SquiggleFly's New Releases

Today marks Squigglefly 's  1st release for 2010.
I am so excited about this new design team that I couldn't wait to get started on my cards.
This new image is called Rag Time Reader (artist: Cheryl Alger), I think  you will all agree with me when I say she's just gorgeous.

To create this card, I simply made the image the size I wanted, then printed it out on my computer printer. Next I coloured (as normal) with my favourite Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Odourless mineral spirits.
The finished card is square about 6"x6". The cardstock is Bazzill and the designer paper is from Basic Grey's 'two scoops' pad.
I finished off with a co-ordinating paper flower and a white heart 'sprinkle'.
Keep an eye out on my blog for the release of these sprinkles (this is a sneak peek, aren't they fabulous, I just know you will all want some)

Sprinkles available from Annabelle Stamps

Until Next Time
Inking of you All

Hi Shell, do you heat set the image first? Mine is bleeding...

Michelle, your coloring on this is just exquisite. I love the softness. The paper is lovely and you've coordinated everything so perfectly! I'm so glad you are on the Squigglefly team!

Dear Anonymus,
I do not heat set my images, they do sit for an or so before I get to colouring them in.
my printer is inkjet, the cardstock is unknown, I buy it from a store here in Canberra in bulk but it has no name. I also found SU whisper white is horrible to use.
