I am so excited to share that I am now part of the Gilli stamps design team! I was introduced to them at CHA from my partner in crime Suzanne Dean and I just instantly fell in love with Anary the owner and her whimsical images. I threw myself around kicking and screaming until she agreed to let me play with her stamps hee hee! Seriously- when she emailed me after we met and asked me if I wanted to join I was over the moon! She has some amazing Gilli images that I really enjoy colouring.
Today is my first post over at the House of Gilli challenge blog. If you already have some Gilli stamps and wish to play along pop on over and upload your card featuring the sketch above. I used Fairy 2 Gilli on my card and coloured it with my copics using the new techniques I learned from Suzanne Dean. Let's just say it was like relearning how to colour all over again. This image is my first time using my new mad copic skills and I am happy with how she turned out. I changed the sketch slightly to move the embellishments from below the image panel to have her holding flowers instead. Want to know why?? For those of you who know me whenever I cut out an image, paper piece, creative placement of embellishments, etc. it means that Andrea messed up.
Can you see it?
Look closely at her thighs...yep she has blue thighs. Not.on.purpose.
It seems that when I used an extreme amount of blue ink on her dress that I apparently grabbed some with my skin colour and smeared it all around. Of course I did. And no matter what I tried I couldn't erase it or blend it in. So..she gets a pretty bouquet hee hee!
So pop on over to the House of Gilli blog to see more creations. Feel free to leave a comment on my post today telling Anary how awesome I am. I will pay you..lmbo!!!!
