Cutting The Rug

So here's a happy card for you!
 What's not to love about this image! Isn't it great? I tried something a little different here. I used my trusty pencils, as usual,  but I colored on pastel paper (as in for pastel pencils, not pastel colored paper). It has more tooth to it which can be good and bad. You can get a lot of pigment down but it does still leave a texture as pencils don't fill in the tooth as much as powdery pastels would do.
Anyway! It's good to experiment!
So this week's challenge at Mo's is
Singing/ Dancing

Image: Mo Manning "Cutting The Rug"
Circle sentiment: Whimsy Stamps
Die: Sizzex
Twine: The Twinery
Pencils: Lyras and Prismacolors

Hope you enjoy the challenge this week. :)
Have a great weekend!
ps) For the rest of July we will be having a Guest Designer Call at Mo's so be sure to play along with the challenges and put GD after your name to be considered!! The GD position will last 3 months. So its kind of a big deal ;)
All the best!
