Monochromatic Blueberry Girl

Hi everyone!

Just another quick post to share a card I made today. I found some time to play while the kids played in the backyard so I decided to try my luck at Mo's digital challenge.

The theme this week is

monochromatic.

For my card I used the image "Blueberry Girl" available here in Mo's shop. It is one of my many favorite Mo Manning digis.


It has been colored with derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil. The skin was colored with copic markers.

I used papers from My Minds Eye, and card stock from stampin up and Neenah. The flowers were done by layering a couple of Martha Stewart punches and sticky pearls. Flourish is by Tim Holtz. To finish it off I did some sewing with my sewing machine, and then added some glitter.

Here is a close up of the cute image.



Here are the challenges I am combining:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you liked my card!

Have a great weekend!!

Hi, Ellie! This is wonderful! I love everything about it; the distressing and stitching, the color and coloring, the embellishments! I just colored this image up yesterday as one of a series with Mo's other 'berry' girls.
I love the picture of your cats! Looks just like my two guys!
