A wee hop

Today is the day we've been waiting for - the gorgeous new Sylvia Zet images are being released by SCACD Stamps! There are EIGHT fantastic and utterly adorable images, all exclusive to SCACD Stamps in yummy red rubber, and they are all available now.
The stamps are all now available, and if you just have to have them all, you can grab them in discounted sets!
UK/Europe: You will find the stamps in the Sylvia Zet section at Quixotic Paperie HERE.
To celebrate, we've got a hop for you today, filled with inspiration from the SCACD and Quixotic Paperie design teams PLUS some special guests! We hope you will hop along with us as we introduce you to Loli & Shellie, Poppy and the rest of their friends!

You should have hopped here from Mary Johnson's blog. If you're just joining us and would like to start the hop at the beginning, then pop back to the start over at ELAINE HUGHES' BLOG.

A complete hop list can be found over on the SCACD Store Blog.

I got a beautiful stamped called Hope to play with. And play I did - it was my first time to attempt pencil layering on hot-pressed white watercolour paper.


 I used a mixture of different pencils - Derwent Drawing Pencils, Derwent Coloursoft (have about  of those, lol), Prismacolor & Faber-Castell Polychromos (good for details). I stamped image with Memento London Fog but now wish I had chosen something lighter, the stamp lines are still a bit too strong. PLEASE don't look for the light source on that one - I must have got a bit confused halfway through, now that I look at it.
 I didn't want to overpower the image and kept the layout very simple. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends pad.
Your next stop on the hop is Suzanne Dean's blog. Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy hopping with us today!
