The Thing is Bling!

Hello!! Today is our Monthly Mo Blog Hop for Mo's Digital Pencil and as you have gathered from the title our focus is on glitter and other shiny things! If you've come here from the excellent Peri you are right on track. The hop started with our host, the talented Michelle (Shell). I used Summer Fairy Finna for my card.


I went a little crazy trying to use different sparkles. Her wings are a little heavily covered with Diamond Dust Glitter Glass. I used my usual Stardust Stickles on her suit. You can't see it Sorry :( but there is a shimmery spray on the woodsy background. I didn't want to spray the image because I always have the fear of ruining it.
I only used one designer paper (Basic Grey-Wisteria) because I thought it looked just like she is next to a stream in a pretty woodsy clearing. there are some leaves in the top corner, but I added more with an old vine stamp in Mellow Moss. The edges of the paper are sponged in Mellow Moss and a little Almost Artichoke. Then I added some green gemstones to the corners.
(I don't really like the lame flower in the corner, but I had to do something! It's colored and has some stickles on it)
My couch is covered with the copics I used to color this evening (Wed.-late again!) so let's see if I can tell you what they are!
Skin: E000, E11 and E30
Wings: G0000, and G12 (also grass)
Stream: BG10
Suit: BV000, BV31, BV01, and a touch ofBV02


Next, please hop on over to our Debbie to she what beauty she has created!

I can't wait to see what these wings look like when they are dry! Hopefully an improvement!
Enjoy the hop! And have a great day!
Cheryl
