A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Lacy Sunshine Ch #9 - Anything Goes

Hello everyone, I'm back to let you all know that Challenge No. 9 has started over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge and, for this next fortnight, we'd like to see your fabulous, hand-coloured creations any which way you'd like!  Yep!! It's ANYTHING GOES and so the sky's the limit!

For this challenge we are showcasing Heather Valentin's brand new Myth Collection and, I'm not embarrassed to say, I squealed with delight and did a massive happy dance when I saw this beautiful image Heather sent me to create with!!! She's called Selene - Moon Goddess and you can find her HERE.

This is the OFFICIAL and ONLY authorised shop for Heather Valentin's digital stamps.
How stunningly beautiful is she?

For my background I used some beautiful starry night paper from my stash.  I added some gorgeous Katy Sue Designs silhouette stickers, including the sentiment, which I have had for an absolute age but have only ever used once!  I think they look absolutely magical with the gorgeous Selene as centre stage :)  I heat embossed the edges of the card and sentiment and inked the sentiment up with Brilliance Dew Drops in Sky Blue and Mediterranean Blue.

I coloured Selene with my trusty Copics, hand cut the circle around her head to give the effect of the moon behind her, then fussy cut around her dress.  I had an inky time with the moon and used my Brilliance Dew Drops in Starlite Silver, Starlite Black and Moonlight White.  I used my Heat It Up silver embossing powder for the moon, stars and fairy dust around Selene.

Copics I used for this little lady are:
Skin:  E000, 00, 21, R11
Hair:  W1, 3, 5, 7
Dress:  B32, 39, 45

I hope you like my take on the gorgeous Selene today and hope you'll hop on over to the challenge, pop your entry in and take a look at the amazing mythological creations of my DTeamies!
