COLORMAPS have finally arrived!

Well.. We finally figured out how to link them to an image online LOL.. took about 3 months.

What is a Colormap?  A Colormap is basically a map of our images and which Copic marker colors Elaineabella used when she coloured them.  It is not just exclusive to Copics, however.  Looking at these maps can inspire you to use the color combinations in any medium you use when coloring our images!  That’s what I love so much about these little treasures!

threeamigasB&W

For more information on how you are eligible to receive these colormaps, read HERE

Now these colormaps are available for current images only.  I will be going through orders from October onwards  and sending you your color maps based on the orders you placed.  This is a WORK IN PROGRESS LOL and will take me a while to complete.  so please bear with me!

I can’t wait for you tol see how useful these Colormaps are!

I hope you enjoy them!

MWAH

Em

It’s BELLARIFIC FRIDAY SISTAHS!

Last sale of 2014! Happy Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday and HAPPY BELLARIFIC FRIDAY! :)

Hiya sistahs!

It’s snowing here in Toronto, and what better way of cheering ME up is to make my sistahs excited and HAPPY :).  This is our first REAL American Thanksgiving having moved to the U.S in October so we wanted to celebrate for REALS.   We are having our last sale of 2014 where the WHOLE STORE is 20% off!!  This is a great opportunity to stock up for yourself, or for family and friends :)

Simply use coupon code: appreciate2014 at the end of your order and *POOF* 20% off the total will disappear.  I am now trying this code business with my weight.  If I enter my ideal weight will it *POOF* and disappear too? hmph.   So I hope you take advantage and enjoy taking advantage of this discount as much as I enjoy giving it :)

And we have LOTS to look forward to in January.  I have a BRAND NEW line coming out which you will F-A-I-N-T and S-W-O-O-N over.  I promise…  It’s insanely adorable.  Trust da bella ok?
