Mo's DP2 Challenge- Different Cultures

Hi there sweet friends! I'm happy to share with you a new card I just loved making. Maybe because I rarely make a card these days I feel really great when I do :D. I wanted badly to color up this new Mo image and when I saw Elaine's theme for this week's challenge at Digital Pencil Too I've started racking my brains on how to use it and make it fit the challenge I can be very stubborn when it comes to my cards:)))
So I just enjoyed coloring this sweet adorable couple here and playing a bit with skin tones. I never use the same colors for skin tones and always mix my copics with promarkers- it works for me maybe other crafters will tell you different. I just enjoy not following rules in colouring but I admire those who do.

Here's my card:

Image- Mo Manning-Cutting the Rug
Medium- copics/promarkers
DP: some mixture of quite a few marks
Embellishments: Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, ribbon and pearl string, The Ribbon Girl lace
Dies: Magnolia Doohikeys- Hearts swirl

the inside:

and a close-up of the image:

That's it from me today; hope you will join us at Mo's this week for our World Traveler challenge. Mo has lots of images depicting different cultures and customs. Feel free to visit her shop here.

I would like to send big hugs particularly to those people who come here on a permanent basis; your continual support is very much appreciated! Thank you my new followers and visitors, hope you will find something to inspire you in my work:)

Iulia, you coloring is just amazing! I always love to see what you've done and should sit and study at your feet. You get such wonderful contrast and great shadows and highlights. Your paper choices would scare me to try to work with but you pull it off to perfection. This card is just another fabulous and stunning piece of art from the heart! Hugs...Barb <><
