Rhedd and Rosie's Fantasy/Mythical Challenge !

Rhedd and Rosie's Fantasy/Mythical Challenge !

This week Rick St Dennis has offered a prize of 3 digi images of the winners choice in the fantasy/mythical challenge on the Rhedd and Rosie's challenge blog.  The images are quite different for me and never have I spent so long colouring a tree before - it really pulls you in once you start!

I did the background, in fact everything, with Pro Markers they gave me the lovely gentle sunrise I was looking for and the lanterns have a little glossy accent to make them look like glass.

Here is a close up

and this is the full image - you will notice it is finished with some good old Lavinia Stamps! And the birds absolutely do NOT cover up an inky finger mark ;-)

I also did this one as well with adding another digi stamp underneath the background this time was with distress inks - very carefully applied!!

Why not pop on over to the blog and give it a go - for a non digi crafter I really enjoyed this challenge!!

Love Melissa xx
