For my card today, I've used the Bugaboo Stamps image called Sick Girl. I think it's never a bad idea to keep a few 'get well' cards handy, especially moving into the cold months of winter! I wasn't sure what I thought of this image when I first saw it, but I really wanted to bring it to life, and practiced a lot of my PSE techniques for shadows when I colored her in.
One thing about coloring digitally that is a challenge for me, always, is that I lose some luminosity when I print. My printer is a photo printer, but it just doesn't handle the subtle shades nearly as well as I'd like. Here's what this image looks like on a screen:

One more thing, I am now assisting the DT Coordinator with some of the more routine things at Catch the Bug Blog to fill in some time for our wonderful Ms. Min, who is expecting Baby #1, and is happily preparing for the arrival!
