Mo's Digital Pencil--Die's and Punches Challenge

The challenge this week at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge is to use a Die Cut or punch.  What a surprise... I chose to use my new favorite die cut, the Cuttlebug Daisy flower, on this fantastic Mo's image called, More:

I love the Mo's images created from classic novels such as Oliver Twist  and this is no exception.  I wanted to keep the classic neutral tones of the times the novel was written and the vintage tone.   My die cut is, as mentioned above, the daisy flower which is a kit from Cuttlebug which includes the outside petals, inside petals, the inside circle center base, and the petals, which I did not add to this flower.  I added a dew drop to the center of this one to match the dew drops on the photo corners on the other corners. 

The photo corners started out silver but I airbrushed them brown to tone them down to match the tone of the card.  Even though the image is called More, I kept the card very simple to show off the wonderful image. 

Be sure to stop by the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT has created for you this week and grab an image to play along, Mo has lots of new images for you, always fun when Mo has been in an extra creative mood and there are so many wonderful new images in the shop for Halloween and Christmas.  I know I have a long list :)  Be sure to play along in the challenge for a chance to win an image...always an added bonus....

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.

I think that vintage style is perfect for this Mo's image, the little face of this poor child...omg i'd love to give him some food through the screen!
