Taking a Bow

     I adore this sweet image (Mo Manning) and this is the first time I've used it as a Thank You card.  I needed one on the spur of the moment and this image was lying on the desk, waiting to be colored.


My colors came from My Favorite Things.


     This time, I 'water' colored with a brush and some of my refill alcohol inks.  I added sparkle gel ink to her tutu and the gems in her hair.  I know it doesn't show up well in the photo but that was the best I could do.  I really did try to get the sparkle to show.  :-D

     I used a Fiskars corner punch on both the image and the piece behind it.  I mounted everything onto a pink card base.  The sheer ribbon was in my scrap stash and I used up what I had left.  Rather than tying a bow since I had such a small piece left after wrapping it around the card front, I simple folded it into a bow shape and added a sparkly flower to the center.  I used ribbon glue to add it to the corner of the image.
