Have you seen Mo Manning's Art?

Well, you should check out her illustrations! They are amazing! She is the sponsor for our Copic Creations Challenge today! Her website is Digital Pencil Too Or Mos' Digital Pencil.
She is giving away a store gift certificate for $20.00!!

I chose Mummu's bike to color for the challenge. We were to use any of our favorite colors/combinations. I love aqua AND my own bike is that color! I also love soft yellow. The skirt was trickier. I love green and orange but neither seemed like they would work, so Rose pink it is. (And, I do love pink, too!)
I wanted to contrast this active granny with a vintage card otherwise so I went to my K& Company pad of paper and found the perfect pattern! The card became 6" x 8" so I could show off the wonderful roses and aqua stripes! A little lace and one of my crocheted flowers, some ivory satin ribbon and I was all set.

You have until September 14 to join in this challenge with us! Please check the details on the Copic Creations Challenge blog linked above.

Colors I used:
Yellow: Y0000, Y21, YR21, YR24
Aqua: BG0000, BG10, Bg72
Rose: E93, R30, RV42, R32, R24, E53
(The pinks were just too bright. Don't forget when you don't want a bright color you can "tone it down" with a light grey or brown.)

Thanks for checking this out! Tomorrow I have another of Mo's illustrations to show you!
I'll be at work all day-can't wait to read what you think when I get home!

I don't think I can stop staring at the AMAZING piece of work. I may turn it into the background on my laptop for just a little while so I can 'study' it!

I love the antique sort of look to this. My Copic work is all bright but this muted coloring is different and I must try it sometime. Thanks! QP
