Bye Bye!

Hi again, my friends! I have a Mo's card to show you today! I just love the Bye Bye Boy and Bye Bye Girl images that Mo drew. And Cosmo Cricket paper, of course! If I can manage to part with this I think it will be a RETIREMENT card for our 4th grade teacher, Mark (taking his toys and going home!). Mo has images for so many purposes! I printed the digital image out on my Canon printer onto Neenah classic Solar Crest white. I think the trick to the printer is to have one with a rear tray so the paper doesn't have to bend around as it prints. My card is a standard A2, but the fold is to the left. I love rounding the corners of the opening edge!

He is (of course) colored with my copic markers and I save the colors this time!
E000 and E11 for skin.
E31, 33, 35, 25 and 29 for his hair
BG10, 72 and 18 for his jeans
Y17, YR15, YR16 and YR18 for his back pack
Coo, C1, C3, C5, and C9 for the bike tires and handlebars
R24, R35, R46 and R29 for his jacket and bike.
I also added Glossy Accents to the windshield of his backpack. and Silve Spica pen to the tassles and hub caps and the bumper on the pack so there is some nice sparkle and shine.

Speaking of that, there is a Mo's Blog Hop tomorrow you won't want to miss! Hope you can hop with us!
I've had a question about coloring red and they are tricky! I think red bleeds more than the other colors! I will try to some sort of picture tutorial in the near future (school's almost out-1 week to go!) because of this request by JzScrapRN. For now, I think the main thing is to be sure of your color choices-all reds are not created equal!
Thanks so much for coming by the Cottage today!
Cheryl
