Okay peeps, I'm back with a new card for the challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil and a new song to get stuck in your head. hee hee Actually some of you may be a bit too young to remember this one. It was released in the early 70's when I was just a kid, but if you haven't noticed already, I'm a music fanatic. I LOVE the music questions on Jeopardy. ☺
Anyway, back to my card....I've used "Skating" which features Bella and Bronte. I sympathize with Bronte. The few times I've been ice skating I was lovin' me some rail. Bet you didn't know we have a professional hockey team down here in the sun soaked deep south. They're not doing so hot this year and I haven't been to a game in forever, but I have been ice skating when they have the ice open. Those skates kill my ankles and feet!
Sorry for the second detour. Our challenge this week at Mo's is brought to you by the lovely and talented Iulia. She's such an amazing card maker and she has asked for cards that include "something new". For mine I've used two new dies, the border and the snowflake and the image is one I've never used before. I'm sure you got some new Christmas goodies you can use to create a card along with something from Mo's store for this weeks challenge.
I colored my image with Copics and then tried out a technique from my TSG team mate Tobi Crawford that you can find here. She illustrates how to use a black pastel pencil for shading. I tried it out on Bronte and Bella's hat and coat and liked the effects. I still need a little practice so you'll probably see it some more.
Hope you can find time to play along at Mo's this week. That $5.00 gift certificate to Mo's store is up for grabs for one lucky person out of every 25 entries.
