I wanted to get a card in for Mo's current challenge and how funny that the theme is new beginnings as well! I found Maurie Manning's images a long time ago and Sumpin's Wrong was one of the first ones I bought. I finally feel like I can do it justice. =)
I have had this card idea rolling around for a while, but it still took me forever to put it all together! The little bits always seem to trip me up. The stamp is colored with Copic's and I paper pieced the shirt. I had this idea in my head that I wanted his shirt to be tan plaid. Couldn't exactly tell you why though. With all of the paper I own, can you believe I did not have the right color?! I went in search online and found this gorgeous tan plaid digital paper on Granny Enchanted. There are a lot of wonderful kits and freebies! If you love paper, this is definitely the place for you! The great thing about the digital paper is I could reduce the size of the plaid to fit the scale of the shirt and then use a larger version for the background paper!
Now I just have to wait for someone to have a little boy so I can give them this card. =)
