New Release from The East Wind.

Here's a lovely new release from The East Wind called Gumiho, Nine Tailed Fox. This mythical figure is popular in Asian cultures and is known by several names. Unky, the artist behind The East Wind, is Korean and this month she is celebrating her heritage with all Korean inspired designs.  All 4 can be purchased HERE for one low price during the month of February.  I tried to  create a tranquil environment for this lovely stamp using paper from K&Co, Weeping Willow Branches die cut from Poppystamps and butterflies from a Martha Stewart punch.  The gorgeous hand dyed crinkle ribbon, reminiscent of the stream she's sitting beside, is from the Mermaid's Tale Second Edition at DL.Art.  No need for a bow, it just laid so nicely.

Here's a closeup of Gumiho.  She's colored with Copics, but I had a bit of trouble with the blending on her dress because my markers were low on ink.  Wouldn't you know the refills just came in today's mail?  I tried to make the overlay look sheer by coloring over with white Prismacolor pencil so you could still see the suggestion of the color underneath. The sentiment is an ancient rub on and I was pleased that it still worked. I've tried a number of them in my stash recently that I had to toss because they no longer transferred without crumbling.  I thought the image would be lovely for a friendship or thinking of you card.

Although we are no longer having FB challenges, the current blog challenge, Love and Romance, at The East Wind is still open.

Here are of all the important links you need.

I am entering this in the DL.Art February Linky Challenge, As You Like It Ribbon or Lace and Why (I prefer ribbon because it is more versatile and works for both masculine and feminine projects), Crafty Girls February AG, and Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #51 AG.
