Yes, I know this little image's name is Tommy: Apples for Mommy, but my little Tommy has peaches. What?! Well, apples and peaches are shaped so close and everyone gives this little image red apples...and I just wanted to be different.
I received this adorable little image for Christmas from a special friend and I love him. I saw him Christmas morning and knew he was going to be so much fun to color, and he definitely was! So many choices for his plaid shirt!
This card has no designer paper. I made my background paper by taking shiny white paper, wetting a cotton ball with Studio Dye Blender and then adding Adirondack Aqua ink on the cotton ball and dabbing it all over the paper. This is called the Polished Stone technique. After I did that, I took a silver leafing pen and dabbed it over the aqua. Not too much, but enough for some contrast. I used a Spellbinders die around the image in silver paper and then painted it with black Rub 'n Buff. The blue dots in the corners are actually buttons with their backs cut off and glued to the Spellbinders frame. I used a La-La-Land corner die and cut that out of silver paper and applied black Rub 'n Buff to it, too. The sentiment is by Whimsy and I added Glossy Accents to the hearts. I used blue silk ribbon and have a button threaded with baker's twine in the center and I attached my metal gardening tool charms to the baker's twine with a silver ring. Here's a close up of Tommy with his peaches.
Tommy is colored with Copics and I added some smudges to his jeans since there are no little boys wearing perfectly clean jeans where I come from.
