TGIF!!! Welcome to our first inspiration challenge of 2013. I always thought it would be cool to have inspiration challenges. I see them all the time on blogs - some of the colours you would never think of putting together. When I saw our inspiration colours I thought what am I going to do - follow the colours or the design. As I went through some of my 6x6 paper packs I came across the perfect paper that contained the exact colours - well pretty close.
Then I saw this image sitting on my desk - I pulled it out last week to colour and never did, so this is what I went with. I'm using another Mo Manning image called The Big Guy Jogging.
As always, I stamped the image using black memento on bella's bestest paper. I used copics to colour and pencils for the shading.
The top right corner left a large white space and wanted to fill that in a bit, so I decided on this little sentiment from Verve. I stamped it on a piece of scrap dp and then cut it out using Verve's ribbon banner die. I tied a piece of red twine around it and then tucked the end in behind the layers.
