Today I have decided to take the bull by the horns and submit a card for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #12. I've never done this before and I'm not even sure I've done it properly but I've decided that 2010 is all about giving it a go so ..... I gave it a go!
Mo's challenge is 'New Beginnings' and this is my creation. Unfortunately, the photograph is not really very good this time but, hopefully, you will get a feel for the real thing.
What you can't see very well is the grounding and shading, as the flash has bleached the image a little. Also, the reds are actually burnt orange, much more like her coat, but it hasn't picked the colour up very well. I must really work hard on my photography this year, too, don't you think?
The image is Mo's 'Thursday's Child'. I just love the way she strides out, chin up, ready for new adventures (that's my definition of 'New Beginnings', by the way). I put it in a photo-corner-style frame because I wanted to give the feeling that this was the photograph that proud parents had taken of their 'little girl' going off on her own for the first time. She has been coloured, as always, with my Prismacolors.
Papers are Cosmo Cricket (ain't that a surprise!?), as follows:
Top (aeroplanes) - 'Lil' Man' range, 'Mischevious Max'
Bottom - 'Girl Friday' range, 'Sunday'
Middle stripe: reverse of 'Girl Friday' range, 'Tuesday'
Button, thread and pre-cut edging strips, etc., were from my stash.
Hope you like her - wish me luck.
Happy crafting in 2010Px
