Just like Dad


This is another image from Mo called Boughs for the Wreath. It is really too bad you can't see it in person because the colors look a little faded in the picture and I even tried to fix it but still can't quite capture it. I think I've said it already...I LOVE MO...they are very special for those one of a kind cards because they take me so long to color, there is no way I could mass produce them.

I printed the image on Bella's Bestest Paper and coloured dad and his little son in copic markers, then took a break. I really wanted them to look like they were walking home down a wintery path but was so afraid that the vision in my head wouldn't translate onto paper. So I went shopping!

That little break seemed to work out for me. I got home, put away the copics, pulled out the pencils and VERY slowly went to work. Little by little it was coming together and when it got close enough to my vision I stopped for fear of messing it up!

I'll be keeping this card in the family and sending it to my folks this Christmas...I may even see if I can pry it back after the holidays, but slim chance that will happen!

Got another Mo for ya tomorrow so be sure to come back!

Oh looks like I'm another on Mo's train to Heaven lol. I just love this card and as I said on Mo's blog I don't think an artist could of made this look any better. It is absolutely stunning and actually brought a tear to my eye when I saw it. This is one of my all time favourites from Mo along with 'Jack & Ginger', you have captured something very special here. Thanks for sharing with us.

An amazing card - I love Mo's images.
Your colouring is absolute perfection - if I had created this, I would have to frame it and hang it on my wall - don't think I could bear to part with it, not even to my closest loved ones!

You did an awesome job on this card. I understand why you would want to keep it in the family. It is as good as any art I've seen. People don't think much about what we do when we say we color it. But they have to be thinking of how we used to color when we were young. It is nothing like what you've done. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card with us.
