I live in Louisville Kentucky and have just finished my first ever really intense March Madness with UoL making it to the Final 4 (Yay Cardinals); only to lose to Kentucky. My husband and his brother were on opposing sides. Neighbors against neighor; two dialysis patients came to blows. In my house texts flew back and forth, bets were placed, jerseys donned. I have never seen anything like it. Needless to say there is no joy here in Mudville, the mighty Cardinals did not win. And so my husband must pay up and this is the card I made to go with his wager.

There was not a Copic used to color this…really you say…really. I colored this digital image entirely with distress ink. I started by printing the image on watercolor paper. I had previously created a custom distress ink palette with the reinkers. Then using normal water coloring process I painstakingly painted each area with distress reinkers and water. I found to minimize bleeding you need to dry each area with your heat gun before moving on to the next area. 
oh my goodness close-up
I used Tea Dye for her skin,  Barn door for her bow, dress and shoes. I used Tatter Rose for her cheeks and mouth. Her hair is Walnut Stain. The background is a digital image. After I finished coloring my image on the watercolor paper I scanned it into my computer to create the background, and used Distress Ink to distress the edges. And there she is in all her cardinal red glory…Oh My Goodness isn’t she a riot.

I am giving away the digital image shown above. In order to win this image you simply have to leave a comment. Easy Peasy right! Leave a comment here by Sunday, April 15th at 11:59pm (Louisville, KY time).

Please take the opportunity to visit all the designers and see what they have come up with and maybe win some other prizes!
Grand Prize - Our grand prize winner will receive 5 digital Images from Robert Jackson and a $15.00  Oozak Gift Certificate.
