Mo Manning - Back to...Kindergarten

Hi there sweet peeps! It's challenge day at Mo's Digital Pencil Too and a chance for you to get to play with some gorgeous Mo images and some:


I must admit I haven't thought much about buttons when I made this huuuuuge card, it was something I had in mind for a while now and took me about 4 hours, lots of patience and heaps of double-adhesive

First, I printed a smaller image but part of the details and charm of each of the little guys would have been unnoticeable, so I had to enlarge it.
I wanted to make something for my nephew's teacher in kindergarten. My sister just loves Mo's images and when I showed her several boys to choose from she couldn't make up her mind. So, eventually, I thought I could add more characters and make a "little" kindergarten scene. Love it! I'll be definitely making a similar one these days for my little one too:

I know, too many colors in there:)) I just couldn't find some appropriate papers for this really big card (it's about 10 per 7 inches) and, well, since it has kids on, colors are a must:)

The sentiment is in Romanian and says:
"Wish you lots of health, patience and success in  the new school year!"

Stamps: Mo Manning- Bossy, Two Toby, Tolerance,  Moving,  On the Pot girl.
Coloring medium: copics, promarkers
DP: Echo Park- A Walk in the Park and some Cosmo Cricket
Embelishments: flowers, buttons and ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts
Die-cuts: Go Kreate
Sentiment: computer generated

A happy lot, aren't 
If any of you sets out to make something similar with more than two images and doesn't really figure out how, please send me an e-mail. I'll be happy to help you out. But I only know how to do this in Photoshop, so make sure you have it beforehand.

Please notice I have also included some tiny buttons, so I'm in for this week's! 

I also have some challenges for my card:

Wild Orchid Challenges- Layer it up
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Pile It On Patterned Paper

Thank you so much for visiting today!
I'll be happy to hear from you!
Take care,

Wow! I don't even want to guess how many hours it took to color all those images! They say copics are quicker than pencils and I sure hope so cos that would have taken me about 10 hours to color alone, never mind put together. Beautiful beautiful card1
