Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Furry Friends

Iulia gave us a bit of a challenge this week to use Furry Friends in our Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge.  My favorite Mo furry friend has got to be the ever faithful Bronte who has been an integral part of the Mo's banners and pages since I have know her, so I added Bronte to another of my favorite images for this season which is the scarecrow from her Wizard of Oz series last year.  So here they are:

The image was colored with copic markers and bronte was cut out and popped up with mounting foam and mounted on the PLAY ticket sentiment tag.
The cornstalks were cut out with my cricut and then accented with a copic marker and embellished with i-rock gems and lined up behind the garden fence which the frolicking scarecrow is supposed to be guarding....I think he forgot what he was supposed to be doing when Bronte came to play.
The flowers in the upper left corner are some of the rolled flowers I made last week-end with my cricut and I thought the greens and gold coordinated with the rest of the colors used.
I added  faux stitching around the layers added a more rustic touch and a green twill crinkle ribbon spritzed with glimmer mist and my Furry Friends card is complete.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by the challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT has created. 

Have a wonderful creative day.

Very clever and cute as can be! I love to see Mo's illustrations combined to create a new image as well as using other tools as you did with the Cricket.
