Feathered Mo!

What by chance is a feathered Mo? is a card that uses THE most adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  It is called End of Summer.  The minute I saw it I KNEW I NEEDED it!!  I spent quite a bit of time coloring it in with my copics.  I really wanted to do it justice! I hope you like the little hint of circles on her shirt!   BUT for the light yellow background, I hadn't worked on it before the rest of the image and didn't want to mess it up so I did it with my prismacolor pencils/gamsol.  Now you know the Mo part of the title.......the feathered part of the title is the background she sits on.  It is called Feathered Tie Dye and is a technique from the December 08 newsletter.  When that technique came out I made a TON.  It was such a fun thing to do that I just couldn't stop.  Now, I have wads of the paper in my stash and it just worked wonderful for this image.  The small words (which I have no idea where they came from) were stamped on white but I colored it with air brushed copics.  I hope you enjoy this image and want to try the technique for yourself.  You'll go crazy just like I did!!
