Super Mom to the rescue!

Whereas I am not a super mom, nor do I play one on tv, I do have a super mom of my own, so when I saw this Super Mom image from Kenny K Downloads, I had to have it!

Here's my first card using the digital image. I also used sketch #27 from Retro Sketches Challenge Blog.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my take on the sketch:

I recently got my hair cut and colored, so I tried to match my new color on Super Mom's Hair. I think my hair is still a bit redder, though it's about that length, but not as stylish.

I colored Super Mom with Copic markers, which I know is a big shockeroo to you all.

Here are the markers I used for the:
Face: E000, E01, E11, R20
Lips: R20, R22, R24
Hair YR30, E51, E53, E55, E57*
Blouse: BG11, BG23, BG32, BG34, BG93
Skirt: E74, E77, E79
Apron: W1, W3, RY20, YR21, YR24, YR27

*My E11 & E55 have gotten goopy, so there are some shiny spots in the hair, which is ever-so-irritating. *sigh*

The patterned papers are from the Mabel 6x6 pad from the Stella & Rose collection by MME.

The ribbon is from my stash. I changed the light blue to match using BG23. I added a pearl earring to finish off the card.

I will use this card for my Mom at some point. I'm safe because she doesn't read my blog.

Thanks for visiting today and happy September!

I shall enter this card in the following challenges:
