A Card is Born

I am just going to show you the evolution of a thank you card I made using one of my "little girl" sketches.
She started as a sketch in my book,
I adjusted the contrast, cropped her and printed her in Photoshop,
Then I coloured her, cut her out and added her to a card front.

I find by using my sketches in my cards, I am liking card making again.
Thanks for visiting!

Angel Sketch

Since I got "hooked" on drawing, I have taken my sketch book everywhere.  The other day before work, I drew this large-headed angel.

Her nose is a tiny bit harsh but I like her just the same.  I am not sure if I will paint her or not.    I think I might finish her and use her on a journalling page.
See you later!

The Christmas Cat

I am having so much fun painting these little girls.  This one is in her jammies and sees a kitten for Christmas.

These characters are a great way to practice my face drawing and whimsical bodies.  I am especially happy with the softness of her face and the cute pig tails.  Also, I have never drawn a whimsical animal and I think the cat turned out sweet.

Another Christmas Whimsy

Hi again!
I do not know why but I LOVE whimsical characters and am immersing myself in learning how to draw them.
Here is the second of my Christmas whimsy pictures.  This one is definitely going to be my Christmas card.
I have to get some better water color crayons as I have nothing which is dark enough blue for night sky.  I also want some more colors.  I will have to order neo colors.
I really like the face on this girl.  I hope you do as well.
Thanks for visiting!
