Did You Miss Me?

Hi Guys!
Wow...three days and I haven't posted....yes, I'm still alive.Now the question: Did you miss me?  lol
 Weekends are always hectic. But I did color! Sunday night I colored a couple of Mo Mannings while watching "the Scarlet Pimpernell".
 This is one of them. 

First can I just say it is NEVER OK to draw on walls, allright children?
 That is never cute ..... Especially if you rent.
and a close up.
My only peeve with this picture is it looks like he has one arm on backwards...is it just me?

It reminds me of when I was little and my Barbie doll's arms would pop off (usually after my sister got sick of playing them with me and would start "killing off" the characters) and then I'd try to put them back together again with limited success......

My recipe is:
Image: Mo Manning
Colors: Prismacolors , Graphitint pencils, and copics (for skin)
Papers: mainly DCWV
Bling: Recollection and Deja Views

And speaking of bling, here are some close ups of the blingy bits..



So I have a few challenges I would like to enter this in.
 I tried my best to make it fit the criteria. I do realize that I have a bit of blue on my card and the color challenges don't mention blue but I just had to add it so that it would "make sense" so feel free to delete me if you think I'm too far off the target. But you did say that its ok if I don't have the exact colors so long as I had fun so I did do that right! lol
(even if this card was a pain in the heiny!)
But still comment, ok, cos that's the whole reason I enter these things! lol

Stamp Something: Spots and Stripes
Totally Papercrafts: Lets go dotty
Paper Sundaes: Min. of 3 different embellies
Paper Players: Olive, Mustard, Red and Brown
Sketch Saturday: sketch (I turned it upside down)
Allsorts: Autumn colors
Incy Wincy: red, yellow, brown and green

Well, that's all I have for today. Thanks so much for all your support and sweet comments.

Gorgeous card as usual. I have this image, too and I've used him a couple of times. I had not noticed the arm before; but NOW I Do! LOL! Oh, and the little PB girl with the chubby legs, is meant to look like a pudgey little toddler I think, but her legs do kinda "pop" out at you. (And it didn't help that I drew attention to it with the ankle bracelet. Lol) Talk to you again. Hugs, dj

Mind you, when my boys were younger, I used to draw on their walls. Characters from Asterix, Winnie the Pooh, Aristocats, NHL team badges. It was FUN :)

It is nice to see your creation. Very very good subject, because the answer is of course "yes".

Colouring is again amzing, those jeans are "wow". Using shadows makes the jumper look so real. I love your artwork.

Love that image, reminds me of Pea at age of three crayoning on two walls of the living room and half way upstairs, all kind of absent mindedly as she was walking along lol. I think I even laughed at the time !! really like your colours and the sketch too. I must be brave and try out my skin coloured pens.

Nancy said...

Adorable card! I love your coloring. The colors are perfect. I think his thumb is pointing in the right direction. His sleeve looks a little awkward though LOL. I never would have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it! Thanks for playing along with the Critter Sketch Challenge.

Dorcas this is jaw dropping gorgeous. I could look at your cards forever. I usually sit and go over each detail and try to figure out how you did it all. I also would love to know how you figure out what challenges to play with when you make your cards. Do you have a list to share. Could you email me your list if you don't mind sharing. I always make cards but never submit anything. This is so wonderful and Mo should be happy that you do up her images so beautifully. Hugs.
