Today several of The Craft's Meow design team are showcasing Little Frieda & Lulu - My Girl. Lulu is looking on as Little Frieda finishes dressing for a party. Mirror Mirror on the wall, YOU Little Frieda are the fairest one of all! I created this card using this week's Card Patterns sketch since The Craft's Meow is sponsoring them this week - how fun, right?
Once again, just like I did on my Freida card yesterday, after coloring the image (on PaperTrey Ink's white card stock) I traced over the image lines with a fine point black pen. I like to use Copic's .25 or .35 Multi-liner pen but have also used a fine or super fine point Sharpie pen too. It makes a huge difference on images that are colored with dark Copic markers as the sharpness of the stamped lines can be dulled a bit with all the blending (not bleeding as I haven't had much of a problem with that using either PTI or Copic Xpress it card stocks) of the inks.
