Hello everyone! It’s the final day of Spring previews featuring Stamping Bella‘s latest release. All images will be available for sale tomorrow morning and I can’t wait! I haven’t seen everything so I’m as excited as some of you!
Today the team is featuring designs using a new character, Dandy Lion. I think you’ll like him!
Hello Dandy Lion
I *love* Hello Dandy Lion! This particular image is my absolute favorite of the bunch (from those I’ve seen so far). I stamped him and his coordinating sentiment, colored his face and hands with markers, then stamped again onto a page ripped from an old book. (I got the book from a freebie bin at a used book store. One old encyclopedia is enough to last a lifetime!) I then very carefully cut out his mane, glued over the first stamped image and added shading with Copic markers. I also added white highlights to the “bubbles” using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.
Dandy Lion Protector of Hearts
Next is Dandy Lion Protector of Hearts. After coloring, I added a bit of Diamond Stickles to his wings, adhered a couple of Paper Smooches small clouds and matted over Queen & Company‘s Simple Stripes patterned paper.
Out of This World Dandy
With Out of This World Dandy I colored onto kraft paper and added white highlights with my White Pearl pen.
