Something sweet!

Hello everyone! Today I am back with another card for Mo's Digital Pencil and our hostess this week is the wonderful Tracy and she is asking us to make something along the theme of "Something sweet or good to eat". Now, with the selection available at Mo's this should be a piece of cake, yes, pun intended!

I have chosen to use an older image, this is Dormouse and also my first attempt to color an entire image in pencils. I like the mouse but think I will be sticking to my copics.

Papers are an older MME pad and sorry but I didn't keep track of the pencils I used since I was just sorta grabbing whatever I thought might work. The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps and I have added some puffy paint and a touch of glitter to the cupcake. Okay, we love to see what you are able to show us so please play along and you will also be in the running for  a $5 gift certificate from the store. I can't wait to see what new images are coming up for winter!

Hi Amanda, this turned out very cute. I think you did a great job with your pencils, but I am with you. I think I like my Copics more. I do want to try the color with Copics then use your pencils to highlight or add a touch here or there to the card. I don't know that I am brave enough for that just yet. lol,,. If I colored up something with my pens and then ruined it by adding some pencil in the wrong place I would be so sad. :O( Anyway my friend I really like both your stamps here. I think the sentiment one is just adorable! Great papers as well. Some of my favorite. Hope you have a great day. I am off to work now. Hugs, Lisa

Bwahahaha! "Piece of cake"...I love it!! And I love this card, girlfriend!! I think your pencil coloring is gorgeous...but I know what you mean about Copics. They're just so effortless...I feel like I have to think so hard when I color with pencils! hehe! Seriously, though, your coloring is fabulous!! I love the way you made this sweet Mo image the absolute focal point! I love it! Sending hugs up north to you!! Pat Frank

Well girl I see nothing wrong with your pencil work. I haven't quite figured out how to blend as well with them as the Copics. The added texture on the cupcake look great too. Hugs!
