Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge-- Around the World!!

Elaine is our hostess again this week at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog and she has another wonderful challenge theme.....Around the World, Ethnic image.  Here is my Jingle Dancer:

I think this is a perfect image for Elaine's Ethnic challenge, although it is not worldwide it could be.  I think of it as a Native American dancer.  She was so fun to color.  Because my only experience in Indian country was our time spent in Arizona and the abundance of Turquoise there so I always think of the two together.
The image was colored with copic markers and sponged with distress ink.
The turquoise satin ribbon was tied on the right side extension of the image matte.  The ribbon knot was tied and 3 silver rhinestones were added with my I-Rock tool.  BTW don't touch satin ribbon with the I-rock tool, yeah, it melts. this is the second piece of ribbon LOL.
I added a Dream Catcher pendant I have had in my collection forever and I love to use it with Indian images.
I can't wait to stop by the Challenge blog and see what the other DT members have created for this fun challenge. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Cathy, this is gorgeous! It reminds me of Arizona, too. I lived there for 30 years and the Indian culture was so beautiful. You said you spent time there... did you live there? btw, my son will be getting moved in at Offut next week so soon I'll be able to visit! Hugs, Barb
