Snowflakes in September!

Aaaaah... 'tis good to be getting back into the swing of things.  It's been a while since my energy and my mojo have worked together and I've been absent through necessity.  But I'm picking up my Copics again and slowly getting back to business, I hope.

And what better way to come back than with a Mo!?  This card is my entry for this week's One Stop Craft Challenge, where the theme this week is (you guessed it!) Snowflakes in September.

Image: Mo's Digital Pencil, 'Dani with Gifts'

Paper: October Afternoon, 'Ducks in a Row' collection

What a super image! This is perfect for any teenage girl or young woman - bright, fresh and happy. 

As soon as I saw Dani, I had this paper in mind.  I wanted to use the pink polkadot in particular - luck would have it that the reverse is this beautiful pink and grey design, which gave me the overall colour scheme for the image.  It was easy, peasy, lemon-squeezy to get this one done! What a welcome relief, after all the mojo-less days I've spent over the last few weeks. 

Pink and grey reminds me very much of the 1980s - even home decor ventured into this particular colour combo - including my bedroom!  So it must be time for a comeback - everything else '80s' is returning, including some of the more, er, questionable fashion statements! I mean, did we ever really look good in harem pants!?

I coloured Dani up with my Copics, of course (and she even has grey eyeshadow on!) and the light blue glow was added with my Prismacolor pencils, as always. I added some sparkle to the snowflakes and (although I don't think the main picture has picked it up very well), some sparkle to the edge of the image and underfoot. 

A bit of colour with her packages just lifts the image, which might otherwise have been a bit too pink and grey, and a nice pink satin bow adds the finishing touch!

So, I'm off to link up before bedtime - early nights these days, dear Bloglanders!

Happy crafting.
