InStyle Stamps January Sneak Peek

Good Morning! I hope you are all just swimming along in the new year. I say swimming only because Finding Nemo has been played over and over again by my dear son so much that all I can hear is Dori saying, "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swim..."

Okay, jumping back on the trail to a sneak peek of an InStyle Stamps new anime images coming out. Let me introduce you to Kristina. Now isn't she fit and fun on her basket adorned bicycle!

She's all done up with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS (odorless mineral spirits). I sketched in the path and hills and did the same coloring. I even used my pencils on the clear embossed background! That was something new for me, or at least it's been so long that I don't remember doing it before.

That's it from me for now. You can see more image sneak peeks by going over to Instyle Stamps blog for the whole list of Design Team creations.

Have a great day!
