Squeezable Cheeks

September seems to be filled with birthday boys, for me - 
so I have been scouring the digi stamp stores for some cute fellas.
I came across 'Noah' at Sassy Cheryl's.
Isn't he adorable - look at those squeezable cheeks!

I didn't think my colouring skills were up to the pumpkin, 
so I flood filled it with a digi paper before printing it out. 
(Those eagle eyed amongst you will spot that my printer had a hissy fit mid print, 
and the right side came out a bit faded).
Noah is coloured with Copics and the leaves are scattered with Diamond Dust.

 Mistake no. 2 - after I had stuck down the little sentiment banner, 
I decided to use my orange Copic to draw some vertical lines on the far left. 
Urghhhh.... what a mess I made!  
Luckily, I found a little scrap of orange, stripey paper to cover it all up ;-)

WOW! Caroline this card is adorable! The colours look fab.
Love that image too - very cute.

I'm all for covering up my mistakes as well and it sounds like you are your own self critic- like me.

I am thinking of changing from ProMarkers to Copics and have been asking people their opinions. Have you also tried distress markers?
