Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Paper Piecing and Happy Birthday Mo!!!

It's Thursday and that means Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge. This week our hostess with the mostest is once again Elaine, and hasn't she had some wonderful Challenges this month?  This week is no exception.  Elaine chose for us to do paper piecing.  Not something I do a lot, because I am addicted to coloring, but I gave it a shot!!!:

 I have to admit I absolutely LOVE this rabbit called Late.  To me, he is the well loved vintage rabbit, so I always seem to gravitate towards Vintage cards with him.  In case you wondered, the paper pieced pieces are the shirt sleeves and body.  Printed onto a turquoise paisley dp and cut out.  The dp later below is the same piece.

The turquoise paisley dp was masked with my Clock Works Tim Holtz masks and airbrushed with my copic Airbrush system.  The bottom kraft dp was also airbrushed with the same masks in browns.  The vintage flowers and bunnies dp is from my LSS and I believe it was BoBunny from Easter time.

The Thanks tag resembles a pocket watch in shape, pretend the cover is closed, okay, close your eyes and envision it is a pocket watch, got the picture!! LOL.  The ribbon is a special purchase I got at the same LSS and is handmade by a local lady and it is dyed and wrinklie and perfect for Vintage cards. 
My final embellishment was my favorite Teal hand made paper flower in the upper right hand corner. 

I feel like my MoJo is finally back,  I haven't felt like I have been creating cards worthy of my position lately, but now, I feel like I am back on the right track.  Thanks for your patience with me.

Also want to mention that today is Mo Manning's Birthday... A Huge MWAHHHHH!!! Happy Birthday to one of the most talented artists of real-life... you know that look.... images we all relate to!!!

Be sure you stop by the rest of the DT's blogs to check out their wonderful creations.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
