"Scribbles" for Mo's Challenge Blog

Today I finally get to showcase my first ever Mo Manning creation, her work is amazing & I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of colouring it..........................

Card - "Scribbles" for Mo's Challenge Blog

The theme for this weeks challenge is "It's Playtime", for me as a child that meant anything involving art - so crayons, pencils, pens and paper were order of the day - I guess that's why this particular image appealed to me so much.

Image: Mo Manning "makin cards"
Paper: V & A Hanovarian by Do Crafts, Core'dinations - various
Colouring: Copics, Chalk Ink, Distress Inks
Additional: Martha Stewart punch, Quickutz crayon & corner dies, Nestabilities, sewing machine, PC created greeting.

Copic Colours used

Good luck to everyone that's entered the competition.

OMG you're a champ. Said it before and will repeat it as often as possible. No wonder you use so many different shades - I don't even have that many - and sadly here in Denmark many colors never reach the stores. BUMMER. But even with any shade available I could never - make that NEVER - get a result like yours. Look at the curly hair, the cheekbones - her eyelids and the boots. WAUW.. thanks for sharing - eventhough it makes me feel like a total beginner. =0) And yes the Mo M. images are wonderful!!

Thanks ladies, and Pat I made the sentiment myself via Photoshop Elements with a really sweet font that's meant to look like pastels/crayons colour matching it to rest of the card! And I will be up for another challenge - I think I'm hooked on Mo's designs!!!
