Mimo with Roses

I always struggle with boy type cards..I'm sure others do too..or at least I hope I'm not the only one. When I say this stamp I had an idea pop into my head right away...and this card was the result.

I went way out of the box with the patterned paper, I used Kaiser Kraft "Ebony & Ivory" (P176 Penelope & P178 Isabel). I was aiming for something masculine but yet not too girly either. I added some Kaiser Craft Midnight Pears, Midnight & Gray Flowers as well. I used Spellbinders dies to cut out the mats & I coloured Mimo with Copics:

Hat & Pants: B91, B93, B97
Shirt & Shoes: C1, C3, C5
Skin: E000, E01, E00 & R20 for the cheeks
Roses: BV11, Bv13, BV17
Leaves & Stems: G20, G21, G24
Hair: E31, E33, E35, E37

Mimo is stamped with Tsukineko Momento Tuxedo Black on Prism Simply Smooth Ivory cardstock.

Here is a close up of Mimo:
