Oh Baby!

I have quite a few more cards to post today... so I had better get started!  This first one is for the Mo Manning Digital Pencil 2 Challenge (number 72) which is Oh Baby.  Mo Manning draws the most beautiful babies and toddlers around, so it's always a pleasure to colour one of her images.

I wasn't very happy with my colour choices for this one when I originally coloured it as it looked a bit bland, but I went over the cardigan with blue greens to brighten it up a bit and I think it looks better now.

The papers are from October Afternoon.  The seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl and the sentiment is cobbled together from the Critters and Cogs sentiment set by Pollycraft.  The image is coloured with copics (unfortunately I didnt keep a record of the numbers).

Happy Tuesday!

Hi's funny that you said you weren't pleased with your colors...because I was just thinking how much I love the "non-traditional" baby card colors you used! I'm with you, tho...Mo makes the most adorable baby images! I love 'em all!! Your coloring and shading is so pretty, girl...and I think the blue-green you used for the top of her dress is striking!! I love it! I'm so glad you decided to join us thie weeks at Mo's! Pat Frank
