Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Water Colour Wednesday - Friend Like You

Hi Everybody,

I love this image and I could not resist giving her a pretty floral dress to wear.  And don't you just love that the handbag matches her slippers.??

Adding clothes or changing the look of those already drawn onto the characters is so much fun and if you haven't tried it you are missing out.

I added Glossy Accents to her glasses to make them shine like lenses

It doesn't matter if you can draw or not as nothing is too fancy to achieve.

Just grab that pen and doodle away and you will be pleased and surprised at what you can come up with.

Have a look at last weeks image also as he too has been altered for a fun look ... Man and His Dog !!

This is a digital image from the CD The Next Big Thing from Just Inklined and as all companies do they have moved on and it is no longer available.

I wouldn't part with my copy for anything as there is some really fantastic characters on the disc to play with.

You may be lucky and find one on EBay that someone wants to sell on but I think you will need to search for it

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    What a cute card. Looks a bit like me on a good day haha. Seriously though I love the way you alter images to give them a completely different look. So much imagination - I wish I was half as imaginative as you

    What a fun card. Love the old lady with her Zimmer frame. I have a set of the wrinkles. But never seem to be able to find anything like this CD.

  10. Lovely card, Christina!
    And the old lady is just adorable :))

  11. Hi Christina,
    WooHoo...I just managed to get a copy of the CD on eBay for the princely sum of £6.99 so I'm well pleased. I may have been able to find another somewhere if I really searched for it but I'm just happy to be able to get one so easily as I love the illustrations that you use from your copy :).
    I love this delightful little old lady. Isn't that typical, there she is with her handbag over her arm, her hat on, wearing her best dress...and she still has her slippers on lol. You've done a wonderful job with decorating her dress :)

  16. I have this disc, and I wouldn't part with mine either! I have most of their cd's/dvd's , and adore everything on them! I haven't thought of giving this image a go though, but i have the perfect idea who to colour it for, now that I have seen your fab version! Thanks for the inspiration, it will be a really fun project for me!
