Another image by Mo Manning
Coloured with Prisma pencils & blended with Sansador
Card & blue hand made paper from stash
Fishing paper froma CD bought years ago on E Bay from Kraft Cardz purely with images & backing papers for men. Its a great CD to have.
The fish I have also cut out from that CD & attached one to wire & it is standing proud of the card, although it doesnt show up too well in the photo. Attached with a brad.

I spotted this freebie at Pollycraft Designs
and fell in love with him so set to & made up a card.
Coloured with Prisma pencils & Sansador. Mounted onto bronze mirri board & plain brown card. Backing papers are Dovecraft Abstract Prints & Funky Vintage. I used a Marvy pen to make the faux stitching around the edges of the papers & edged the image with Versamagic Jumbo Java. Sentiment Stamping Up.
I just noticed that I had not used Sansador to blend on the owls breast, so have corrected it but the picture does not show that.
Entered into Paperplay challenge - Brown and.................. (I have used green)


After getting my cleaning & washing done early in the day, I spent a few hours this afternoon making the above card.
