Bright and cheerful

I fancied making something bright and cheerful. I didn't know what - so this is what I came up with.


The from the Goddess' plate of images.

I stamped it twice as I wanted to collage on the leaves. I am undecided whether to colour the face flesh colour - or leave it as it is.







I used red, yellow and green inks, and dragged them onto the mount board tag to blend the colours.





I stamped on oak laeaves for the background, just to soften the colours a little.

Wow Lottie thats a stunning piece of work !!!

Hi my friend, I am really just calling to say a very big special thank you for caring enough to leave me a lovely comment and support after my news of my son. Adam is 30 years old and has two children, a three year old litle boy Hayden and a baby girl Casey. Its been a difficult time to say the least but things have improved and Adam is home with his family since last night. He will still need a lot of time and a lot of changes and plenty of medical help but just seeing him with his babies is so wonderful. I thank you so much for the support and care you have sent and i will try and catch up with blogging in the near future
Hugs June xxxx

rotally stunning - the colours are gorgeous.
Have you got the Tattered Rose Distress ink pad,if you have,you can use it as a watercolour to tint her face....I just stamp the ink pad on a non stick mat or on a acrylic block,I then spritz with water and then use a paintbrush to paint with (do a test on a piece of scrap paper just to check the colour is ok)
Could you part with her?? If you could then I'd love to nab it before anyone else does!

Love it love it...powerful and dramatic.
Colouring the face could be a good move or a total disaster...think I'd err on the side of caution in this case and leave it. The contrast adds quite a haunting feel to the piece. You are certainly on a roll missus.
