DP2 Challenge #138 - Anything Goes

Hello my sweet friends...I hope you're having a fabulous week and are looking forward to the weekend. I know that I am!!

It's challenge day at Mo's DP2 and because it's the first Thursday of the month it's "Anything Goes". So grab yourself any of Mo's awesome images and create something wonderful!

For my image I used "Mummu in Summer". I could color the Mummu images forever they are so delightful. Here's where you can find Mummu!

Recently I took the Copic Intermediate Coloring Course and I've tried to apply some of the information I learned to coloring this goes!

I know I'll need to practice, practice, practice, but I'm pretty pleased with how my first attempt came out.

Here's a closer look at that coloring...very different from what I had taught myself to do...

Now for a gander at the inside. Kinda simple - no flowers and not much fru-fru!

Now let's move on to the artistic/cockeyed view...

Because I worked longer than usual on coloring this image, I didn't keep track of the colors. I'll try to do better in the future. DP's are from my stash, CS is SU Pacific Point, Bazzill White and Green Xpress It Blending Card. Flowers are from WOC, pearls and seambinding are from my stash. Punches are from Martha Stewart. Sentiment on front is from Michael's $1 bin, sentiment on the inside is from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my latest creation. Y'all come back now ya hear!

Blessings and hugs,
