Happy New Year and I hope 2011 is a very happy one for you all!
As promised I am back with a little look at the new 'Simply Adorables' about to hit Sugar Nellie VERY soon!!
This one is called 'Verity'. These images are very different to many others out in the market. They are beautifully and exquisitely illustrated and are especially perfect for those of you who are less confident in your colouring. A lot of the shading is already in place in the illustration so a lot of the thinking work is done for you. You still need to apply blending techniques to make it all smooth from one shade to the next. I coloured this one with pencils as I felt the image lent itself to softer tones.
The papers I have used are all Tim Holtz 'Vintage Shabby' and have been distressed around the edges then stitched. The flower is one from a lovely friend. The metal corner is Tim Holtz as is the little mini paperclip holding the sentiment.
There are 4 of these girls in the range and they come with either their whole bodies like in the one I have just shown you or just a head shot. Funky Kits is open again for business on the 5th January.....so keep your eyes peeled!
