Without Words - spots and/ or stripes

Morning everyone :o)

Our challenge for this month at Without Words is 'spots and/ or stripes', and we're sponsored by Crafter's Companion with a £10 voucher for our lucky winner.

I've made a card for Dex as it's his birthday on Wednesday... He saw this image when I printed it (a couple of months ago!) and asked if it was for his card, so I thought I'd use it seen as he seemed to like it.




It's not completely finished - I decided after I took the photos that it needs a couple of little sentiment tags tying onto the thread... will do that later!

Items Used
Digi stamp - My Batty Hero - Tiddly Inks
Colouring - copics
Papers - MME (old ones, not sure what they're called)
Number 6 - cut on the Cameo
Black thread from my stash

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Charisma Cardz - birthdays
Sketch Saturday - sketch (adapted a bit, hope it's ok!)
Papertake Weekly - pick of the year (10th Sept, child's play challenge)

The boys have gone back to school today and I'm really missing them... could have done with at least another week's holiday.  I suppose I'll get a bit more done though, and I really must get back into the gym routine now!

Hope you all have a lovely day :o)

Great colours Lisa, and I love the Tiddly Inks image, although not seen this one before. You have coloured him perfectly and I'm sure Dex will think it's great. Hope he enjoys his day. I see that you are getting some more use out of your Cameo, good on 'ya.

I bet Dex will love this - it's super awesome! I think adding some sentiment tags will be a great touch although it's fine as it is.
Wonderful colouring especially those cape pleats :-)
