Personal sketch - Holly


Today, I spent a lot of time working on my sketching. I have a bunch of designs which I have named Woodland Creatures. I love the style of Magnolia, Hanglar and Sugar Nellie. I wanted to do my own variation, but with one of my favorite subjects....fairies. I love outdoor/ nature images. Pair that with fairies which are fantastical creatures of magic and nature. This particular girl is named Holly. I have her sitting on a mushroomed hill.
Stamps: none, my own personal design
Ink: Copic multiliner pen, Faber-Castell PITT artist pen, Distress ink in : China Blue, Pine Needle, Broken China, Shabby Shutter, Tea dye, Vintage.
Paper: River Rock, Real Red, Old Olive DP, Papertrey stampers select white.
Other: Copic Markers, Prisma and Faber-Castell color pencils, Twinkling H2O's, Spica Glitter pens, Stickles, May Art ribbon, copper brads, Prima flowers, Quickutz leaves and mushroom accent and swirls, Dew Drops, rhinestone brads.
I did my sketch on the Papertrey cs then outlined it in black and erased the pencil lines. Image was then colored. Accents were cut out on Cuttlebug and then card was put together.
have a great Saturday,
Hugs,
Sophie

Donna said...

wow - I concur with the posts before me, you could be designing your own stamps. Maybe you shoud contact Magnolia & see about illustrating for them; since you are already a designer-you have a direct link to them! I'd totally buy your stamps to support you! Your card is awesome, as usual!

Kraftin' Kimmie said...

Libby said...

Alyssa said...

Simply amazing! You are so incredibly talented! I wonder, do you paint art for friends or for your home? Or do you only do the card thing? Which I love btw, I just think you are an incredible artist! :)

Heather said...

Oh my gosh!! I'm with everybody else you should have your own stamp line!! I'd buy them...

Paula said...

What a wow card! Amazing lush texture in the colours. Just love it!

Mel M. M. M. said...

Amazingly gorgeous! If you ever want to emboss your drawings you can use gluepen embossing. The detail is not as fine as your gorgeous sketches, but it does let you emboss sketches. :0) Mel

Kay said...

As everyone else said, you should totally design a line of stamps because I know I would buy them. I love fairies, gnomes and gargoyles and it's hard to find images I like - you know, cute, but a little twisted :)

Leslie Miller said...

Okay...what in the world do you need stamps for when you can draw like this? Holy cow, Sophia! Your own images could give any stamp company a run for its money. You should be designing your own line of stamps. Someone will snatch you up shortly! You're fabulous!

stampgalaxy said...

oh wow, wow, wow.........if you fancy designing stamps for SG-me! just drop me an email, as we are currently looking for a designer and your designs are so fabulous. They would definitely sell.

Kay

Hey.

A bank is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Banks primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by bank vary over time and location. Bank are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, banks have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States bank are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=http://projectcontrol.v3host.nl]CLICK HERE[/url]
