I love Mo Manning's images... have you guessed that yet?? This monkey is so versatile - I can add a heart, a sentiment, another image of any kind in his hand and it is easy and fun to to color with Copics. I added the faux stitching (for the current challenge) which is a Tim Holtz stamp that might be staples(?) or even looks like Xs as in kisses in this context. Specific sources are listed below.
A little bit of a close-up to show the Copic coloring for the fur, fabric, shading and the heart.
