The image is colored with copics and pencils. The pink background is glossy paper that was colored by inking a craft mat, spraying with water and dragging the glossy through it. Glossy creates wonderful pastels this way. Hand beaded the gown with delica beads using a Pergamano piercing tool. Used the tool to create shoe laces and tie in the boys shoes. Hand stitched panels by piercing using a needlepoint plastic canvas. Strung the silver delicas and added to the bow along with a button. The embossed "Cherish" became smeared all over the top when I dragged my hand through the warm embossing powder so I had to add the label.
A special thanks to Jennifer (mother's daughter) who tipped me off on the Pergamano piercing tool for extra fine piercing. The beads would have not been possible without it.
