Designing with Vintage Digital Images / Stamps

I am so excited to be a Guest designer for Digital Two For Tuesday today.
As I have mentioned before I LOVE Cora's vintage images and today's post is no exception.
I haven't spent alot of time designing with images of children, so it was fun to do something diffenrent.  I would love to have you join me for this challenge.  To play along, hop over to Digital Two For Tuesday, download these  images and join me this week.  The images are free.  After you have created your project, post a link in the comments section, and I will check them out.  I can't wait to see what others come up with!   Cora just ask that you not post the actual images anywhere else and that you give her credit when you post you project.  She spends alot of time shopping for and repairing these images for us to use. 

You can find these images to copy and print HERE.

Thanks for looking!


Project Details

Card #1

She has some really cool products that I REALLY need to add to my stash!
Colorization : Copics
Ribbon : Antique shop
Charm : local Stamp Store - A Small Cleverness

Card #2
Patterned Paper : old My Minds Eye from 2008
(Yep, I'm using up my stash and lovin' it!!)
Border Punch : EK Success
Colorization : Copics
Shirt and socks, blocks : light red : R32 and then combine with R27 for shading (use R32 to pick up a little R27 from a plastic surface, or try tip to tip)
Collar, sleeves, shorts red : R27
blue shirt and blocks: BG0000, then combine with BG72 for shading  (use BG000 to pick up a little of BG72 from a plastic surface) 
yellow collar, shorts, blocks :  YR31 and then combine with Y26 as described above for shading
green blocks, bunny jacket : YR31 and then YG91.  The color in the paper was a weird greenish yellow that I just had to play with to get a shade that matched.  I added a little brown on the jacket when I was distressing the project using my eye shadow applicator and my palette burnt umber
skin : E50, E000, R00
brown hair : E35, E37, E29
blond hair :  I can't remember, sorry.
