MMMMMM the sweet smell of new Rubbah.........

Aloha my lovelies how are you all? Isn't it just sooooo hot here in the uk, we have now got thunder & rain sadly no lightning yet tho :0( hopefully tho it will clear the air a bit.......I hope so. It doesnt help cus for how warm it is & I have to sit with hot water bottle a lot of the time cus I find it gives me a bit of comfort so like now I have 3 fans blowing on me pmsl.
Anyway remember me telling you I had some new rubber from Teresa at Crafts & Me well its not very often I ink up new rubber nearly as soon as I get it, however Hannah Lynn is my favourite artist & I could just colour her in every day I really could. So yesterday as a bit of therapy I sat in bed with me hot water bottle & I put Avatar dvd on & sat colouring in 2 of the new Rubber releases exclusive to Crafts & Me only & due to be released at any time now.........please hurry Teresa I want the others lol.
Anyway as I'm not up to crafting just yet altho I'm hoping to try tonight or tomorrow just instead of taking 3 hours to do a card it may take me about 5 lol. I thought I would show you the images that I've coloured you can see the gorgeous stamps Teresa is bringing to her store.
Now this first image I've altered with my colouring slightly......

This is 'Sweet Selena' mermaid mmmm look at those strawberries dipped in choccy delicious. Anyway she has of course been coloured with Copics. Now her arm she is actually wearing a glove but instead I did a naked arm & where the gloves end I made them to look like long finger nails & of course painted them red. Her fringe is a hlf fringe but instead I just coloured in part of it so it was just a wispy bit coming down & drew in the rest of her eyebrow, I love the look of it actually. I also enhanced her eyes with a dark grey copic as I thought black would be a bit too harsh. You can view the original here.

This one I fell in love with as soon as I saw her over on Hannah Lynn's website & I always hoped Teresa would turn her into rubbah..........& she did yayyyyyyyyyyyyy.
This is 'Genevieve Steampunk Fairy' & I coloured her the same as the original well her hair colour anyway lol. I also gave her make-up to match. Have you noticed they both have green eyes, I just love green eyes....not that I am bias at all cus I have green eyes lol. I havn't done the background yet you will have to wait til this beauty is on a card to see it completed. There are bits of glitter on both images but were really hard to photo this morning.
Thank you everyone for all the messages you have no idea how many times I've had leaky eyes since coming out of hospital you really are fantastic & dont ever let anyone tell any of you different.
I love you all mmwah
Lots of squishy hugs to you all I'm off blogging now as I really have missed you
