A budding little picasso perhaps

So lets get down to the arty stuff, right - here is a card that was an absolute pleasure to create:

As you can see I decorated the envelope again, I just splodged on some distress ink.  Oh dear, I need to practice with those little spongy distress tools - there must be a knack to it (sadly I haven't found it yet)

Now, my version looks a little different when compared to the stamp...........adding more detail to the eyes and giving her a mouth as well as using the no lines technique adds a touch of realism to the original image.

Here is a picture of the outside, simple and clean - just letting the image be the focal point.

And here is the inside of the card decorated with distress ink and the paintbrush from Tim Holtz Crazy things collection.

Wow!!! I just started following your blog recently and boy oh boy am I glad I did. The details you added to this image are fantastic. I kept scrolling back and forth in awe. I adore how you decorate the inside and the envelope, too. I get frustrated sometimes inking with the sponges. I'm told...light pressure (like barely pressing onto the paper) and lots of layers of color. Bur seriously, yours looks great to me. The little artist...amazing! Thanks so much for sharing.

Fantastic colouring (as always) you seem to achieve a muted effect with your colours - is that from going over the copics with pencils??? Hope you dont mind me asking xx
