 Isn't that an awesome prize for one lucky person? We hope that you like our creations!

 Now here is a some information about Miranda!

My name is Miranda van den Bosch and I’m 46 years old. I have been drawing nearly all my life. At the age of 4 I was making drawings on a blackboard, but because my parents thought it was a pity that I had to erase all my drawings they got me paper and colour pencils. And I’ve never stopped drawing since. When I was little I used to draw portraits and Disney characters. After that I started to draw fairies and dragons. In time, I joined an art group and learned to draw nudes and still life portraits too. When I was in my 30ties I became interested in birds and started to draw them as well. And last year I published my first children’s book. It’s an ABC of birds and 26 birds tell you about birdlife in general. A good friend of mine wrote the text. About 2 years ago, I discovered card making and how I could use stamps with my colouring technique and style. I really enjoy colouring up all the cute images with watercolour or with regular colour pencils. Every week I discover new brands of stamps and I just decided to draw some digi stamps to see if other people liked them. A new world of being creative is opening up for me.
