Little Momma

I am so in love with this precious image by Mo Manning. Kady can be found at Mo's Digital Pencil. She is a new stamp and you must get her. Kady is so fun to color and look how sweet she is. I am sure we all know a little girl who is the best little mommy to her dolls. Sometimes I wish I would have another baby just because I know what a sweet little helper my daughter would be, but I let my common sense prevail, haha!

I uses MME's Love Me 6x6 paper pad and some Recollections corrugated cardstock for my layers. I gessoed and used Shabby Pink Frantage on the corrugated cardstock and a bit of gesso around the card. Wild Orchid craft flowers and Decorative Pins were my embellishments. I used Spun Sugar DI to pinkify the Carnations and I cut out a butterfly from some Maja paper, also. The wonderful sketch I used was from The Sketchy Challenges.

I hadn't colored with Distress Inks in a while because I didn't like the yellow, rough paper I had purchased on sale that I was using previously. So, I splurged (with a coupon, lol) on Canson paper. I've never heard of it before but it was the best in Michael's that was still a decent price. It's whiter and much smoother than the Strathmore.

For sweet Kady, I used the following Distress Ink Pads:

Skirt- Victorian Velvet
Sweater and Leggings- Black Soot
Hair-Antique Linen and Walnut Stain
Skin-Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo and Worn Lipstick 
Ground- Frayed Burlap
Background- Weathered Wood and Black Soot

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!
