Mo's DP2 challenge - TUESDAY, 11 JANUARY 2011

TUESDAY, 11 JANUARY 2011


Just a card without a challenge

I've been have a big sort-out today, in my computer, in my stash - well just about everywhere and I found a card that I never got round to posting.
I did a wall hanging for a friend using this image and immediately wanted to do it again in different colours, so I thought I'd show it you.




It is of course one of Mo's and I think it is my overall favourite at the moment and it's called 'Learning to Read'.

I coloured it this time in Copics using mainly R20's and C's.

The top left hand corner looked bare but it really didn't lend itself to embellishments so I simply added a computer generated sentiment and then matted and layered it onto red cardstock.

I would like to frame it but doubt whether I would find a frame the correct size and so would probably have to make one.
Right hopefully I will finish sorting out my jumbled up downloaded papers this evening - wish me luck!!

EDITED

This has been entered to DP2 Favourite 2011 - one is 'All time favourite' which was never made for any challenge - just for fun - so it is gratified it that is part of a entered


Having had no computer since I arrived to England I really want wish you'd all had a fabulous Christmas a love to you all for the happiness with New Year.
