Onesies for the Grandbaby

I have watched a lot of tutorials on how to color on fabric.  I'm not very happy with the way his face turned out.  I will probably redo it later on another onesie later.
I liked this one better.  The coloring on the face turned out much better.

This one came out pretty good too.  I am pleased with my first attempts.

I tried something new!

This adorable guy is from The Greeting Farm.  The sentiment is also a part of the set I just purchased.  I have seen a few tutorials on how to do background coloring.  Since I really don't like the white backgrounds I usually have and it is so time consuming for me to use my copics to color the background (I hate the streaking so I end up going over it a lot) and I use a lot of ink with my copics, I tried one of the techniques I have seen.  I used a stippling brush and 2 of my numerous ink pads (I have so many).  I went around the image with a sky blue and then went over it again with sunshine yellow.  I love the way the colors combined to look like I had also used green.  They blended well and I am really pleased with the result.

Copic Crafter OAMR

These cards are for our OAMR (once a month rak) group.

Both images are digital images from Sugar Nellie.
Ribbon, papers and other embellishments are from my huge stash of things I need to use.
I used my copics to color the images and then I used some gel pens I picked up at Big Lots to add
some sparkle.
