Mo Manning's Digital Pencil Challenge #65 -- It's Playtime!

My creative mojo has returned!  I think it took an extra-long holiday, but I've been making cards like crazy this week.  This is my second post today, so please scroll on down to see the first one. Actually, I think the challenges like Mo's DP2, have me all fired up!  This week the challenge is "playtime" and Mo has so many beautiful images of children at play that I could have colored up a dozen or more!  I've had this image of "Diva" for awhile and just had to have some fun with it.

What little girl hasn't played dress-up?  My mom always had clothes and shoes and jewelry for me to dress up in.  It seemed I just couldn't wait to grow into them!  Now, Mom didn't have the feather boas but I'm sure I would have totally strutted my stuff if she did! 

Diva is colored with Copics and I used a silver metallic ball-point pen for her crown and beads.  The dp is from the Que Sera Sera stack by K & Co.  Feather embellishments were a must, as well as the rhinestone flourishes.  Oh, to be able to play dress-up again!  The trouble is, I not only grew into Mom's clothes, but went on to outgrow them.  She is such a skinny little thing!

If you are not having enough fun then hop on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge blog to see the DT's playtime fun.

This card is priceless! Shelbie had a feather boa she adorned herself with, and a tiara...this image brought that to mind. :) Love how you added the feathers to the card too.
