Sneak Peek – Combined Relase with Tiddly Inks!!

Zoe July 3, 2011 61

Hi everyone,

I am really really excited as I am soon to be releasing a new collection that I have been working on for a long time. Some of these images have been in my inventory since November last year and I have been holding off until I have just the right collection.

Earlier this year Christy from Tiddly Inks and I thought we would get together, combining our ideas and excitement to bring you a release that you can combine together to create fantastic scenes!

The theme of our collections are Steampunk with a Victorian feel.

I decided to colour in an image today so that I could give you a sneak peek of what is to come. Most of my images will be background scenes however I do have a few characters, one of which I am sharing with you now.

This is Elizabeth J and I had so much fun colouring her. I admit that the folds in her dress were a little scary at first, but I enjoyed the challenge and am very happy with the result, (for once). Haha.

To create this rich red I used N9, N7, R59, RV29 & R35. I know not a likely combo but it really does look great. Far better in real life.

The black mid area was coloured with N5,7 & 9 and the hair and tights coloured with C4, 5, 7 & 9. I also used the blender pen to create some texture on her tights by blotting them.

Skin was coloured with E000, E21 & E11.


We will be releasing the images on July 14th with a bang! Our fabulous teams have been working hard to create some fabulous projects to give you lots of inspiration.

We would love you to join us in the release hype, and the talented Christy has created two gorgeous badges that you can add to your blog so you don’t forget to join us!

For all the details and to keep up-to-date with the release head on over to

Thanks for stopping by and I think we are nearly ready for another random winner! Keep your eyes peeled.

Big Aussie squeezes.

Zoe xoxo

    Oh my god! She’s amazing! And you truly take the already awesomely stunning image to another level with your jaw-dropping colouring, Zoe! If I hadn’t seen some of your creations IRL in Magnolias shop here in Sweden, I wouldn’t believe you when you say it looks better “live”, cause better than this, well to me, it’s impossible. But now I have seen them, and I have to say your creations ARE even more awesome in reality. 🙂

    Hi Zoe, WOW. I am so excited about the merge with Tiddly Inks I can’t wait. I just love the colouring job on this image, it is fabulous and looks amazing, I would love to see it in real life though as I bet the photograph doesn’t do it much justice. Can’t wait for the release.
