Here we are again!

Good morning peeps and TGIF!

This is another image from the truly talented Mo Manning, which is called 'Paul Texting' but in my mind it's Martin Texting! Martin is number 2 grandson and that's who this card is for - we had a family trip to Chester Zoo and when he wasn't looking at the animals, he was texting his friends! So you can imagine how I couldn't resist using this image - it so reminds me of him. As you can see, it's to celebrate the return to school (well at least I think his Mum is celebrating!).

The DPs are from Diane's Daughters, 7 Gypsies and the Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby pad, which is so gorgeous I thought I was very brave to cut into it LOL! The image is coloured with Copics (numbers below) and I deepened the shadows with my Faber Castell pencils, all the distressing is with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and the buttons are a mixture from my stash.

Skin: E000, E00, E21, R11, R20

Shoes: E41, E43

I do hope you like this one and be brave, there's only one more to go in the 'Back to School' series!

By for now,
