Karleigh Sue Inspiration - Boys Christening

I was on a role with my colouring - hence the 3rd blog this week already!!
I wanted something different to colour so went with Karleigh Sue Baby Boys Christening

I was originally going to do him on parchment with some lace work.. 
but after printing him off on cardstock in error I went with it ;-)
Someone (she knows who she is) suggested mounting him on an easel card - something I hadnt made in absolute ages, so she talked me thru it (in fact shared one her excellent photo dems ;-)

I used Pro Markers as follows

Skin - Apricot, Oatmeal, Blush
Top/trousers - Blue Pearl, Pastel blue, powder blue

Pillow - Ivory, blender

I used white pearlesent cardstock.

2 small round white doillies from  my stash
blue button and rubbon to make a bow
You cant see it very well in the photo but ther eis a circle of glitter butterfly vellum under the button/bow

Kinds regards
