Mo’s Digital Challenge – Babies plus ribbon or bows.

Hi everyone, and first of all I would like to thank the lovely ladies at I Love Promarkers for having the faith in me to choose me as their Guest Designer for June. I am totally thrilled!
I hope this card, and the ones to follow don’t let you down.

So, as you can see I have used this adorable cherub drawn by Mo sitting in his paddling pool and I have chosen to call him Sam for some totally unknown reason. Following the colour scheme chosen by Inlinks, he has been coloured in with my Promarkers and the water (I do hope you can see it well enough in the photos), has been made all shiny and hopefully water-like with the use of Glossy Accents.

The two papers I chose to use are the sandy hand prints from Crafter’s Companion and a green weave from HOTP and these have been sewn onto the white card ground. I have also used white card to create the 3 buttons and hopefully my Promarkers have given the dimension of a real button. The ribbon is from my stash.

What fun I have had chasing the sun around the house to photograph this card. Not that I am complaining that the sun is back, far from it, but it never shines on the spot I need it to! LOL....and then to make matters worse, when I came to add my picture to the blog I found that I had accidentally erased it, by which time the sun had vanished from our house entirely so I hope the photo is OK.

Well, that is all for today I think and I would really appreciate it if you could leave me a comment as you browse through blog-land and I thank you for it in advance.
