Sassy Studio Designs Pina Colada Pin Up

Card Tip:

I wanted the pin up aspect of this image to really jump so I printed one version of the image on standard card stock and coloured it using water colour crayons for a soft effect. I then cropped the image and printed it again on copic express card stock and coloured it in with copics.
