Mo's Challenge Blog #1

Mo Manning has got a brand new challenge blog up and running.

For the very first challenge the card had to be made in 'Bella's' favourite colour, which is purple, or perple as Bella calls it. Also to include a Mo Manning stamp. Now that bit's not hard as she is the most amazingly talented artist and there are plenty of her gorgeous digital creations to choose from.

I opted for a brand new one called Tea Party. Now anyone who already reads my blog will know that, like Bella, purple is also my favourite colour so I set off to colouring this one out with all shades of purple. I added a couple of blues a touch of green and some yellow for her hair as she was in danger of being too purple.

After I finished colouring her in then the problems started. Had I lost my purple mojo. Nothing seemed to work. Was she shaded in the 'wrong' purple, is there a wrong purple?

I had some rather nice Kanban Duo Reflections card, which comes in a plain matt sheet, a mirri sheet and an acetate sheet and I settled one of the matt ones for the background, but somehow I managed to ruin both it and the mirri version, leaving me with only the acetate one left to play with.

The frame is a Carol Wilson one and I backed it with some silver mesh fabric, and lifted the whole thing with foam tape.

The ribbon was a jewelled self adhesive one, but I didn't like the gems so I changed them for the lilac flower gems instead.

There are some gorgeous DT cards for this particular challenge. Do please go and check them out.

My next DS from Mo will have to be the card making one I think.
