Mo's Challenge #143

You Should be Dancing!

Mo's Challenge this week is "Singing and Dancing", and Mo has so many images that could be used!

I've used "Mary Tapping" on my card. I just love her exuberance! There is a newer version of her in Mo's shop.


I did something a little different with the image this time. It's a twist on the 'Out-of-the Box' technique. After printing and coloring the image, I cut her arms, legs, and skirt partially away from the panel. Then I used Nestibilities dies to cut an oval in the DP and to make a frame out of red CS. I placed the image panel behind the frame and brought the cut away parts through the opening so that she looks as though she's jumping out of the frame. I like the effect!

Images: "Mary Tapping" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Sentiment from SU!s Warm Words stamp

Tools: Copics, Fine black marker, Cuttlebug with Nestibilities ovals, Nellie Snellen embossing leaf punch set

Papers: SU! Daffodil, Real Red, Garden Green, Neenah smooth white, Bearly Mine Designs DP

Embellishments: Satin ribbon, Lace, Flowers (WOC)

So get on your dancing shoes, use your best singing voice, and make a card or project using one of Mo's great images for a chance to win a gift certificate to Mo's store!

Start the music!

Hi Elaine! Such a cute card! You know I have no memory of this digi at all! How can that be? Looks like I need to go poking in MO's archives a little further back, huh?
