Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #25 ~ Sketch

We have a lovely sketch challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps blog today...
and I've actually made a card I know shock horror, lol!

I had quite a bit of fun, ok lots of fun creating this card. It was so easy to make this Adorimal Bunny image with Kawaii face as a Character Balloon flying on the wind. I didn't even need any masking yay, the ears are separate images which means they can fly in any direction they so wish. The Balloon knot is in fact one of the piggy ears in the set (wonder if you worked that one out already?) I've coloured her using copic markers, I then trimmed her out with a slight border and popped on dimensional adhesive.

The background was built up using High in the Sky and Spritz & Speckles stamp sets, I wish I had taken a picture before the balloon was stuck in place, the clouds were masked and the speckles & drips looked fab. l finished off with the fabulous sentiment stamp, a very fitting quote and drew in a string with black pen.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #24 ~ Anything Goes

It's anything goes challenge over on the Paperbabe Stamps challenge today...
and here's a mixed media piece I've made

I created my mixed media piece because I really wanted to try out my pan pastels which quite frankly have been gathering a little too much dust and can I just say yum, I definitely need to include these on my desk more often.

I started by drawing the girl using the mini rag tails mixed media template, alongside the mini Head & Torso template. I've only used the pastels on her skin, the eyes, lips and nose from the mini Female Face set have been stamped in pigment ink directly onto the pastel.

Her hair I've coloured with watercolours, keeping to my usual favourite colours, I've added a little shadow and detail with pencil. Just love the bows, you can layer as many loops as you want using the templates.

 I painted the background last my usual trick of mixing a few paint colours on the page as I go, there's a little shimmer from an iridescent paint which is just lovely in the light. She looks quite mystical and I am still considering adding a pair of winter fairy wings, we will see...

I'm entering this into...
