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

Hello everyone!

First I would like to thank from the heart to all those who have been visiting my blog lately. So many talented people have encouraged me with their kind words I feel I don't deserve. I really know where I stand and that I have to work much more on my coloring and shadowing and highlights and so on; I'll hopefully do that as soon as I can afford to buy more markers:). I hear people around saying they don't remember what colors they've been using on a certain image. Well, that's not gonna happen in my case cause I only have a bunch of them:)). Sometimes I don't put them down because I don't think I'm an example to follow on coloring.

For entering Mo Manning's DP Challenge I chose this beautiful image- Irma and Vieno which features two Finnish little girls. Well, luckily Mo stated that they were Finnish because I couldn't see any light blond hair around and that's how I understand the "concept" of being Finnish:). There is a large selection of digis with people/children from all around the world in Mo's shop. It is so sweet of her to think globally! I guess this is part of being a great artist too.
Now, back to my image. It was colored with Promarkers back for Christmas but forgot to use. I only had to find some matching papers which are Webster Pages- Waiting for Santa collection and some embellishments, namely roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbons from stash and dew drops from Robin's Nest. I don't know exactly where the sentiment came from ( I guess Papermania) but I liked the gold letters so I mounted it on a nestie too.



 Thanks for stopping by! It's always a pleasure hearing from people who actually understand one's madness for crafting and stamping!

Hugs, iulia

This is just beautiful! I love everything about it! Your coloring is exceptional, and the flowers, papers, embellishments, and stitching are perfect. Glad you shared it with us in Mo's Challenge.

Lulia! You have done an amazing job here, no need to feel the least bit intimidated by other crafters. Your work ROCKS and can stand on its own side by side with any of the brilliant cardmakers out there who have 1000 copics on their table.

I also have only a coffee can selection of copics so don't use them all that much, but its not so much what you have its how you use it and you use your supplies brilliantly!

This is a wonderful card and I'm glad you could join us again at Mo's :-)

Hi Lulia :) Thanks so much for visiting my blog, and your lovely comments - they mean the world.

This card is stunning! Gorgeous gorgeous layout and DP and all the little details are fabulous. I too dont have many colours and only use pro-markers atm as I cant really afford to change my media. I would love to try distress ink and copics, but maybe I can build up to them in the future. Your colouring is fantastic and this image is coloured perfectly!

Im going to be entering Mo's challenge this week, I love her stuff!

have a great day

hugs

This is an adorable card and you should be happy with it! I know what you are saying as I too feel like I have so much to learn and am doing it with limited colors of copics. I just have to remind myself that all of these wonderful artists started out just like us! You have nothing to be worried about though. Your work is awesome.
