Mo's Challenge #188

The Children's Challenge!

Mo's Challenge this week is to use at least one image of a child from Mo's collection on a card or project. 

I used "Howdy" on this card. She's absolutely a joy to color and comes with two sentiments, neither of which is on this card! I used a white gel pen and fine black marker to simulate a bandana print on her neck scarf, and a white gel pen for the polka dots on her skirt.
This is a retirement card for one of the many people who are leaving our school this year. I'd better get busy! I have several more to make!

Images: "Howdy" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Computer-generated sentiment (Lariat font)

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Thin blue marker, Mounting tape, Circle punches

Papers: SU! Real Red, Kraft, Neenah white, Corrugated cardboard, Assorted DP

Embellishments: Natural twine, Chipboard stars
This is also the week for children to enter their cards and projects using one of Mo's cute images.
Read all about it on Mo's Challenge Blog!

Looking forward to seeing what you and the kids will do for a chance to win!
