Wonderful artist I've just discovered!

This week I stumbled upon an artist I wish I had of found sooner! MoonFlower digital stamps, has quite a few stamps that will slowly be added to my collection as my budget allows. The more realistic style images are really up my alley and ones I'm loving colouring! This image was the freebie that was sent with this month's newsletter. You can find the Blog HERE. There is also a Facebook Group where there is currently a competition going on with the theme "On the blue" which I entered my make into. So for those interested in my colours, here we go!

Skin: E000, E00. E11,E13, E21, R20

It's all about the hair!

This month's challenge on The East Wind's Facebook page is "It's all about the hair! (any image with fun hair style or colours)". For this challenge, I used 'Lucy Loo 'Over the Rainbow'. I recycled a broken wooden beach themed frame for this. I glued it back together, painted it, added the "rivets" to match the armour and flowers to match her hair. I love this image and thought it one of a few perfect ones for the challenge!

Design team inspiration piece for The East Wind

I am blogging this piece uncensored! In my mind and eyes, the naked human body isn't something to be ashamed of, nor do I find it offensive. But I have censored my image in my posts with most of the groups I have shared with on Facebook, simply because a minority do find it so.

Let me introduce "The Wedgewood Rose". I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it and knew I just HAD to colour her!

Copics used:

Skin: E000, E00. E11, E21, R20 (lips, blush and nipples) 
Hair: E,41, E43 and E44
Eyes: B91
YR000, YR00, YR02, and G94 (leaves)
Veil/scarf on arm: G000 and G00 
Skirt: G000, G00, G02 and G05
