Blowin' in the ....snow?


     Happy Thursday all!  It's time for a new challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil.  Our super sweet Kim has chosen a them of "Kraft paper".
     I love the look of pencils on kraft, but I'm not very good at it.  I have enough trouble trying to work out shading with Copics and I just haven't got it down yet with the pencils.
     I went REALLY CAS with this card.  It's only ONE layer!  SHOCKER!!!  LOL  I printed out the digi right to the card base.  Since I used pencils I didn't have to worry about any bleeding.  After coloring I used a Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil to add some embossing paste for the show fall.  It was sprinkled with some glitter too before drying.
     Nothing fancy in the coloring department.  You'll have to check out my team mate Anja for that.  She's awesome!


     You can find this recently released image, called Seasons Greetings, as well as several other new Christmas images in Mo's store.
     This weeks prize is a little different.  We are offering some Mo rubbah in the form of this cool Penny Black cling stamp.


     Pull out that kraft paper and come play along!
     Be blessed!

Supplies:
Paper--Recollections
Stamps--Mo's Digital Pencil "Seasons Greetings
Ink--Prismacolor pencils, OMS, Sakura white and gold gel pens
Tools--Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil
Miscellaneous--Wendy Vecchi embossing paste, Recollections extra fine glitter, Star Dust Stickles

  7. Wow, Tracy, I just had to stop by to say how much I love this fabulous card. Have had Blogger issues in that I haven't been able to see pictures on blogs for a couple of days, so what a joy it was to find that not only were the pictures back, but that this little beauty was waving at me in my reading list! Your colouring with pencils is just gorgeous. Did I tell you already how much I love this card? xx

  13. There isn't anything you can't color, be it Copics or colored pencils. Your coloring is always the best. Do you teach classes around you area? If you don't, you should! I'm sure classes would overfill. :o) Thanks for sharing another wonderful card. Hugs, Geri N
