A Special Tiddly Tuesday - Be Bold

Happy Tuesday thoughts!! :) Welcome back!

I drew this little dancer 6 or 7 months ago, but never really did anything with her until this weekend...so please meet a delayed, but cute and quirky ballerina. This image started out with my daughter dressing up in a feathered mask---she loves masks and gets a new one at Halloween (about the time I drew this LOL). She prefers the masks to be fancy and she then wore one with feathers sticking up everywhere and that led to this idea....
But after I colored it, Little Bit informed me that I should have colored the feathers as peacock tail feathers....and made a blue tutu since it is her very favorite color....I mean, come on mom, grey is ugggglllyyyy.  Na-uh!!!, say I!! It is eeeelllleegggant! LOL

The sample also includes the free sentiment that comes with the image, but it will be in black type, not white. This sample was hand colored with Copics and then mixed up with some digital coloring in the background.

So please meet the "improperly" colored Be Bold, Be You Ballerina
(a digital stamp 300 dpi line art that is ready to be printed and colored. :D )

Annie Rose made this stunning sample!
And Lou made this adorable book (she actually used a Tiddly Inks paper in there too)
And totally off topic, a few days ago, we had Melissa the Birthday Bear make an appearance for our very own Melissa's birthday...
Wow...that is a lot going on, but we are not done yet...we saved the best for last.

So what makes this Tiddly Tuesday especially special? Well, we have some new faces to introduce to you. Last month we had quite a few guests join us for the birthday celebration and we were able to talk a few of them into joining the team....We are very proud to introduce (or re-introduce) 3 new and very delightful ladies who are now Tiddly Inkers:

Aren't they amazing?? If you want to visit all our DT members on the challenge blog, hop on over and get inspired by our whole team....I am so lucky to have such talented ladies working with the Tiddly images....I never get tired of seeing their creations. :)
