Little peacock as a stamp


Converted the little peacock into a digital stamp this weekend. I'm still fretting over line width as I found the freebie I did - hug a cat ( to download it go to http://www.mygrafico.com/freebies/cat-hug/prod_826.html) the line to heavy for colouring - something I did not realise - and in the below post and this I made the line thinner, but now I worry may it is too thin and what if someone wants a heavier line and have only really jpg or png etc etc.Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

Oh this of course is done via the pc in totally - all expect he original sketch (which may have been also done via the pc but I can't remember now lol). The background and bird were painted - the former via the paint bucket, the latter with the airbrush took to get shadding etc, then I used atomic cupcake's destressed action and added the created effect to a new layer with the colour burn properties and reduced the tranparencies. I found some ribbon I created for an earlier scrapbook set, resized it and changed the colour, did the same thing for some tacks/ brads. Added a shadow to each element to give it (I hope) a more 3D effect and then my book mark was finished.

Hi, please don't worry. I purchased the complete set at MyGrafico and your line thickness is just fine :-).

Love your art!
