Edwin with Stolen Heart

Is anyone a Backyardigans fan? Well, I've been having fun with some Magnolia stamps and colored a few of them to resemble the Backyardigans characters! LOL So this first one is Tyrone the moose and I used Edwin with Stolen Heart which was perfect!

All I had to do was add some antlers and ears then color in the face to look like Tyrone and the rest was easy... Edwin had the perfect shirt on and the face came naturally. :D To do this, I first drew in the the extras with a light pencil and just before coloring it, I erased the pencil marks as much as possible.

Check out that cute face... isn't he adorable?! Tomorrow I'll have a short tutorial on how I colored Uniqua so you can see how easy it was. I ended up coloring all five characters and made a gift set out of them for an elementary school teacher. So what do you think? An acceptable conversion?

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Pattie's Creations Challenge #40 - Anything goes
Phindy's Place Challenge #98 - Animal planet
Simply Magnolia Challenge - Anything goes
