Mo Manning #2 Bat Cat!

Here is another of Mo Manning's illustrations that I love! There really are so many and I have purchased a few!
Please see yesterday's post for the details on the Copic Creations Challenge to use your favorite colors. This uses another favorite of mine-orange
I used Y15, Y35, Y38, YR16 and YR16. When I color something orange I always start with a more yellow color and build toward the desired color.
I used a Spellbinders medallion (hearts, I think) The pieces would all stack nicely, but as I was playing with the layout I thought the off center looked neat! the yellow circle looks like a moon and the spellbinder's medallion looks like wrought iron to me.
I added stickles to the mask edge, but believe me I really wanted to sparkle the whole darn thing! I put candy dots in the corners! these are my friend, Lisa's favorite, and I remember eating the real ones off the paper too!
The deep blue is Adirondack Stream sponged on. the color is intense!
Thanks for coming here again! I can't tell you how happy your comments make me!

Your card yesterday is fabulous and I love this one too. I am working on a card with this cat. Using flock for the mask. I hope it turns out as cute.

Cheryl
I found out about the Mom Manning images earlier this week. I haven't done anything about them as I am not sure how it is done. Now the brightest star in the sky when it comes to computers, you know. Mind giving me some advice?
