Stella

 Have I mentioned how sweet I think the Saturated Canary digis are?  This is Stella and she can be found at Krista's Etsy Store and I just purchased her last week.  If you check out her blog, you'll find her February newsletter plus she is also giving away the cutest little freebie which is perfect for Valentine's day.  Take a moment and read the whole post because there is information which sadly affects every digi designer/artist out there and it is up to us as the consumer to be aware of what is going on and not support those who are seeking monetary gain by dishonest means.
Stella is coloured with Copic markers and I shaded around her with Tim Holtz's Tumbled Glass distress ink.  I stamped around the edges with a swirly little stamp I have using Spun Sugar distress ink.  The clock die is Tim Holtz's Weathered Clock die and I sponged Walnut Stain ink around the edges.  The papers are SEI, which are some of my favourite.  The sentiment is from Whimsy's Birthday Letter Seals.  The flatbacks were white but I needed red and didn't have any so out came my Copics and I simply coloured them.  Lastly, to give the glasses some dimension, I filled in the lens with Inkssentials Glossy Accents.
