Clam Diggers

     Time for a new challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil and we've got lots of new things going on.  First off the new challenge comes from our darling sistah Amanda who wants to see "Lots of embellies".  For my card I've used Mo's adorable "Clam Diggers" that you can find in Mo's store.  I added a die cut sun with a rhinestone center, lots of pearls and some sweet little punched shells.  There's also some rhinestone trim, twine, and cheese cloth plus a row of vellum waves inked with Glimmer Mist.  Of course there had to be some foliage and a flower too to make sure I had all the embellishment categories covered.  LOL
     Here's a close up of the beach combers.  I used a little bit of black pastel pencil to do some shading on their clothing.

Copics Used:
skin--E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, R30
boy's hair--Y11, Y21, E13, E15
girl's hair--E21, E23, E25, E29

     The new Bronte and Bella's Club House will debut on Facebook on  Saturday, March 15th, at 9 a.m. EST.  Just go to Facebook and look for Bronte and Bella's Clubhouse...then simply click on the "Join Group" button!  We're hoping to make it yet another fun place to make friends and share our love of Mo's images.  We will still have our challenges on the regular DP2 challenge blog, but they will become bi-weekly on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month starting with this challenge.  Another change with the regular challenge is that we will now be choosing our Top 3 faves from the entries.
     Lots of fun in lots of places so you can play whenever you want.  Hope to see you Saturday on the FB page and your entries in the DP2 challenge.
