I'm having a lovely time...

...colouring some fabulous images.

There were so many super items in the recent batches that Ignacio has sent out to the DT that I was having difficulty deciding where to start. So I printed out a selection...
...and I can assure you, this is only a tiny selection of what I printed. Even with them printed, I was still struggling to decide where to start and as you can see - I made a start on several (the image in the centre has made it onto a card as you will see in the previous post).
Line drawings of Peter Rabbit...
...which are part of...
...the lovely digi-stamp sheets that you can find here.
Or fabulous fairy folk...

...that Ignacio wonderfully sent to me when I asked about B/W versions of the super images that are part of the pre-coloured set...
..."About Fairies & Angels", which you can find here.

Enough was enough, I really needed to knuckle down and finish some images instead of keep flitting from one thing to another - a bit like a kid let loose in a candy store (oh so difficult when you see all the wonderful images that are available over at Nicecrane Designs).

So decision made, I decided to get this pair of cuties finished...

 ...and I 'played' with the background and the scenery - I hadn't even noticed those mushrooms until I started colouring and I certainly had a good play creating the sky. There were a few "oops" moments when the colour was not quite right or seemed too bold - but that is where the blender pen comes into its own. You can 'take back' the colour to lighten it and also blur the edges so that things blend into each other.

As I've said before, it really is a matter of playing with alcohol pens and you will soon find that there is rarely something that can't be put right.

Here is the finished image...
...I love the subject and just in case you can't quite see...
...yes, I did add a bit of sparkle to their wings. Now I just have to make up my mind what I am going to create with the completed image.
In the meantime, I just had to have a go at colouring this wonderful mushroom...
...I love it and I'm really pleased with the way it has turned out...
...this is a 'work in progress' and I now have to make up my mind what colour outfits I'm going to give this fun pair.

Ignacio has now released the digi-stamp version of these images over on the Nicecrane site. You can find them here...
...and if you look closely, you can see my name down in the bottom right-hand corner of the pre-view sheet. One of my partially coloured images has been used as a sample. **happy dance**

The rest of the DT are having a fabulous time with all the new Spring and Easter designs over on the Nicecrane blog.

As for me?

I'm away with the fairies................................................................
