Little Miss Muffet Tuesday!

For the next five tuesdays I have the great honour of being a Guest Design Team Member for Little Miss Muffet Stamps! Was very excited to join the team for a stint and colour in some of the fabulous images! It's going to be hard for me to pick a favourite, but I might be starting with it! Here is Gelsey.


I had seen her once before on my friend Marion's Blog and thought she looked awesome to colour! I also wanted to pick a strong quote or saying for her, and in the end chose "Kind Heart, Fierce Mind, Brave Spirit" so I can send it to a friend next time someone needs some strength and support! (Font is Holiday Springs BTN)


I have coloured her with polychromo pencils (on kraft card ) and a tiny bit of white posca pen. I also added Glossy Accents to the beads and some stickles to her tail. Bling/Bubbles are from the stash.


Quite like it when the smooth card under the pencil catches the light and makes her tail look translucent! Wish I could capture that with my own colouring!  Gelsey is in the Little Miss Muffet Shop for just $3, and I definitely enjoyed every cents worth, so many details to focus on and effects to try and create! I pushed myself to go gold with Gelsey, and not fall back on my usual silvery metal effects, I think it gave her a richer look?



Thanks very much Little Miss Muffet Stamps for having me on the team! Project one complete! Excited to share project two next week!

  2. Awesome! I'm very honoured to have you as a guest too. :D You captured the gold color well for tools and the yellow does well to contrast with the blue/green. I love everything on it!

    1. Hi Sabrina, thank you so much for popping to the blog and commenting, it is much appreciated! I only have the box of 24 polychromos and a couple of extras. (I had to buy a flesh and a pink in addition to the 24 box.) But mainly I use 5 colours for the flesh - White, Venetian Red, Walnut Brown, Pink Madder Lake and Light Flesh. Don't normally need anything else. :) Feel free to pop me an email if you want to chat more about colours and things: eekbob1@hotmail.com I am always happy to discuss colouring :) x
