Ciao Bell, my first digital image
I so admire the people that draw the digital images, and don't know how many times I've given it a try. A couple weeks ago I had this image wiggling around in my brain and wondered if I could actually get it on paper. One night I took my tablet to bed and just doodled around for awhile and then set her in motion. After MANY adjustments I finally got the image, as my mind's eye saw it. So I scanned it into my PC, this is 50% smaller than the original. I colored her with felt pens. The background was stamped with flourishes from Ikadinkado stamps. The lay out is for the Card Patterns Sketch 158 ( see sketch below) check it out here:
The very pretty ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, my monthly stash. LOL The flower is a grungie I made from the background paper and using soft rose in to darken it. The Ciao Bella was the first thought I had when I finished the drawing (funny I'm not Italian) Now I am wondering if I can do it again.
So here is the sketch I followed.
Thanks for stopping in and taking a look. Let me know what you think.
