Sentimental Sundays ~ Childhood / Enter Baby Tex

Hi again everyone!
Today is my second post so scroll down for my first. (if you want to!)
This week's challenge at Sentimental Sunday's is "Childhood" (plus a sentiment) which is loads of fun!
Love this Mo image called Tex, available here at Mo's shop.
The sentiments I am using for both cards are available from Raindrop Echo Designs.
So this is the scoop.
I loved this image so much that I had to work it up in two completely different ways. One colored on white paper and the other on Kraft. First, the white.
I'm using Prismacolors throughout.

And now the Kraft background:

By the way, if you're just coming here for the first time, you can see Baby tex (Kraft version) being "born" if you click here. Lots of fun!

OK, I really think I'm done for the day now! Thanks for coming by, you can go have your nap now. :-)

These cards (one or both) qualifies for the following challenges:

Pixie Dust: boys card
Cute Card Thursday: anythinggoes
Creative Belli: forgotten embellies (mesh and cardboard buckle)
AI factory: die cuts

I'm totally torn, I don't know which I like best. Love the muted tones of the first and the bold of the second...think I'm leaning slightly more to the second - I just love the papers and embellies. Boy, you're a busy girl. Stunning work as always. Hugs lin

This is adorable Dorcas!!

Both are great! That image is too cute either way!

Annika said...

OK, my fave is the craft one. There's something about the warmth and depth of kraft combined with your colouring that really makes the image come to life!! And the texture and the design of the card itself is just amazing - total 10 from 10!

Linda Carson said...

Oh what priceless artwork! Love both looks of this image!

Andrea Ewen said...

Fab coloring like always, Dorcas! That image is adorable! I can't say as I've quite seen anything like it before. Certainly makes you chuckle! Awesome job with your layout and bling. I think I like the second card more with those asymmetrical designs. Adds super dimension!
