Ten-hut!


     This is a red, white, and blue kind of week at Mo's Digital Pencil.  Our wonderful DT sistah Tine hails from Norway and that country will be celebrating it's national day on the 17th.  As our hostess for this weeks challenge, Tine wants to see projects in Norwegian flag colors.
     I've used one of the sailor boys from the Sailor Boy set in Mo's store and I added the soldiers from the set too.  Lots of red, white, and blue as you can see.  We're also having a "Use fabric" theme over at the Catered Crop so I pulled out some cheesecloth and cut my banner pieces from sticky backed canvas.  The flags are adhered to chipboard for stability.  I also added some chipboard stars covered with crackle paint.
     Two fun challenges for you to join in this week.  We also have something fun coming up at Mo's.
"A challenge for "children" of all ages!! Please watch Mo's Challenge Blog for more details!"

I love how he is looking down at the soldiers and smiling. Such a sweet composition. This card is delightful. The layering is fabulous. Those little red squares are such an inspired detail. They add so much more than a rectangle of red would. I love the energy and playfulness of this card. It suits this little sweetie so well. Awesome!

Hi my sweet friend,
I always love your boys cards, because I think they are more difficult to create but you really have a talent for it. This little sailor boy is beautifully colored and those soldiers are perfectly matching.
