Mary Tapping

Hello everyone. I hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

Well, it has been a very non-productive week for me during these past weekdays. Too busy at the office. Too much work, too little time. Have been working late everyday. Getting home too late and too tired and just had time to get some sleep and head back out to work the next day. Yeah, that's why I've been MIA. Okay, that's enough moaning and groaning from me. LOL.

I started working on this yesterday and finally put the finishing touches on the card this morning. This is my very first card ever with a digital-stamp image. I've been seeing Mo Manning's images on cards all over the place and I just love them. I now have several of her wonderful images, but decided to try my hand first on colouring this 'Mary Tapping'. Mo's images can be obtained at her blog, Mo's Digital Pencil too!

I chose this Mary Tapping image as I needed a girl image for the challenge at Passion for Promarkers. The theme for their challenge 15 is girly and glittery.

For this card I have used the sketch from Friday Sketchers Challenge blog, that was provided by Heidi for their challenge 68.

At the A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge blog, the theme for their challenge 67 is distressing.

Since this was my first digital image, I thought I'd started small and practiced colouring on a smaller version of Mary Tapping before moving to a larger image. It didn't turned out too bad I thought, so I used that image for the inside of my card.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
