Mo's Digital Pencil Guest Designer Entry

I thought I would be daring and enter this little cutie into Mo Manning's Guest Designer call out. I entered it in the 'Good-bye Summer' challenge. It's for a 3 month term. I know I don't stand a cat in hell's chance as the standard of Mo's DT is out of this world, but I thought what the hell what have I got to lose!  Mo is one of my most fav illustrators, her drawings are down right gorgeous.  I've been using Mo's digital images for years, long before digital stamps became fashionable and long before they were turned into rubber stamps. Honestly, I'm not sucking up lol!  I just love, love her images - she has such a fantastic eye; and although I love all her stamps I think the way she captures little ones is so exact that they're just magical, and don't fail to make you giggle.

So here's my offering, I hope you like it. I've had this little 'Summer Baby' stamp for years, I got it when Mo did it as a freebie (I know I keep saying 'it', that's because it can be either a girl or a boy). I loved it but never had a reason to use it....till now. I used this little chap because my thought was that he's grabbing the last of the summer sun before autumn kicks, and having a little paddle. Well that's my way of thinking anyway. :)

He's been printed 3 times, different areas were coloured in, then cut out and layered up.  Note: You can still buy him from Mo's store here.

Here's what I used -
Paper: Papermania 'Blue' A5 Pad
Die: Memory Box 'Big Splash Border'
Copics: Skin - E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20 / Inflatable Ring - B0000, B000, B00, B02, B05 / Pool - BG10, BG13, YG11, YG17, YG23, YG41 / Fish & Ball - Y06, Y17, BG10, BG13 / Hair - YR0000, YR000, E13, E15 / Water - B0000, B000, B02, B05 / Shorts - YG23, Y06
Pan Pastels: Phathol Green, Turqiouse
Other: Button, Bakers Twine, Hole Punch, Serif's CraftArtist 2 (used for the background and text)

Hope you like it - and wish me luck.
