Which brings me to my card for today. This one is for the DP2 challenge and is also my Mo's Dream Team card for this week. I feel I have neglected my darling Mo the last few days so apologies all my Mo fans - this one is for you. (Don't forget the Dream Team blog hop on Thursday though!)
This week's DP2 Challenge was an inspiration photograph - check out these colours!
So here's my card:
Image: Mo's Digital Pencil, 'Georgie's Cartwheel'
Papers: Scenic Route
Tutorial: Splitcoaststampers, which you can find here.
I simply had to make a spinner card with this little guy, as soon as I read Mo's comment 'Turn him on his head and he's jumping for joy'. I adapted the tutorial a little to fit my needs, as I wanted just a strip for the spinner itself - but it was easy to do once I'd got the idea of the spinner working properly. I'd hope to do an 'action shot' but I'm hopeless with the video!
This beautiful striped paper is perfect for the colour challenge, don't you think, and these beautiful bright buttons were just waiting for this challenge to come along!
So, rather than the action shot, here are the stills:
Off he goes ......
.... jumping for joy .....
How cute is he!? I'm delighted with this one -he's so jolly! I coloured him with Copics, as usual - although colouring someone upside down and the right way up is quite difficult! The shadows would fall in slightly different places depending on which way up he is. Still, as my shadowing is never particularly accurate, I reckon I've got away with it!
Sorry about the ridiculous layout on this post - I'm having real trouble with Mr Blogger at the moment - he simply won't put things where I want them and I don't know what's changed to make him act like this! I'll have to investigate!
So, off to link up and then it must be time for lunch - I need a big salad to counteract all those yummy calories from Sunday's cakes!
