Mo's DP2 Challenge ~ Monochrome


Hi Guys!
Have you missed me? lol
I can't believe its been almost a week since I posted. Yikes! Well I have family visiting from out of State and just have a lot on but it feels good to type my little bit on the WWW and see what everyone's been up to.
This week at Mo's DP2 we have a new challenge for you and a bit of news!
First the challenge!
Monochrome
Yes, I admit its a bit of a challenge for me, the woman of many colors but you see that I stuck to the theme. (as best I could! lol)
My papers are DCWV and the flourishes are a die from Spellbinders. 
Coloring is all done with Prismacolors.
Flower is my own and feather is curtesy of my sweet ducks. :-D Its called recycling. lol


OK, so now for the news! Are you sitting down??

We all know how much you all love Mo images and how many of you would dearly love to be play with us on the DT. Well we're starting something new and exciting. The first two weeks of every month, all those who play the weekly challenge have the chance to be considered for a GD position. Just put GD after your name to be considered. We as a team will vote on the entries and the winner will be GD for the following month.
This process will continue each and every month.
How exciting is that!

This is so sweet, Dorcas! I am always in awe of your talent and each new card brings added astonishment. You work magic with those colored pencils! I love Mo's designs and as soon as I can get a couple colored up, I may actually enter one of the challenges. Sounds like great fun though I could never live up to the standards you have set! LOL Thanks for being a constant source of inspiration.
