New Release - Bugaboo Stamps


One of this week's new releases in the Bugaboo Store is this cute Scarecrow Trio hat you will be able to find here

My images were coloured using Copic markers, and matted onto digital hessian/burlap paper.  I added a real ribbon and bow, and a digital sentiment.

World Literacy Day


My bookmark is made to celebrate World Literacy Day on 8 September, and features the Bugaboo image Book Sitter 2

I coloured him with Copics and a white gel pen, and added Glossy Accent for his specs.

The sentiment is a quote from Dr Seuss.
