Time for another Just For Fun challenge with my JiFFy friends! This month Kim sent everyone “Slate” from Crate Paper’s Little Sprout Collection. And Carole (appropriately ) chose Cuddle up Carter by My Favorite Things. Cuddle up Carter was designed as a charity set to benefit kids with Cerebral Palsy (like Carole’s son, Carter) via the non-profit Euro-Peds clinic (www.europeds.org) in Pontiac, Michigan. My Favorite Things is donating $2 from each set sold through September 2009. How awesome is that?
Sweet Little Boy
I broke out the Prismacolor pencils for this one. I wanted a softer look than I get from my Copics. (I’m impatiently awaiting the availability of those lighter colors!) Anyway, I roughened the edges a bit and sponged with some distress ink (mostly to tone down the brightness of the teal paper) and added some stitching.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
