Eglantine Faerie

Hello bloggers! I have another creation I wanted to share using the new images from Simply Sophia which were releases yesterday.  This one is Eglantine Faerie and I think she is adorable all snuggled up next to her familiar.  :D  So with that I went with a soft color pallet and here's my card...

The sentiment stamp is from Stampin' Up and the best part bout this card is I was able to use up the rest of my scraps in this paper line which always feel so good.  :D  Thanks for cooming by and if you get a chance you should stop by the Little Miss Muffet Challenge Blog and see wha the design team has done with these awesome new images!!

The Isles of Aldmer

I am here to show you two fantastic new images from Little Miss Muffet Stamps!  I have added a new artist to the mix ... Simply Sophia and you are going to love her style!!  For this week we have six new images added to "The Isles of Aldmer" and you'll want to be sure to check out the LMM Challenge Blog and see what everyone else has created.  :D

For my first project I used Serena Mermaid from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and went to town with the background.  I had tried this a couple times before with Cooking Tilda with Wooden Spoon and Monster Dreams.  This time I wanted to try with blues and see how that worked - and with all experiments, it looked horrible until it was finished.  LOL 

Here's a detailed shot of both the image and the background.  Someday I'll do a little tutorial on the background but I can say I started with a little splotches of greens and yellows.  Then layered on patches of blues from light to dark until it was filled in and blended.  Then I added drops of Blender refill and areas where I blended out colors.  Finally I added more bubbles with a white gel pen.

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

Crafty Creations Challenge #183 - Blue, Green & Yellow
Twisted Tuesday Challenge #19 - Predominantly Blue

Update: I was featured at Jackson's Digital Expressions for this creation!

These new images from Simply Sophia are amazing!  The faeries, mermaids and their familiars live at "The Isles of Aldmer" and there are even more surprises in the future when we go out and visit "The Hills of Mooradale."  You're going to love those too but that's for another release.  :D  Check out this next image from this release...

This project uses Warren Faerie from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and he's sitting on top of his best friend.  I wouldn't go anywhere without him by my side... would you?  He he he.  I thought this would be a great boy card and a fun birthday card.  :D  The sentiment is a Kid's Quote from Inkadinkado and has been one I've been wanting to use for a long time.

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

Aud Sentiments Challenge #61 - Numbers Up (Bingo sentiment)
Bearly-Mine Challenge #48 - Anything with Wings

Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you enjoy the new releases and our new artist Simply Sophia!  We think it's awesome and hope you make it over to the LMM Challenge blog to see everyone else's creations.  Have a great day!
