My favorite Mo design this year

One of my all time favorite stamp designers is Mo Manning. She never ceases to amaze me with her talent. Her images are so easy to use, adapt and create for any occasion. When I wanted to enter a Copic contest, I knew I had to use some of Mo's images for my project. (By the way, it got me on the Copic Marker Scrapbooking design team! :)

Once I saw all three of these ragamuffin carolers, I knew that would be my base. Adding the simple lamp post was a must. I enjoyed coloring these images a ton and love the way they came out.

I fussy cut each image so I could place them on this glittered music background paper. There are many layers of hand stitched patterned paper, cheesecloth, doilies, ribbon and some poinsettia flowers. I added some mini pine cones, stick pens, holly leaves and a small sentiment in the corner. This is all built on a wooden background that has a stand. It became a decorative present for my parents for Christmas.

I will be entering this project in the following challenges:

Mo's Digital Challenge #115 - 2011 Favorite Mo Project
Card Crafter's Circle #3 - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs #126 - Winter Wonderland
Paper Sundaes #100 - Celebrate

Thanks for stopping by - I hope this next year brings you all the joy and happiness you can handle!
Happy New Year!
