Mother to be 2

With this wonderful Mother to Be 2 image by Mo Manning I tried to be a little more daring and coloured the image with black skin tones with the Promarkers, this was a first for me and i have to say that I am quite pleased with the results, the pretty papers were in a set I bought from QVC , buttons bows and blossom and a oval pin to make the card and a bit of love to put it together.

Attention to detail...

the ribbon is tied into a pretty bow then the blossom stem was wrapped around the centre of the bow to keep it in place, finally the oval pearl pin secures the bow to the card by pinning it through the ribbon and down the back of the background paper.

Wow, you certainly accomplished your goal with the skin tones, Jak! I'm still struggling so much with skin tones and hair. I'll never be great, but fun to learn! Sweet image and fun card!!!

great card Jak, the colours are so rich & vibrant, and the image is just so sweet. My Daughter-in-law looked like that just a month ago until she gave birth to our dear little grand son.

Brilliant card for a mum to be... your colouring turned out great.

What do you do with the sharp bit on the end of the pin? do you always tuck it into the backing paper?
