So Grateful Socks

Have you seen The Cat's Pajamas latest release?  EEE so full of fun!  A sweet little package arrived for me with my order while we were gone...I was delighted to be able to ink a little up this weekend.

This month's TCP Challenge is Flowers as the Focus.  Now one of my favourite stamps from the new release is this awesome Sock Monkey - but he has no flowers.  So I had to get a little more creative.  I stamped Socks and coloured him up, then stamped the bouquet from another TCP set - Bloom, coloured it up and cut it out leaving Bun Bun out and adding the bouquet to Socks.  It turned out pretty cute :)

Now because I was cutting the bouquet out around Bun Bun the Bunny that is in the Bloom set - there was a bit of a spot in the top center of the bouquet that looked very empty; so where I knew I wanted to place the popped up the bouquet, I drew in some little flowers on the main image with my Copic Multiliner and it makes a multi-dimensional bouquet.  

I tried to colour up Sock to really have the feeling of heathering that my son's sock monkey has.  Just little flick strokes with my W1 - 7 markers.  

I think you might be able to see a bit more of the dimension on the bouquet in this shot.  

So cute he just makes me smile!
