Agent Bubblegum Spying

Welcome to the second day of previews from Little Miss Muffet Stamps! Today we're showing off Agent Bubblegum Spying and a fairy, Breena Stitching.... and I chose to make something with Agent Bubblegum Spying. :D Come on over to the LMM Challenge blog and see the rest of the inspirational projects the DT have made for you!


My source of inspiration came from Chris at Sketching Stamper as I was very impressed by her grassy fields of flowers and wanted to try it out. I love her coloring too and the way she adds multiple colors for shading - which I also wanted to try, but one thing at a time. ;D Here's just two of her fields... Explorer Tilda and Spring Walk.


I started with the grass and used several of the YG colors with a few of the darker G range. Plus I added some Y in the mix and kept drawing in strands of tall grass until the pallet was completely covered. For the flowers, I got out some pink, blue and yellow acrylic paint and colored them with along with a few more strands of grass. Finally, I added some white strand with a gel pen and a few white flowers in the foreground.


I thought about adding a tree or some leaves at the top but then thought the image would be more in it's place if there wasn't any additional cover around. So I colored in the sky with B91, B60, C1 and C2. It's not an exact duplicate but I like how it turned out enough that I think I'll try it again. ;D I think it's the yellow and flowers that really make it happen. Thanks Chris for the inspriation!


I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge #123 - bright colors
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - sparkle & bling
