Bday present for mom

So my mom loves sun faces and the quote "Not all those who wander are lost.". Sooo, I made her this bag for her birthday:

Now that her birthday is over, I figured I could post the pics! I drew it up on the computer, printed it, used Citra Solv to transfer it to fabric, colored it with Inktense pencils.

And this is why I went Citra Solv not Mod Podge. Mod Podge did get me much brighter results, but I found it so much tougher to work with. A thin coat left to dry overnight. It started to peel fine. The bottom right corner was a disaster. Plus I'd have to rub and rub and rub the remaining residual glue off and it'd still have a stained look on the fabric that had no ink and be too stiff on inked. Granted it was my first attempt but it was such a pain.
