Dare to be different

The Rick St.dennis freebie challenge image this month is the super cute Baby Bacchus.
He was attached to the newsletter,  to sign up for the newsletter see here.  If you missed it, you can find this little guy in Rick's Zibbet shop.
The freebie challenge starts today on the Sparkle and Glitter blog, you will also find a lot of insiration from my fellow teamies there
We all coloured the digi and made a project out of him.

Baby Bacchus is a little Satyr,so he is partly goat, and it would be obvious to make his furry legs brown, or another goat colour. But cause of his name Bacchus, who is the god of wine, I thought to make him look sparkly and colourful , I think that part worked out fine :-)

I really like how he turned out with his rainbow coloured legs and hair, next was the AJ page I wanted to make.
The plan was to add some kind of wine quote, but after colouring it just had to be "Dare to be different"

The background is a Gelli print, the flowers are a Deco Art Americana mixed media stencil Oopsy Daisy.
The  paint used is Americana acrylics (colours: Baby blue, Lilac, Carousel Pink, Tangerine)
The letters (except the "different" cause that' a marker) are foam stamps (Making Memories)  and Americana acrylics Lamp Black.

Below a closer look at the Rick St.dennis image
