TMS#32: Wee Henry Cupid

Hello! Once I saw Melissa's sketch for this week, I had to get right to it! I bought a new digi stamp yesterday and was so excited to see that it would be perfect for this sketch.... I think "Wee Henry Cupid" from Hambo Stamps is just the cutest! He just makes me smile.... Is it the impish grin, his scraggly hair or his pudgy toes? Not sure, I just love him though!
I did have a bit of trouble with this card, though.... Henry is a digi image and was easy to resize and print; I had no trouble coloring him with Prismas/Goo Gone. The trouble came when I went to apply the glitter.... All went well with his red arrows, but when I got to his wings the ink bled. I really wasn't going for blue wings! They were supposed to be pristine white! Darn it! I'm a bit sad about this because I REALLY like glitter! No kidding! If anybody out there has any tips for me, please share them...thanks.
Digi Image: Hambo Stamps

I hope to have some more Wee Henry cards for you soon!
Thanks for stopping by; have a great night!

Great card! I do have a suggestion about the ink, but you may not like it. You could try sprinkling embossing powder on as it comes out of the printer and heat embossing the ink.

Too cute! Sweet, funny cupid and the blue tint to his wings looks great to me. Awesome DP, perfect for the holiday. You are way ahead of me with this sketch!!

Great take on the sketch and he goes perfectly with it, I agree. His wings look fine in your picture, but the only thing I can think of similar to what was already mentioned is just take your heat gun and make sure the ink is all set before you start, with or without embossing powder.
