Just for Fun

For those of you who've known me for a long time, know that one of my businesses was hand painting t-shirts. I did this for about 9 years before I gave up. Anyway, my designs were primarily these stick figure kids. The other week as I was stamping and coloring, I had a funny thought pop into my head and I said, why not...just for fun, I'm gonna draw one of my characters, color it and make a card..Voila! here it is! I kind of like the way it turned out. I also found out that drawing it out using a fine point sharpie pen and then coloring them with copic pens are not a good combination because the ink bled a little. This was just for fun anyway, so we'll see if I feel like drawing more. Here's a close up...don't look too good, you might see my smudges...haha!
Thanks for your visit today. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I'm feeling better and told myself to go to bed early!! Still working on my class kits and updating my one card swap list!
Let me know what you think of my little girl here...I'd love to get feedback.

You draw so well. The girl that you drew is so cute. If you start hand painting t-shirts again I would definitely be purchasing them.

Hi Teri!
She is soooooo cute! I wish you were still making shirts! I think you should make a rubber stamp or digistamp line.
Feel better soon!

Whaaat?? You had another hidden talent. You never fail to amaze. The girl is too cute!!! You need to get together with my mom, who used to silk screen t-shirts with a lot of greenery. I used to be her walking advertisement. So anytime you are ready, I'll help you out to restart your business. :)
