Mr.Greengene's Mango Boy

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Faux What? where we were to NOT use our fabulous Nesties (insert pout here) LOL but create our very own illussion instead by using other ways. Well I used my SU ticket corner punch and score pal to simulate the Nesties Labels 5 and used as my focal panel with this darling little boy image from Sugar Nellie called Mango Boy. Remember Mr. Greengenes from Capt Kangaroo show with his overalls. This is his grandson. LOL. The focal panel is up on dimensionals. I colored with copics E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, G20, G21, G21, G24, G85, G94, G99, Y21, Y23, Y26 & shaded with N1. All of the green is for this month's COPIC CREATIONS CHALLENGE # 23 - A Whee Bit of Green. My layout is from Saturday's OUR CREATIVE CORNER CHALLENGE - Sketch Challenge. I used some My Minds Eye dp I just got Saturday and am so loving this pack I may have to go get another stack of it. My faux brads in the corners were made with the crop-a-dile largest hole punch and the yellow dp with round pop dots under them. My ribbon is green felt. Hope you like it.
