Karl finally made his way to his new home

The colors managed to get a little washed out in these shots but he's a mix of that acid green I seem to be so fond of and it graduates down to a dusky purple shade.

I am most fond of his crown


He traveled all the way to Spain and I admit to becoming rather anxious that he would never arrive and become lost, much like the previous tag and inchies I sent that way.




I made another set of those and had Karl keep a close eye on them on the trip over.
I really like using old yellowed pages as a background for these and I love the way the text comes through when you use colored pencil over them.

Karl is quite fabulous!! I adore that green color too. The base is super cool! I hope his travels are smooth and safe. I know how worrisome that can be.
Love the technique on the tags!
Have a lovely day,
Carrie
