Jackson the Champion!

His name is Jackson the Champion and isn't he a cutie! I could just eat these little Green Bean Babies up. Speaking of Green Bean Baby, I have another framed piece of paper art in the works!!! SO excited about it. Don't worry....I'll be posting it as soon as I get it done.

As always he was stamped on Bella's Bestest paper and coloured with copic markers. The blue shading was done with B0000 and LOTS of colorless blender to soften off the edge. Then I added in some Cerulean Blue prismacolor pencil close to the image and blended with gamsol. I've been doing that a lot lately...starting the shading with copic, then adding some pencil. I'm not that particular about what color of blue pencil I use, I just pick one, scribble it on a piece of paper and see if it is a color I like. But I do like the Cerulean Blue and use it a lot.

These are the rest of the copics I used:
E50, 51, 53, R20 (face, arms and legs)
E41, 42, 43, 44 (hair)
YR31, 23, Y32
B41, 52, 34, C00, 1

For the layout I fussed around for the longest time then settled on this simple uncluttered look because everything else I tried was too distracting behind my little Jackson. To finish it off I just added a few Bella dots.

How are you all coming along with this week's challenge card...remember it is monochromatic! Mine is done and she's a stunner! Here is a hint...think purples!

Your card is adorable and your coloring skills as usual are AWESOME!! I really like the pattern paper directly behind Jackson. My favorite cards are the kitty in the red chair and the baby polar bear. It is a treat to see what you do with bella's and copics.
