Sparkle Creations 1st Anniversary Release & Hop!!!

Welcome to the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps 1st Anniversary Hop
To celebrate a year of SCRS we are releasing 4 new SCRS stamps this month!
First of all I want to thank Sparkle for choosing me to illustrate for her beautiful store. And a big love to the wonderful DT, I am so inspired by all your creations. I just adore seeing all the black and white illustrations I do turn into magical creations in the hands of these talented people!

Being the illustrator for the store I thought I would show the work process for each of the new release, and how I coloured them up! :) ENJOY
