I finally listed the rest of my shiny new 2.25 inch buttons on Etsy (there are a couple more but my photos were dark and I've misplaced my camera cable).

The image on the right was step 3. I flipped my scan and was able to trace the other side of the border. I tightened up a lot of the lines in the skirt and added the lace design to the parasol before inking and then sketched in a background. Step 4 is a digital thumbnail used to choose colors I will paint with (I don't always do this).

On the right is my thumbnail sketch which was only a couple inches high. I scanned it, adjusted the contrast and then printed it out the size the want to paint. I use that as reference when I draw the final drawing that will be painted. On the left is the current stage I am at. I will print this out mirrored and use it to draw the other side of the border so it ends up symmetrical.
