I learned the colored pencils (first I used white then silver) did not work with this thick board (my lines look all fuzzy since I had to work to engrave them):
the ink lines were sharp and though the card might seem plain like the first, the design was growing on me.
then spray made it look like this (ew)
Oh what a pretty girl!
I could not wait to get my hands on her and fill her with color!
Then spray made her look like this (more ew! and a sad face!)
This was actually the first card I did but saved it for last because it was the one I decided to trade.
Even though its not as perfect as I wanted it to be, I still liked it. I matted it, included some of my art cards and mailed it off today (let it go into the universe).
Bye bye spiral goddess. Hopefully the next time we meet I will treat you as a better muse!
