I've been working on the release a long time now and it is finally here!
The Big Flower Release!
And everyone who played along in the Eliza's Birthday coloring contest has a chance to win this release! Winner will be announced Sunday the 16th! The design team ladies have been working with me to create some awesome samples to show you so it is a big post!!
Modeling paste and baking soda because it was to thin
Pink Glitter washi tape
Feathers and all sorts of Flower Embelishments
The blueish canvas background I did a long time ago when I first got my magicals and mists, and I cant remember which colors I used I think the Tiffany Lou's Blue with some coton candy pink to get the more lilac tone.
The Butterfly is a stencil made with distress ink. The lace flowers are a tim holtz stencil with modeling paste and then waterpainted with the magicals.
Now the feathers, paper flowers and the pink and purple wooden flowers where already colored. I just added some shimmer with Lindy's Magicals waterpaint style.
After painting on the feathers I dabbed them with a paper towel to dry them and just the glitter remained.
The greenish wooden flowers where wood colored and also painted with lindy's Magical but using way less water to ge the coverage.
I am so happy to celebrate with you today! There are a couple of surprises for you here today, but first I want to tell you a little about how it all started :)
I had been coloring digital stamps for a long time and I loved the idea of drawing some stamps of my own, but I wasn't sure if my drawings were good enough.
I had joined the Kit and Clowder community and one day Alyce asked me "if I would regret it, if I didn't try to make stamps." It made me realise I just had to try even if noone would like them. It still took me a little while to figure out the whole digital drawing thing but finally on March 28th 2016 I released Eliza's Flowers Swing.
After you grab her please come over to the Flowers, Feathers and Fairies group to join in a coloring contest that runs till April 15th! Winner wins the new release going live April 15th!
And just a note for those of you that are already familiar with K&C you know what this weekend is right? First weekend of the month, and we all know it's time for...
There is also a bloghop happening showing of the projects made by the DT and me. I made a new post for this because otherwise this one wouldn't have an end :P You can win a stamp if you comment on every blog!
Keeping with the mythical creatures theme I wanted to do one with Feathers and I wanted to make an image that would work for boys and girls that love fantasy!
It's a Gryphon :D half eagle, half lion! And there are tons of feathers on this one!! In the shop now!
and we love feathers don't we Wanda? The first colors that probably come into your mind are gold and brown tones cause who has seen an eagle or a lion in any other color right? Well I thought the same but after chatting with Wanda a bit we decided to make 1 golden and 1 colorfull gryphon! Here is Wanda's brown-golden gryphon on an amazing card:
So I wanted him to look magical and mysterious with deep blue and green tones! It was a challenge thats for sure and it didn't look right untill it was finnished, I suppose thats why Alyce(kit and clowder) always tells us to never stop half way.
Blues: B39, 37, 26, 34, 32, 00 Greens: G29, 28, 05, 02, 00 Gold: YR27, 23, Y21, 11 To get more definition in the feathers on his chest I use W9 for cast shadows and white gelpen for the center. Distress inks used for the background piece: Peacock feathers, Broken China, Mustardseed and a very little bit of spiced marmelade. I really hope you like my crazy colored gryphon!
I cant wait to see this one in all kinds of colors!
Who is up for the challenge?
What about purple with gold,
or from pink to orange to yellow for the girls,
or fiery red with a black beak and claws?!
