August Sales and News

Hey everyone,

Thanks for all of the feedback on my last post! I have to admit, talking about the Twinkling H2Os got me even more excited about them. Yesterday I browsed through their online shop and bought a few oranges and yellows to fill in my palette. I can't wait for them to arrive!

I'm looking forward to using them with my new Hummingbird designs which are coming out later this month! I think the iridescent paint will be perfect for their feathers.

New Unmounted Sheets Arriving Soon...

Here's a sneak peak of both unmounted sheets. They'll be arriving in my online shop and at select retailers later this month (after the 15th). I'll post a day when we get closer.

UM-M6 is compilation of my current cling-mounted hummingbird designs plus one extra. When making the sheet I couldn't resist making a few minor adjustments to the designs. Mainly around the eyes. As I progress as an artist it's very hard for me to leave my designs as is when I can see how to improve them.

UM-M7 is a sheet of six completely new designs. I had a lot of fun researching different species of hummingbirds for this set. A couple of these are based loosely on existing birds. For example Jamaica's national bird the "Doctor Bird" a.k.a. "Streamer Tail". Does that give away which one it is? There's also one called a "Red-Tailed Comet" and "Booted Racket-Tail".

I hope you like what I came up with. I can't wait to see how people use these!

Challenges with my challenge...

On the first of the month I usually post the Customer Creation Challenge winner for the previous month. I won't be doing that today because I'm having some difficulties with Inlinkz not letting me know who the random winner is. I've written them and am waiting for a reply. I'll post the winner and this month's challenge as soon as I have it all figured out. Promise.

Sales for August

I can post sales today... Here are three cling-mounted stamps that I have discounted by 50% on my website.

Well that's it for now! I'll post about the challenge as soon as I have answers.

Thanks for stopping by :)
