Mo's Sketch Challenge - April



Hi everyone, I was lucky enough to be one of the winners in Mo's recent Bloghop and received a $10 coupon to spend in her shop.
As most of you probably already know, I adore ALL of Mo's images and due to this I have an ever growing 'wishlist' on my desk at all times, so it was simply a case of crossing a few off and placing an order....well, actually, it wasn't! Obviously, I couldn't just order my coupon value when there were so many other lovelies screaming 'buy me, buy me!' could !?
Suffice to say, you may be seeing a few (??!!!) new images in the not too distant future, starting with this one.
I couldn't wait to start colouring my new babies, so I thought I'd enter this month's challenge at Mo's Dream Team.

Card Details:
* Image -  Mo's Digital Pencil 'Fairy3' 
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Papermania Inspirations 'Earth Tones'
* Punch - MS 'Double Scallop'
* Sentiment - PC generated
* Everything else from my stash

I think this gorgeous fairy may have taken that sentiment a little too literally, but I LOVE this more mature and chubby version of a fairy, just perfect for making cards for all us mature and chubby ladies.

OoooH, Chrissie!! This is one of my favorite Mo Manning images, too! I love it because it reminded me of a middle-aged Barbie doll, a bit on the chubby side. Since I often am called Barbie, and I am a bit on the chubby side these days, it helps me to laugh at myself. Your coloring is superb! Um, you aren't going to believe this, but we did it again. Great minds think alike and I will be posting the fairies for this GDT sketch, too. Good luck, my friend! I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya!

Love 'n' hugs,
Barb
