May preview: Relaxing Charlotte

Today Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps is showing sneak peeks of it's second new stamp of the month, Relaxing Charlotte! This is perfect for those who love spa days or just a nice bubble bath! 

Sparkle will be giving away this new stamp to one lucky person! For a chance to win click HERE and follow the blog hop! Sparkle has already announced the lucky winner of Shopping Emily from yesterday's hop! So don't miss your chance!

I'm not part of the blog hop, but as the illustrator for the company, I thought I could share the work process of the new stamp.
When Sparkle briefed me to do a bathing Charlotte I immediately thought that she would look so classy in a classic claw foot bathtub! I always wanted one of those in my house!
And here goes my version of the coloured up Charlotte!

I adore how Shaela Odd used the stamp! I love her use of mixed media!


  1. I love your illustrations Aki, and I'm tickled to death that you posted my card to help you show it off, lol! Keep up the great work. :) I love all your other illustrations too - I didn't realize you did so many children's books, that's awesome! I'm a writer and have a slew of children's book manuscript to publish "someday". :) You're inspiring me... I want to see my name as the author on a gorgeous book like those!

  2. Thank you for your lovely comment Shaela! Yes, my main occupation is illustrating for Children's books! I have 24 coming out in 2011 (12 has already come out!). I love my job although my schedule can be rather hectic. I didn't know you were a writer! Such an honor to see my images being used, improved and given life by people as talented as you!
