Mo Mannigng Digital Images


I love Mo Manning's images! In the past I have had some of her wood stamps, but now I also have some of her digital images. Digital stamps are new for me and I have had to learn what paper to use in my printer and recently - and most importantly - to heat set the ink before coloring with markers!!!

I had received my digital imges shortly before we went to dog sit with Brandy this last time and so I printed LOTS of them to work on while we were there and it was so frustrating as the black ink would smear when touched with the markers! It took forever to color without smudging - especially the skin colors!

Here Jim and I are working on our coloring. You can see I was being very productive even if the coloring was frustrating! :<) Can't waste all of those lovely images, so will be making them into cards and projects even if they are not perfect!

Here is one of my first colored digital images - before learning to heat set. Isn't she the sweetest little girl? You can see Mo's images at Mo also has illustrated many children's books - click on the icon "Check Out My Books" in the right hand column on her blog. Her artistic talent in capturing the characters in her images is awesome! Mo also has a challenge blog featuring great samples at

Thanks for stopping by today!

Wishing you a nice day. We have had a break in the weather for the past few days here in this part of WI - and even though the high temperatures are to return, it has been lovely!
