Bath Time for Hippo in "felt" and "paper"

Happy week to you all. I have been having fun experimenting with a new style lately to possibly add to my portfolio. I had this sketch on my drawing board and was going to finish it in the experimental style but it kept telling me that it wanted to be finished in "digital felt". So I listened....

I thought I was done, but then I started wondering how it would look if instead it was done in a cut paper look. Because I work in a lot of layers, it was fairly easy to remove some here and there and revamp others. This is what I came up with.  A lot like the felt 
version with mainly the stitching and felt texture removed.

Hmm...I wonder how it would look in a cross stitch style...only kidding ;)

Charming- I like both the paper and the felt look. I just discovered this blog and find it a treasure trove of art and Kids lit. I'm and author/ illustrator myself and will be sure to visit this site in the future.
