Hello everyone and Happy Thursday!   Well, I blinked, and *poof* summer ended.  I guess in terms of the lunar calendar, it is still summer here, but my kids returned to school today so figuratively, our summer is over.  In a way I am sad to see the kids head back to school, we had a fabulous summer, however, it does give me some more time to do my own projects, like crafting, tie dying and re-organizing my craft room for the hundredth time:)

I am sharing some inspiration with you today using one of this month’s new releases from Faery Ink Shop.   I have chosen the fabulous Lady Lahla Anthea Digital Stamp this month for my inspiration post.  This stunning image can be found in the Faery Ink Shop.  As always, Amanda's images from Faery Ink Shop are super fun to color - always so many options and often great scenery included in the image.

I decided this beauty was a bride (a bridesmaid would have also suited this gorgeous image, but I wanted to make her a bride).  I chose very soft colors this time around, something I usually stay away from, but I do like to push myself to try new things and do not want all my creations to look too similar.  I think the softer colors worked great and really help bring out the true depth of this wonderful image, I hope you agree.  I chose a fancy fold, I actually combined two fancy folds to make one large fancy fold and I just love how this fold nicely showcases the image without detracting from all the details of the image.


Image is colored with Copics and cut out using my Cameo.  These papers are from an Echo Park collection, ribbon is seam binding from my stash and the presents on the left side are stickers from my stash.  Additionally I added some Prima pearls.

Copics used:

Hair:  E79, E47, E57, E23

Face/Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R21

Lips: RV34, E04

Gown: RV34, RV11, RV10 and lots of colorless blender

Flowers are various combos of RV66, RV55, RV53, RV34, RV32, RV11, Y08, Y11, Y13, B00, B02, YR23 and YR21.

Flower leaves are YG67, YG17, YG03

Sure hope you like my creation and hopefully it has given you some inspiration.  Please pay a visit to the Faery Ink Shop to see all the wonderful images there, especially the most recent New Releases!!  Also, come play along in our monthly FB challenge - FUN IN THE SUN  - you can check it out at Faery Ink Facebook Group.  Wishing you all a great week!
