Here come the Sons

I received some new stamps in the mail yesterday and had to ink this one up straight away! I have a bit of a problem you see - if I find any images with little boys in it - I have to have them. This one in particular. The image is a Marianne Design stamp from the Eline's Babies collection. I fell in love with it. Put a couple of little teeth on the baby and they are my boys. Its an obsession.

So I coloured the little darlinngs in Copics (see the end of the post for which colours). I added some crystal effects to the sun for some shine. The checked background is stamped with my Darkroom Door stamp and "patchworked".

The sketch is The Pink Elephant challenges #59. And the other challenge I am entering with this card is Crafty Creations #60 - Babies and Stamp Something - Distressed Somethings

More sponged clouds... my other new obsession..

Ok - my Copic list is (its a big one!):
Toddler skin - E11, E00, E000, R20, 0
Baby skin - E21, E00, E000, R20, 0 (if there is more than one 'person' in an image I like to do them with slightly different skin tone)
Hair - E31, YR20, Y23
Shoes - E31, E34, C5, C3, C1
Wagon - E31, E34, C5
Jeans - B21, B23
Shirt - YG 23, 0
Sun - Y21, Y38
Ground - G12
