Mo's Digital Pencil 2 Challenge #66 --- A Trip Around the World

It's time for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge:  A Trip Around the World.  Mo has so many wonderful images of children and grown-ups that reflect the world's diversity.  I was very excited to be the winner of the drawing last week and I chose this image which has been on my wish list:  Little Girl in Kimono

Recently I found the Cricket Pagoda cartridge on clearance.  Oh, what a find that was! I love the delicate cutouts of this set.  The background dp is a very pretty print by My Mind's Eye that I cut into a fan.  Then using various scraps I Cricket cut out the tree and the pagoda pieces.  The flowers are EK Success Sticko and the dragonfly and butterfly are rhinestone accents from Prima. 

The image is colored with my Copics.  On the sleeves I used a feathering technique to blend the pink and tan (I forgot to make note of the color numbers).  Oh, she's such a pretty little girl --- so is the little kitty!

Thank you for stopping by today and for more stops around the world be sure to hop over to the Digital Pencil Challenge.  What a nice way to see the world!
