Garden Sprite by Robin Pushay

Hi there crafters,
Mira here today sharing a new project with you all!
I used this adorable new released image called Garden Sprite from the Robin Pushay.

Isn`t it a fabulous image, there is so much detail.
It is not a secret that I love using as many colours as I can. That is why I used rich colour palette.
It was a real challenge for me colouring this stamp. I hope my result and the image inspire you to dive deep in the magnificent fairytale world!
I coloured the image with my favorite Spectrum Noir markers:
Skin: FS 2,3,4,8,9;  CR4,5
Eyes: HB 1,2; TB4
Hair: GB 8,9,10; EB 2; LY 3;  CG3
Dress: DR 6,7; PL2,3
Wings: DR 6; PL 3; CG 1,2,3
Flowers and Leaves: HB 2,3; PL 1,2,3; PP 3,4; BP 1,2; DR 3,4,6; CT 3,4; CG 3,4 
Background: DG 1,2; CG 2,3; Blender

Wish you a colourful and magical week!

image transfer

The wonderful images by Emily Luella are great for making an image transfer. 
You can find the images here

What do you need:
a background, I used a gelli print
an image printed with a laserjet printer 
mat gel medium (liquitex, golden, ara, deco art or any other brand)
mini mister

I removed the background of the image.

Put the image upside down on your background and trace the shape.
If there are words or numbers in your print, be sure to make a mirror image print, otherwise you won't be able to read it after you've made the transfer. 

Add a layer of gesso. 

Add a layer of gel medium on the image and let it dry. 
Add a layer of gel medium on the gesso also and let it dry. 

Add a second layer of gel medium on the image and glue the image on the gesso. 
Make sure that all the airbubbles are removed , use a old debit/creditcard to do this.

And let it dry completely, usually a night.

After it dried all night, spray water on the image and let it soak for a few seconds.

Rub away the paper.
You need to repeat this a few times before all the paper will be removed. When the image dries up white, it means that not all the paper is removed yet. so add water, let it soak and start rubbing again. 

When all the paper has been removed your image will look like this. 

I used this image and background for making an art journalpage. 

hope you'll like this little tutorial
