Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog #1: Perple

My latest purchase from Mo's Digital Pencil was "Bella and Bronte". It is one of my favorites. I printed on my HP on Neenah Solar White. This image vs. others that I have purchased from Mo prints with thicker lines. I'm not sure if my printing is problematic or really something different with the image but I really struggled to heatset so I was a little unhappy with some of the smudging that I ended up with. I colored with Copic Markers. The Card Stock is SU! and Bazzill Basics. The DP is Imaginisce. I used scalloped Nesties, Prima Flowers, SU! Silver Twine, and SU! buttons to embellish. Also, SU! punches and SU! "Sweet Little Sentiments" stamp set for the sentiment - which I think was perfect for my card. Ribbon is stash. New test for my pictures - under flourescent bulb in my kitchen, old camera, and laying flat on the counter. I think getting better.

Challenge #53: Buttons

I am having fun with my new house mouse stamps - this challenge blog is the best salesman HM will ever have. I have two new Halloween Stamps so I'm sticking with the Halloween theme. My quest for nice digital pictures of my cards goes on....I have switched to my old digital camera. Current theory is that my Nikon needs a close-up lens (think $$$$) and I'm now trying my old digital point-n-shoot. Today's pictures have issues with shadows - hence my other problem - I virtually never have a chance to take my photos in daylight. As I said, the quest continues.

For the challenge, I used HM stamp "Mice Carrot" stamped on Neenah Solar White with Memento Tuxedo Black. I colored with copics - I just recently added new markers including the new sketch set with the 0000 markers. It is taking me a little time to understand them but the blending is amazing. I also used SU! Crystal Effects on the treat pumpkin. The card stock is SU! and Bazzill Basics. The ribbon and buttons are from my stash. I used two sets of Nesties - Peony for the mouse and Deckled Rectangles for the lettering. The letters/shadow letters are Don Juan and Cricut Create.
