Bear squeezes

     Boy is this week passing fast!  It's Thursday already so that means it's time for another challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil.  The wonderful Debbie Lanci is our hostess this week and she wants to see "Buttons and Bows".
     I don't know about you, but I am going nuts over all the gorgeous My Mind's Eye paper pads that are coming out.  Isn't this color combination just perfect?  :-)  I've used Quite Contrary--Jack and Jill  for this card.  The image is called "Love Ya" and can be found in Mo's store.  There's just nothing like a snuggly teddy bear.  :-)
     I've used Copics and some Prismas to color the image.  I tried using a little Colorless Blender fluid on a rag to get a furry texture on Mr. Bear.  I was scared to death I was going to mess it up, but I like how it came out. It's subtle, but it's there.  I also tried to make the dots on her outfit match the paper and used a couple of grey Prismas to shade around the image so the white would stand out more.
     Hope you can play along this week.  :-)  Remember, you have to use a Mo's image, or two :-), to be eligible, and as our wonderful Pat says, if you don't play you can't win.  Mo is giving away one $5.00 voucher for every 25 entries so break out those buttons and ribbons, check out the amazing DT projects for some great inspiration this week, and come play along.
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Ladybug Crafts Ink--anything goes
Cupcake Craft Challenge--going dotty
Incy Wincy--Tic Tac Toe (Twine, buttons, real or faux stitching)
Creative Inspirations Paint--babies
Paper Sundaes--feminine flair
Sweet Stampin--lets see those layers
Totally Gorjuss--anything goes with a button

Bear hugs to you!
