It’s Throwback Thursday today at Tiddly Inks, so today, I get have some crafty fun with one of the older images at Tiddly Inks!
As the mom of a four year old little gal who wears glasses, I have to admit that I am partial to any stamped image that features a cutie in glasses (especially if it doesn’t portray one of the “nerdy” stereotypes). The character Minnie was actually one of the first images I feel in love with at Tiddly Inks, so I know that this cutie was going to be the star of this Throwback Thursday.
Looking back at my cards recently, I also noticed that I seem to be getting a bit lazy in my base card colour choice. So many of my card bases have been white lately, so I decided to try something a bit bolder. I actually love the contrast of the back with the bright colours on the card. I think I need to work with the darker card bases more often!
Oh, and one last little tidbit – When I was colouring up Minnie, I decided to make her glasses look shiny. At first, I was going to tackle this by colouring in some highlights, but then decided to try using a bit of Glossy Accents instead. I wasn’t sure how it would react with my alcohol markers, but it worked perfectly! I sure love how this cutie turned out!
Well, that’s it for me today! Thanks for stopping by!
