As Per our Stampotique Team Captain....
Today we are sharing with you the release of the Kira Nichols new images. You know her from creating the adorable little monsters and she's got a few more up her sleeve to share with us.
Hop along with some of the design team today to see some of Kira's new images and come back and let us know what some of your favorites are. Stick with us until the final reveal on Wednesday and one of you might be rewarded with some goodies.
Kira is sharing one of her creations here as well as on her blog so make sure to end your hop over at her blog. Look at this line-up, could they be any cuter?

Background Tutorial for Goat Monster...This background was done using Yupo: Watercolor paper, Adirondack Alcohol inks and Adirondack Blending solution, Citrasolv. Basically you are painting with Alcohol inks.
Cut down your Yupo paper to size.
By taking a paper towel and moistening with Citrasolv.
Create the sky the upper 3rd of the paper.
Place a few drops of different Alcohol inks to the paper towel. I used oranges, yellows and peach.
Wipe the colors onto the Yupo paper, working across the page from left to right.
Keep at it until you get the look you like.
Creating the mountains. Take a 1/2" paintbrush with the alcohol inks in blues and purples swipe across the page using a squiggle motion.
Using a small round brush and green alcohol inks dab vertical lines across the page to create the look of a field. Continue to add layers of ink and using Blending solution to soften or blend colors.
Take small round brush dab into Blending solution and create white spaces for the poppies to go in the field. Then taking a red alcohol ink to create the poppies. Keep in mind that the poppies closer to your mountains are going to be smaller dots and the poppies closer to the bottom of your page will look more like flowers.
