One, Two, Three, Four, Kai

Aaaaah! Friday! I'm so glad it's the weekend - I'm pooped! But that's okay - it pays for my stash (among the bills, of course!).  And I've got new stash this week - including some lovely new papers to give my mojo a boost.  There's nothing quite like a bit of new stash to get the creative juices flowing again, and I must say that I've really needed that this past few weeks.  Hopefully, you'll agree that it's done the trick!

So, meet Kai:

Image: Mo's Digital Pencil, 'Kai in a Tub'

Papers: October Afternoon, 'Seaside' (what a gorgeous new collection)

Tickets: Made by me!

Isn't he (or she, you choose) just an absolute darling?  This is one of Mo's new images and I adore it - such absolute fun.  Reminds me of Daughter when she was small - she just loved to play in the bath, splishing and splashing. 

I coloured Kai with my Copics, adding extra shading and 'glow' with my Prismas, as always.  And then a bit of glaze over the water, of course - although you can't see it very well in this picture. 

The little tickets are the ones I made in MS Publisher.  They're so easy but so effective (I think) and tons cheaper than buying them, particularly when you need something specific and perhaps not so vintage.

I have to say that I'm pretty pleased with the way this image turned out.  My colouring has been very lack-lustre lately, and I'm sorry that I haven't been showing my best work of late.  But with Kai, I think I'm on my way back and I'm really happy. 

This card will be my entry for the following challenges:

Stamptacular Challenge - At least 5 layers

The Pink Elephant - Childhood

Mo's Digital Pencil - Colours of the rainbow (blue). Congratulations on your first anniversary, girls!

Cute Card Thursday - Make your own embellishments (tickets)

So, it's after midnight and I can feel myself turning into a pumpkin so I'm off to link up and then zzzzzzzzzz.  Easy day tomorrow, thankfully.

Happy crafting.
