More Mo!



So Many Images...
So Little Time!

I have a huge collection of Mo's images and have dozens of them all printed up, but there never seem to be enough hours in the day to color and play!
All but a few days since school got out, we've had two of our grandchildren and, some days all three, here swimming, playing, and riding their four- wheelers through the woods while their parents are at work!  I love having them, but it does mean more work cooking for them and cleaning up after them, and that takes away from my play time!

I have managed to grab a few minutes here and there, so I have a few cards to show you.


Cherry, Cherry!


Now this little sweetie can join Mo's other little fruit girls. I posted the Blueberry, Strawberry, and Watermelon  girls previously.

Image: "Cherry" from Mo's Digital Pencil

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencils, White gel pen, Cuttlebug with Nesties and Quickutz Swirl die, Martha Stewart ribbon and lace border punches, Nellie Snellen embossing leaf punch set, Tacky tape

Papers: SU! Real Red, Neenah smooth white, Paper Pizazz red gingham DP

Embellishments: Cherry Charm (Charm Barn), Red satin ribbon, Narrow lace, Flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts)

I've entered this is the Stamp Something Challenge , use a digital image, and the Pink Elephant Challenge,  use red, white, and blue.

Fairies!
 I love this set...five of the cutest little fairies!
My favorite of these two cards is the first one, which is odd, because I'm not fond of lavenders and purples in general. I think it's because I really like the delicate floral paper

























I had a difficult time coloring the hair of this one...just couldn't get the highlights right. I ended up just coloring it all one shade!










Images for both are from Mo's Digital Pencil

Tools: Copics, Spica clear pen, White gel pen, Tacky tape on both, Cuttlebug with Nesties and Parisian Accents die, Martha Stewart border and branch punches, Nellie Snellen embossing leaf punch set on second card

Papers: SU! Mauve Mist and Orchid Opulence,  K & Co. DP (First card), SU! Groovy Guava and Mint Melody, MME Stella DP (Second card), Neenah smooth white on both

Embellishments: Satin Ribbon, Flowers, Lace on both, Flower-headed hat pin with bead and pearls on first, Stickles and Pearl cabochons on second


I have a few more, but will leave those for another time.

Happy Fourth of July!
Elaine
