Little Ragamuffin

I finally colored up this adorable little ragamuffin from Mo's Digital Pencil. It sat for the longest time on my desk, and I just kept passing it over for something else, and now I can't understand why! Gosh she's adorable!

I used very earthy, grayed colors she is after all, a raggedy angel. She's a poor little soul, not a dime to her name, but a heart as good as gold. I always tell myself these little stories when I color, I'm telling you, stamping and coloring is wonderful therapy. 

If you look closely, and click on the picture to enlarge it you might be able to see that I've finally managed to emboss a digital image out of the printer! It was such a frustrating thing for me, most times I was wasting paper. THIS time, I used some bleedproof paper and it worked beautifully! I love the way it looks. Copics color a bit differently on this paper, but nothing I can't work with. 
Again, I did some hand stitching around the label die cuts, to tie in with the raggedy angel look. And of course, some very vintage looking papers from Kaisercraft. The newsprint paper on the bottom layer is perfect, because I imagine this little ragamuffin might sell newspapers on a street corner to help buy all her family little gifts for Christmas! 

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!
