Cards and Digital Images

Yup, you read right....digital images. I did something I thought I would never do...buy some digital images. But after seeing some Home Grown images by Sugar Nellie, I couldn't help myself. Here are 2 of the first images I purchased, called Faith. One image is of her standing, and the other is a close-up of her face.
.
Card Sizes: 4.25" x 5.5"

Inside:
What a cutie-patootie. I had seen these images while blog surfing, but it didn't occur to me that I would be able to print them on my printer. Whenever I print something, if a drop of water lands on the paper the ink immediately runs. Many days later without thinking, I printed my Copic Colour Chart off the computer and was filling in the squares. All of a sudden I realized that I was colouring something from my printer and the lines were not smearing, like with water. So I took the plunge and bought an image to try...and it worked!!!
.
