Here is a card I created with this adorable tea angel image from High Hopes. Being a big tea drinker--I was immediately drawn to this image. I just love Crissy's drawings.
The image is stamped in brilliance black ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils and Odorless mineral spirits for blending. You can see a tutorial here on this technique.
I didn't use any ribbon on this card (gasp!)..instead, I used the flowers to create an embellishment where I would have tied ribbon.
Isn't she cute?
Here is a close up image of the coloring and flower accents.
