Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #23 --- Three Punches

AACCKKK!  I've had so much on my mind lately that I nearly forgot to post this!  I didn't get the photo in natural light, so there is a bit too much yellow.  Yuk.  But, here is a quick post to show my card for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #23.  This week the challenge required the use of three punches.  What a cool concept for a challenge! 

I love this new illustration of Sydney on Easter.  Always a fan of frilly dresses and pantaloons (bloomers) this was very fun to color.  I've been trying really hard to make note of the Copics I used by writing them on the back of the image in the margins.  But then I used most of the margins and adhered it to the card........ so, suffice to say I used yellows and yellow reds.  The designer paper is from Making Memories Flower Patch collection and is so perfect for spring and Easter.  The flowers are a variety of silk flowers stems.

Now to the punches:  All are Martha Stewart.  The bottom edge is the popular lattice style. For the center piece I tried out the new corner/border punch-around-the-page coordinates.  This is the pansy pattern.  Technically it is two separate punches but one design.  I like it!  For good measure I used one of the Butterfly punches and added pearls to the body.


So, a quick thank you to you all for stopping by!  I can't wait to see what the next challenge will be over at Mo's!  If you aren't into Mo's illustrations yet --- watcha waitin' for?  They are digital and fun, fun fun!
