Well, last Sunday was my baby's birthday (my baby is now 38!!) so I made him this card. The image is from the Digi Doodle Shop and is called 'Boy and Dog'. The reason it brings memories is that when Neil was a small boy, my parents had a Retriever called Sadie and she was inseparable from my children when they were around. They could do anything with her so this image reminded me of her and how patient she was with the kids.
Anyhoo, I cut out the panel for the image with my Nesties (of course!) and distressd the edge with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The image is coloured with Copics and I very carefully kept a list of them, which is below for you. I wasn't too delighted with the colouring of the boy's hair. My son's hair was virtually white he was so fair (he also had hair then!! LOL) but conveying that in coluring an image is not easy! The papers and button are from my stash, as is the rafia. I drew the star by hand on the reverse of the Bazill card and then cut it out. I made up the sentiment from a group of clear word stamps I bought eons ago from Sir Stampalot - sorry don't know who makes them.
Copics used: Book - Y17, Y38, Y28 Jeans - B93, B95, B97 Hair - Y00, Y21, E41, E43 Socks/Shadow - W1, W3, W5 then Colourless Blender to fade out the shadow Dog - E53, E31, E33, E35 Skin - E50, E00, E11, E21, R20 T shirt - R22, R24, R27
