Thanks Little Friends

I started working on these cute, simple little note cards late yesterday afternoon. Didn't get a chance to glue them together until this morning though because Ross got home just in time for us to run to the ballpark to watch our nephew play. I haven't used this set in quite some time. It's called Little Friends and has been in the last few TAC catty's. The images just make me smile! I used this sketch by Heather. The image is stamped on watercolor paper with Palette Burnt Umber. I colored it in with Pastel Tombow markers and went over it with a Niji waterbrush to give it a watercolor feel. I took a closeup to show y'all the little flower. I colored it in using the Pearlescent Watercolor Palette from TAC. Gave it a nice, subtle shimmer. Then I dotted the center with my white gel pen. To make the image stand out more, I sponged the edges with Walnut Distress ink. Quick and simple card, but I think they make a cute Spring thank you. Remember I am a TAC demo and I do have a website you can look at or even place orders on. Just let me know if you are interested or have any questions!!!
