I really had fun with this image - although I may have gone a bit wild with the pearl drop pen I really like how she turned out!!!
I used 'Purple Gaze' by Helena Reis and colored her with copics. I edged the main image with a silver metallic pen and layered her to DP that I distressed a bit and some pretty gray ribbon.
I really like how her wings turned out too :) she is fun to color and I have a few more ideas in store for her!!!
Meet Sybille. She's an awesome image created by Sweet Pea artist Helena Reis. I am totally loving this witch/fairy. I love that she flies her broom with her cat too. I added some lovely spider web die cuts with spider charms hanging down from black bows. I put two simple sentiments on the card to go with her. Isn't she just perfect? I think this witch could be used on all sorts of cards, not just Halloween.
Here's a close up of the image.
Be sure and check out all of Helena Reis' images, I just love her beautiful maidens. She also have some adorable fairies and cute animal stamps too!
Good Morning All, It's featured Artist week here at Sweet Pea Stamps, and this week we are focusing on the beautiful image by Helena Reis. Helena's image have a lovely whimiscal feel to them, and choosing one to work with was quite difficult, as I love so many of them. In the end I went with one of my favourite themes - Alice in Wonderland and used the gorgeous Alice image by Helena.
Here's my project,
Doesn't Alice look wonderful on this Altered MDF Teapot, I had great fun with this project, and you can find lots more details over on my blog.
I really recommend you check out Alice in the store, as Helena's original version is quite different to my version, I'm sure you'll be quite surprised by how different they actually look. I hope you like my intpretation. That's all from me for today, don't forget to pop back tomorrow for some more gorgeous creations from our talented design team.
Since I still have Halloween on the brain, I thought this adorable image from Helena Reis called Trick or Treat. The paper is from my stash of Halloween papers. I used a variety of Copics to color this one up.
Our lovely Lynette from Sweet Pea also gave us some sentiments to work with and thought this one was perfect for a Halloween theme card. See sure to check out all the lovely images available from Helena at Sweet Pea Stamps.
Today is my day to showcase an image from Sweet Pea Stamps for our Artist Week where the whole team are using images by Helena Reis, I have chosen to work with the image Moonlight Whispers.
I started by colouring the image with Promarkers. Then used a Spellbinder circle die to cut it out.
Promarkers used and my trusty gold pen
Next I sorted my papers. For the background I used starry night vellum and while in the draw getting that out I came across some pinky purple plastic with holographic squares. When the light catches this it looks like there are stars lit up. Having totally forgotten about this plastic paper I was over the moon as it was just perfect. To add some texture I embossed one corner of the plastic with a Tattered Lace embossing folder. For the border and the doily I used the same starry night vellum that was used for the background. A digital sentiment was printed and cut. I ended up not using the sentiment as this was one card that did not follow my planning. Originally I had a song printed in mauve to fill a circle on acetate which I was going to overlay over the digi. Alas I did not like the result, it seemed like a good idea when I thought of it but did not work out as I had hoped. The sentiment was perfect for the song but on it's own a little cryptic so I changed to a hand stamped Happy Birthday sentiment instead.
Here is a close up of the plastic paper which I have embossed. In the final photo where I have used a light box this paper has become very transparent and most of the navy blue backing is shining through. Anyway, not to worry but in real life this is the true colour.
My attempt at rubber stamping, something I keep dabbling in but am not very successful at, I am a digi person hahaha.
The border was cut with a Tim Holtz die and I added a wee gold star and a heart to the bottom of the sentiment layer. The plastic paper was attached to the card with the same gold stars.
Inside of the card - using the same paper as the sentiment and a Scalloped Circles Spellbinder die I created an area for a personal message. This was edged with a gold pen and some wee dots added. There was a scrap of the starry night vellum left, not worth keeping so I decided to cut the doily again with it (well most of the doily, the paper scrap was not big enough for all of it <g>) and cut two good quarters for the diagonal corners.
