The Simple Life

This week on Mo's Challenge Blog our challenge is to use fall colors and limited embellishments. I chose to use Mo's Raking image and then build a scene around it.

I started by printing the image onto Cryogen white paper with my inkjet printer. I also printed a mask onto Eclipse tape and cut it out. With the image masked, I added the trees around it and the grass below it. Then using Copic markers:
Leaves - Y21, YR14, YR18, YG23
Trees - E42, E43, E44
Grass - G40, E51
Skin - E000, E00, E02
Hair - E09
Shirt & Sneakers - Y15, R37, G24
Jeans - B91, B93, B95
I airbrushed B23 into the sky.

Finished size is 6 inches square. All other stamps are from Stampscapes Rubber stamps. Please visit the Challenge blog for more great inspiration from the design team. You can enter the challenge for a chance to win a free Mo Manning image.

Also Mo's Dream Team is hosting a blog hop today. Please start at Lori Boyd's blog for even more inspiration using Mo's fabulous images.

The boy in a pile of leaves is the best. It really captures a kid in the fall. The cheerleader is cute too. Edna B.
