Hi there

This is my DT project for crafting from the heart, using an image from Pinky Dolls
There's something about this image that reminds me of a stationary range that was very populate when I was a child, I decided to colour it up in a similar style, i.e. very minimal colour pencil shading.
I've then added it to digital embellishments in a vintage style using serif

Lady of the Sea

Hi there

What a fabulous new launch of digis from Mitzi at Aurora Wings today! 

I haven't used colour pencils since school but thought I'd try them out on this pretty image, the Derwent coloursoft range is very bendable and the front of this card actually started life as a blank white page. The background was softened further with distress inks.

I thought the poem fitted the image perfectly - it reads "Darwin may have been quite correct in his theory that Man descended from the apes in the forest, but surely women rose from the frothy sea as resplendent as Aphrodite on her scalloped chariot"

The digi can be purchased from the Aurora wings website or etsy shop. Use the code DIGIJOY to save 20% on orders over $5 this weekend or if you are buying both the mermaid new releases, use the code OCEAN2 to get 50% of the 2nd new release digi
