A little Cooper & Sophia

Have I mentioned how much I adore these little kids? They remind me of my own and they are so much fun to color.

First up is Cooper for Paper Pretties weekly challenge PWC49. The challenge was to use something you have been hoarding. I have multiple packs of these glitter dots and they have never made it onto a card. I also used the sketch from PWC48. I really liked the layout, but wasn’t able to play that week. I colored Cooper with Koh-i-Noor and Prisma pencils & OMS. Cooper’s skin & hair are colored with Copics.

I love when I get fun mail that I wasn’t expecting. I received my Hola Chica Sophia yesterday and actually was able to ink her up last night. This will be my submission for the May Cutie Pie contest.

Hola Chica Sophia is so much fun to color — there are so many color combos with her skirt and hat (what do you call a fruit hat/Carmen Miranda thingy?). I have one box of Copics and I used 1/3 of it on this card. You can’t see it, but each layer of her skirt has a bit of Shimmerz on it. All of the dots seemed really fun — between the Tiny Bubbles, Swiss Dots and Swiss Dot satin ribbon – I’m still trying to figure out where my love of dots & circles is coming from. LOL!
