Good Thursday Afternoon!

I managed to obtain one of the new fantastic SWEETIE PIE images and created this card. As the stamps are not quite available YET from Phebe The Town Scrapper, I printed the image on watercolour paper. I realized watercolours were going to be pretty tricky to use when painting an image that has printed with ink from the printer, but yikes!!! You may have noticed the ink from Maggie's freckles on her left cheek bled, as well as in a few less obvious places. Can't wait until the stamps come in and I can use my STAZ ON JET BLACK ink!

Card Details:
  • stamp-image is HUMBLE PIE'S SWEETIE PIE, "Maggie with Strawberry", sentiment is Amy R.'s "Beach Sentiments"

Maggie's image was printed on Fabriano 140 lbs cold pressed Watercolour paper. She was painted using Nicholson's Peerless Transparent Watercolour sheets and Reeves Watercolour Pencils. Maggie's hair was given some shine thanks to Judi Kin's Diamond Glaze. The sparkle on her sandals and hairbands was created using Crystal Stickles. The sentiment was inked-up with VersaFine Onyx Black.
