Thousand Years Waiting

Hi, everyone!! I 'm Angela the newest member of the Sweet Pea design team.
When Lynette asked me to be on her design team I was just over the moon with excitement!!

First thing I wanted to tell you a little about myself. I am 35. I have been working for the same company for 16yrs where I work full time as an Inventory Analyst. I have been married to my husband Bill for almost almost 10 yrs. I have 3 children 2 daughter age 16 and 5, and my son is 9. I live in Tennessee. I have been scrap booking for 9yrs and stamping for about 4yrs. I love creating anything with paper!! I just love taking new pictures of my children and scrap booking them! So enough about me, here is my DT card.

For this card I used Thousand Year Waiting she is on sheet#8, plate #30. And you can go and purchase her HERE.

This is probably one of my favorite images. She is just so beautiful!! I did use a multiliner to make her eyelashes a little longer, so her eyes would stand out more. And I also went over all the black areas with the copic multiliner also. Just to make the black areas darker. I hope you love her as much as I do and you will go get her for yourself.

  5. Angela, this is stunning, very pretty. Your artwork is always pieced together perfectly.

  6. Welcome to the Team Angela! I LOVE what you did with this image. Just what is a "Multiliner" and do I NEED that?

  7. Hey everyone just wanted to stop in and say thank you for all your sweet comments!! I just love reading them!
    Connie, to answer your question about the multiliner!! It is like a felt tip pen and comes in different sizes, so you have make very skinny lines or bigger depending on the size you have. They are great for when you stamp an image and the image is faint in one area you can go back with a multiliner and trace/draw it in. Alot of people use them when they are altering an image as it will not smear when coloring with their Copics markers.
    In this image I used it to make all the stamped parts darker by going over it with my multiliner after my image was colored. And it also gave it more depth. I only have 3 sizes, but they come in alot more. The 3 sizes I have lets me do what I need to do. Here are the sizes I have ,FYI ( 0.05, 0.3 and 0.1). If anyone ever has any questions just let me know I'm not afraid to share!!
