Flying high with Mo's "Airplane"

Hi there... not going to waffle on today, as I'm feeling a bit under the weather, but REALLY wanted to post this card on here, as I super happy with it... 
The card features one of Mo's recently created digital images "Airplane" which can be purchased from HERE... as soon as I saw it I just HAD to have it!! I knew I would have a MILLION uses for this little gorgeous image. 
and the first use, seeing as it was recently the beautiful Mo Manning's birthday!! Who could resist a Bright cheery birthday card... 
Funny story.. (lol to me not waffling.. as if) I created a different card from scratch THEN coloured the image...sat it on the card, and the card looked SO PALE against the vibrant colours of the image, I just HAD to completely redo my card from scratch to make it suit better!! :) 

So here is the new and IMPROVE version of my Birthday card, in honour of Mo (Maurie) Manning!
 Card has been completed in my current Shadow box style, that I'm enjoying SO MUCH to make!! It just creates a depth and gives added interest to the card I think.... ohhh and aren't those colours soooo bright!!! Colouring has been done using copics!
 Digital Image "Airplane" by Mo Manning, colouring in Copics, with added White Polychromo pencil for accent
 As you can see by this photo, I have added a layer of Iridescent paint to the glass panels of his Goggles and Aeroplane, followed by Glossy Accents to give it a slightly glassy look.. :) hey.. I was having fun!!  I had to literally pull my hands away from the glossy accents to prevent myself from turning every balloon into a shinny little Glossy Accent ball!!! :) (Addictive Stuff)
 This Inside Panel, free of sentiment so that you can use this card in whatever manner you see fit.. As a birthday.. or going away celebration, or coming home celebration!! Completely up to you!!
(this card will eventually be for sale.. Once my shop is up and running... LOL.. EVENTUALLY!!!!.. Still working on things .. teehee)
