I have so many of Mo's images sat in my file I haven't had time to use lately.
The theme at Mo's Digital Challenge this week is "What's love got to do with it?" What has love got to do with it you might ask when you see
the image I've used. When I was a child I had my hair in two little pigtails
- I also had a little trike - it was Maroon, and at about three years old that trike was the love of my life. This image reminds me so much of peddling my way happily through life, until sadly I grew and my trike didn't and I had to
say goodbye to it..
I coloured this image before I chose papers - WRONG!! I normally choose the image, then the papers and colour accordingly. I could not find papers to match the image but eventually dug out these Basic Grey Christmas papers (trashing my room in the process) - they are a mixture of Dasher and Fruit cake. I followed the sketch at Friday Sketchers, the border is cut with an EKSuccess punch and the flowers with a Nellie Snellon punch and emboss punch, everything else is from my stash.
Jeans - B0000, B00, B93, 95 & 97
Jacket - G0000, G20 & G28
Trike and ladybird bag - R00, R20, 27 & 29
Hair - Y0000, E31, E70, 71 & 77
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this image when I bought it. I wanted to leave it basically uncoloured and let it 'speak' for itself. I just love the joy on the faces of these nuns.I suppose this could fall into the category of LOVE - they certainly seem to be loving life. I printed them onto a cream cardstock, coloured again with Copics, cut them out with a MS punch, simply added corners cut with an EK Success punch and a little black bling.
I think this stunning Graphic 45 paper is just perfect as a background for them.The ribbon is a sort of cotton twill I cut of something ages ago, I tied a knot, frayed the ends and added a small cross charm.
Had a little 'oops' with this one when the cat jumped on my knee, dug his claws in and my pen slid off the image - top left hand nun's head. I managed to remove most of the mark but not quite all - had I used Copic paper probably would have been able to lift it altogether.
Well I was a good girl yesterday, cleaned my house from top to bottom, did my shopping - we have yet another holiday here on Monday, finished off all my paperwork (bar a couple of things in German I need to translate) so this weekend is going to be 'playtime'. Hope you all have a great weekend.
