Mo's Boy

I made this for my mum to give to my nephew (...sssh!), his birthday's not until next week. The brilliant image from Mo Manning was a dream to colour, and it soooo looks like my nephew.  I used my favourite Promarkers to colour him in and used blue chalk around him.  The background was printed directly onto the A5 card using Greeting Card Factory. I tend to use GCF most of the time as this allows me to print my digital papers and images straight onto the card I'm using, plus I use it for making my insert.  Sometimes I'll use it just for setting out my layout of my card to give me ideas.  I must admit I wouldn't be without it!  Sorry about the quality of the photo.  I'll try and upload another one later.

Promarkers used:  Ivory, Blush, Apricot, Meadow Green, Lime, Forest Green, Pastel Blue, Cornflower, Saffron
Background: GCF
