3 days & counting and today is preview day 1

Are you all excited and looking forward to launch day at Crafty Sentiments?  Well just wet you appetite we are previewing the new stamps over the next 3 days starting with this little cutie 'Rosie - Spring Flowers', she is a dream to colour in. 

Now I was sat here trying to think what I could make for you today to show off Rosie when I noticed that my calendar didnt have a picture for May (or the rest of the year for that matter! lol) and I thought Rosie would fit the bill perfectly so her she is.  I have coloured her using my trusty copics and a touch of sakura.  I masked the image then did my background using inks and cotton wall balls and a cloud template.  I decide to leave the majority of the flowers white (suggested by DOH!) so they are like a basket overflowing with spring daisies and just added a couple of little pink ones.  I'm really pleased with how this turned out as I dont generally do much masking but will be in the future!

Well you've seen what I have to offer for today so now go and check out these fabulous works of art by other memebers of the DT:

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
Mad for Markers ~ Use your greys ~ I used W 5, 3, 1
Fab 'n' Funky #71 ~ Put those papers away

Ok thats all for now, be sure to come back tomorrow for another preview of a fantastic new rubber stamp.
