Birthday wishes

So, I don't usually do many male cards and not from a little boy to his father, or for a father with a little boy but this image is perfect for an occasion like that and I just couldn't resist using this darling image! I totally LOVE his plaid pants!!   This image is from LMMS and is called Spencer and Oscar you can find it HERE.

The ONE FOR THE BOYS challenge is still going on over at LITTLE MISS MUFFET STAMPS, so come over and join us!!

I colored the image with copics, first I did all the fur and then used the colorless copic blender on part of a fuzzy sock to dab on for texture on the fur.  I either didn't do it right or should have masked the image with miskit, cuz the brown colors bled into the actual image and I had to go to work with the colorless blender marker over and over and over to save the image.  I've seen the technique done before but probably should have brushed up before, oh and learn!

The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp called Whatnot Sentiments Four

Here are the colors I used
E49 47 44 43
E37 35 33 31
B99 97 95 93
YG67 63 61 03
YR68 17 15 02

I also used some pattern paper from my stash, I've had it for so long that I don't know the manufacturer, but thought it was perfect for a manly card and added staples as well.

I hope you like it and will come join us at Little Miss Muffet Stamps!
