This is what I came up with, using sketch #1 by Kristina Werner:
It says "a little GIRL" in Swedish and is going to be sent to my former co-worker who just had a little baby girl! Always love when you can combine fun with the need-to-do stuff!
Here's a close-up of the coloring. Actually this is a version of a technique I tried out today for the first time. I've done it before, but never with Distress Ink Colors. I've used a blender pen to pick up the Distress Inks, just like Kristina did in her video, and found out that it works fabulous! Excellent when you don't want to mess with water and brushes - and much faster too! Love it!
