New Releases at Sasayaki Glitter

 Hi Everyone, I am here to share a few new releases at Sasayaki Glitter first up is Baby Girl with Rabbit, I thought she was just adorable but not really a baby, as she is walking, so figured maybe a little girl with a baby brother or sister on the way, so made it as a big sister card, as they are special too.

Second up is Unicorn Flowers, one of the many new unicorns going into the shop. They are adorable and this one is bringing some flowers to someone to say thanks. or that is my take on the image. I have used Brights designer paper for the background, the flower is from Prima, and the button Paper and sentiment are from Stampin Up. 

The final release I have is Shy on Vacation, When I seen the image I thought want to do something different, so decided to do a shadowbox card. They aren't hard to make and something different, I have colored him with copics and have used a number of dies Palm Trees, by Spellbinders, and Sunglasses and Camera are unbranded dies. The Smile word is chipboard and I painted it with a Yellow paint. the background to the scene is done using Distress inks in Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon

Sasayaki Glitter New Releases

It's a pleasure to work with such a talented artist, that I can't not do a couple of images or so for the new releases, then add another one a bit later,as it was a request from a fan that she drew for the Progressive challenge on her facebook group.

These are all new releases from July 1st for Sasayaki Glitter, you can find the images by clicking on the name.

First up is the Progressive image, called Summer Witch, most witches come in black and they are usually in the fall, so I thought having a summer one, she should be dressed in the opposite, which is white. Oh my never ever have I tried to color white with copics, this is a first. Anyway quite pleased with the way it has turned out. I have used some dies, and inks to create the background for this adorable image.

Second up is the adorable Confused Unicorn, just loved this image on site. so just had to color it. again I used inks for the background creating the rainbow, and added some bling in the way of sequins.

Last but not least is the Cheerleader. Oh my she was just too cute. anyway colored her with copics, then used some old Bella Rose paper, along with some gold and added some glitz in the way of rhinestones.

Thanks for looking hope you have a fabulous day and check out more ideas on the pinterest page, and come join the facebook group we would love to have you.
