Hi there! I was SO thrilled and honored to be picked as a Top 3 in Mo’s Digital Pencil challenge, as part of the distinction was to be asked to be a Guest Designer for an upcoming challenge. 🙂 Mo’s images were among the first digital stamps that I fell in love with, and some of the only ones that I use over and over and over again, so I was super excited!!! The challenge theme is ATG with an option of “For the Guys”- with a Mo image. I know that many find masculine cards difficult, but there are so many Mo images that are PERFECT for guys of any age….check them out!!! 🙂 I used this endearing Dwarf…(Dwarf 7, to be precise….he’s got a few cute friends 😉 lol). I colored him with my Copics and trimmed the opposite corners of the image so they were rounded.
I forgot to pick out paper before coloring him (a new habit that I’ve been trying to establish….but not quite a habit yet!), so had to rummage around my papers….good thing I have enough to last for about 52 lifetimes, I can find prints that I like….barely….hehehe. I cut pieces and mats for said pieces and arranged and rearranged them until I was happy with the layout. I really don’t like to used a ton of embellishments on a card with an amazing image, so I kept things rather simple. I cut the buntings with Little B dies, and the simple sentiment was punched….yes, I still have ALL my punches!!! The card needed a little something else, so I grabbed some baubles and tinted them a coordinating color with my Copics. Then, cuz I can’t leave well enough alone, I doodled around some of the edges 🙂 I hope you can check out the challenge, and share some Mo works with us…..warning, once you start with these images, it’s hard to quit!!!
I’d like to enter the following challenges with this card:
Cute Card Thursday – #584 Masculine
As You Like It Challenge – His or Hers……I love making both, and seem to make more “her” cards, but I love love the challenge of making a masculine card!!! I find I have to be more inventive with embellishments and style, and I love a good challenge 🙂
