Mo's Digital Challenge

I'm not sure I should really be posting this but couldn't resist as swirls and flourishes are the challenge at Mo's Digital Challenge this week.  The problem - it's on it's way to someone for her birthday - I'm sincerely hoping she doesn't visit my blog but I don't think it's likely.  The second problem I can't think of another challenge this wall hanging would fit.

I just fell in love with this image of 'Learning to Read' - Mo has excelled herself with this one - what am I talking about - she excels herself with everyone!!!
I wanted to colour it blue and grey, well I did colour it blue and grey, didn't like it so in the bin it went and I worked with the nearest Copics I could - the BV's (blue violets) and the E43's which are a cool colour and I blended these with W1 - much better!!
I wanted to make a wall hanging rather than a card so I made a purple frame, then a white textured one - it looked a little bare so I decided to add swirls and flourishes in the corner - it's pretty big - the overall size is about 9"x9". These are cut with a Marianne Creatable and a Spellbinders Floral flourishes die.

Excuse the wonky photograph - I don't seem to be able to take straight ones at the moment - me thinks a trip to the optician is in order.

If the friend who this is for visits - all I can say is
Happy Birthday Sweetie, have a fabulous day and love you loads. xx

Well - you excelled yourself with the colouring of this one. The BVs are brilliant with the mauve die cuts - just the right amount of decoration for such a complicated image. You really brought this one to life. Ther ed wine & toadstools are such a good contrast & help make it all glow.
