Hello blog friends! Welcome to my little place again! Pull up a chair and stay a while.
Today I have a card using a sweet image from Mo's called I Love It. He is such a sweet baby and he was so much fun to color (not to mention the fact I haven't colored an image in over a week and I really missed it!).
His hair had me a little puzzled. It's not too bad if you don't look to close, just glance at it....it looks better that way! I just wasn't quite sure where to put the highlights and shadows. And I sort of hate looking at how other people color images...it feels like cheating. So, next time maybe I'll do a little better. (Oh, and I used my Prismacolor pencils for him.)
I used my own sketch. I have really been thinking about using up my scraps of paper lately. I'm also a quilter and my favorite quilts to make happen to be scrap quilts. I cut strips of paper and zig-zagged them to a paper foundation. I made my little boy image into a tag that was double matted. I stapled a small scrap of ribbon to the top. I used another ribbon on the side. I threaded some pearl cotton through the knot and added some beads from my stash. The flat round ones have snowflakes on them.
I made the sentiment on my computer.
Here you can see the great DP from K&Co called Secret Santa.
On the back you can see how I pieced the paper. I also stamped the edges of all the layers with a snowflake stamp and inked the edges with the same dark green.
I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Mo's Digital Challenge Blog - Love is All Around
Cute Card Thursday - Tags
Digi Tuesday - Child's Play
I think that's about it. Thanks for taking a peek!
Blessings & Hugs,
