Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop!

Hi and welcome to Mo's Digital Pencil Monthly Blog Hop! If you came from Heidy's Blog, you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from blog. We have a really fun theme this month and you wouldn't want to miss any of the stops! Here is my card for the hop.


This month's hostess is Debbie and she challenged us to make a card with Ethnic/Darker Skin Tones. I rarely color my characters with darker skin, so it was really fun to challenge myself.


I used the darling Jaqui Painting for my card. She is printed on Papertrey Ink's Stamper's Select White cardstock, cut and embossed using a Labels Two die then colored with Copic markers.


The patterned paper is from Hello Summer 6x6 Paper Pad by Echo Park and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

That's all I have, it's time to send you to Debbie's Blog. Don't forget to leave comments along the way, TWO lucky commenters will each receive a $5 Gift Certificate to use at Mo's Digital Pencil! Have fun hopping and good luck! =)

OK, so I seem to have stumbled upon a blog hop -- or your subscribers are much better subscriber than I am! Although I've just become a subscriber, so maybe they'll make me a better subscriber! ANYWAY, I came from Vanessa's Wings of a Butterfly! I scrolled aimlessly and found this Mo digi and I wanted to say I love the coloring, I love the image, and i'm so happy Vanessa sent me here!

yyam said...

Wow! Brilliant colouring. Love your choice of patterned papers too! :)
