Got the Flu?


Because it seems like the Flu is a never ending winter misery, I thought that I would make this card bright and cheery for anyone who is down for the count with the flu bug...or should I say huggabugg ;) This sweet image is from Stamping Bella and is called Fluey Huggabugg. When I first saw her in the store, I knew that this little sick bug would be coming to live with me very soon :)



This little cutie has been water coloured with tombow markers and then popped up to become dimensional. I sponged the background in and then added some shading with some prisma pencils and gamsol to create some ground for her to sit on. Her wings have a heavy duty coat of stickles on them, mostly because stickles make me happy and if they make me happy then they are sure to put a smile on a person who needs some night time, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy hear, fever, so-you-can-rest medicine ;0)

I just can't get over how good your colouring is!! The depth and vibrancy is just unreal - maybe I should try watercolour markers!!
