More of "Mo"




Today's post is a "twofer." I usually don't post two cards together but these are both by the same talented artist (see link below) and they're both so very different. The first features our wonderful ol' gal Mummo again, and this time she's off on a joyous bike ride. Ya gotta love the spunk this gal has. I again paper-pieced her skirt and tried to make it something that looked like what she would wear.








The second card is Harvest Dance, and this was quite a contrast from Mummo but fun to color. My light box only has one light that is operational so I'm sorry that my pics don't capture all the color that I can see in person. Maurie Manning, "Mo" of "digital pencil too", has some great artwork to offer as many of you have already found and commented on. I hope you like my rendition of these two great works and be sure to check out her store for more great images. Also, don't forget the first FREE digital image and challenge coming Monday to "There's Magic in the Air." Thanks, as always, for dropping by and have a wonderful day.

I just love these images, I am not into digi stamps, but these images are so awesome I may have to break down and get some :)

Karen -- GORGEOUS, and yes, that is exactly a skirt Mummu would wear. And flowers she would pick. And a bike she would ride. And a barrette she would put in her hair . . . xoxoMo LOVE the Harvest Dance too!

Karen these are absolutely FABULOUS, you just seem to bring these adorable images to life. I am so loving the Mummo images she just brings a smile to my face everytime i see your cards. and the Harvest Dance is also great but intimidates me a bit, too many small spaces, but you did an AMAZING job with it!! :0)

That is such a pretty scene with the dancing fairies. Great colors you chose too, and applied with such skill! Its worth framing, I think!

OH I forgot to comment on the biker lady! It sure brings a smile to my face, and at the same time, makes me want to cut down on the amount of fried food I eat! LOL I don't want to look like that one day! ROFL! Gorgeous coloring and piecing and I love that she's framed by an oval.

You're absolutely right, these images are amazing -- Mummo, especially. So realistic, yet fun and whimsical. So much character. Wow! Congrats on your guest spot. I know you'll have a lot of fun and you'll thoroughly delight your readers with what you create. These cards are just fantastic!
