A Little Bit Of Him And A Little Bit Of Her

Hello.  Welcome.  It's been a busy day and there was an invitation to go eat cake so, of course, I did LOL.  It was very nice cake.  Then I decided I needed to do a bit of colouring for the 30 day colouring challenge.  But I found this guy, 

and this happened

The boy is a Panduro stamp, stamped on some Basic Grey paper which fitted the Waffle Flower challenge colours.   I've used the MFP sketch.  Looking at the Waffle Flower inspirational photo the chest of drawers with the knobs reminded me of dots, so I dug through my embossing folders.  No dots, but did find Sizzix retro circles.  I embossed the two panels, white on white, and added my little footballer.  The sentiment is from Marks Finest Papers Paper Doll Francis set.  I stamped it with Old Paper distress and then black archival.

But I did find 5 minutes to colour.  I stamped Unity Harmony Girl twice, fussy cut and got busy with the watercolour pencils and waterbrush

Obviously feeling less bright today.  The one on the right is just many shades of grey.   Interesting...

Linking up to The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge - Day 3

Thanks for dropping by.  Hope you found some time to craft today.  Hugz
