Spilled Lemons



Hello Everyone,
I have been "eye balling " Mo Manning's digi images for quite some time and decided to take the plunge and buy a couple. What I like about Mo's digital Pencil Shop is that she has something for everyone! No matter what your ethinticity is, she has an image for you! I brought a couple of her Afro-American images and needless to say, I will be back for more!



This gift set is going to a childhood friend of mine who celebrated her birthday this past Friday. We have been friends since the third grade and I wanted to create something special for her. When my eyes locked onto this image, I knew that I had to have it! In fact, this image (Spilled Lemons) chose me! The facial expression on this little girls face is just like the facial expression my girlfriend! Just look at those button eyes.....I love it!



I also made a small purse out of the left over design paper that was used on the card. I tried to give an illusion of the sky and grassy grounds with my Copic Airbrush System. I was a little tired after coloring my image and decided to take a shortcut by airbrushing the background colors.


Card Details........
digi image Spilled Lemons by Mo Manning, sentiment SU, cardstocks Bazzill and Papertrey Ink, design paper Imaginsce, inks Copic Markers and Copic Airbrush System. To embellish my card I used ribbon, Friskars Water Threading Punch, sm. edged scallop scissors, Liquid Pearls, half pearls, flower and liquid glass (on the lemons).

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
