Featured Artist Week - Mitzi Sato-Wiuff with Jane

Sweet Pea Stamps

Hello folks, here I am again with an image from Sweet Pea Stamps.  This week is Featured Artist - Mitzi Sato-Wiuff, a stunning fantasy artist.  If you love fantasy you really need to check out her artwork, it is amazing.  I have chosen to use the image Snapdragon Sprite with Baby Dragon, this image is only available as a rubber stamp.

What a lot of fun I had using this image to make a gift bag.  I have to admit, it is not the sort of image I tend to go for but once I started colouring it I was in my element for a whole two hours and that was just the colouring lol.

So to start with, a plain gift bag.
I had decided to work in oranges - now that is a challenge for me, I can colour in blues, purples and greens but when it comes to the hot colours I seem to lose it.  As the say, practice, practice, practice.  Promarkers and the air gun attachment were used to colour the bag.
 Next I took a piece of lace and coloured it the same way as I did the gift bag.
Once the lace was dry I attached it to the gift back with spray adhesive.
To finish the main part of the bag I attached some peach organza ribbon and added Liquid Pearls around the bottom edge.
Now for the embellishments.  Another thing I am useless at is bow tying, even after lots of practice the bows look OK but nothing special.  Last night I sent a couple of hours hunting the net for ways to tie bows and at last think I have found a way that works for me, yes, I am pretty pleased with my bow this time hahahaha.  The metal love heart is from a pack I bought ages ago and just never seem to have the right thing to use them on until now :)
 Silver really was not a colour that was going to work with this card so I coloured the metal love heart with the same colours as I am using of the image.
 Next to colour the image with my Promarkers.
And here we have the completed gift bag.
I also added some skeleton leaves behind the image, nice and delicate and add some more texture without being to cluttered.
Hope you like my creation and thank you for stopping by :)
