybe you would like to join in to? It's open to everyone and you have the chance of winning even without Paperbabe Stamps. 

Have a wonderfully creative day, BiG HuGs Kim x

My Beacon Of Light!

It's been six months since my last post, tut tut tut.
Well who can blame me really? I think I've spent so much time in and out of hospitals with my mum, then to arrange her funeral and emptying her house of everything from the last 34 years. Her business, her art and embroidery and memories. Phew!!!
I miss her greatly, so I decided to focus my grief into getting arty and joined life book 2015...

This is week one's Beacon Of Light
Ok I do realise it's February already but hey It's actually finished, well, maybe, I'm sure I could tweak a little here and there for the whole year lol!
A little glimpse of the work in progress... I wonder if you can see which of my Paperbabe stamps I've used?
And complete(ish) remember the possible tweaks) What I do love is how this piece of art can change depending on how you're looking at it. I've used the heart image from Doll face set and stamped them with white paint like they were flowing out of her light. I used my favourite peony which is subtly stamped in the background. The sentiment I hope will keep me focused through this year I used Watercolour Alphabet for that one.
I used Paperbabe Doll Face Stamps for her eyes (new stock will be re-ordered soon), I bet you could tell? But I opted to free draw the nose and mouth as I wanted them fuller then the stamps in the set.
This little creature is something I felt complimented what I'm going through, that elegant delicacy, ever so slightly vulnerable but with a confident strength that you put on show. Painted white for light with pink shading to give the look of porcelain.
SEE? this is what happens when you see her from different directions. Her hair was generously painted with yumminess of bronze, gold and iridescent gold paints, I opted for free flowing hair I felt it expressed her beacon of lightness.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed the first step on my arty journey?
Have a wonderfully creative day!!!
