It was a Mystery

............to me what April was going to send us with our Mystery package last month. But, isn't this image a beauty?!

I'm a part of a Mystery swap group on SCS. Each month a different hostess sends out images, the same image to each swapper. When you get the images, you make 4 cards all the same with that image and mail them back to her. She then swaps them out and sends you cards back that other swappers have made using that same image. It's so neat seeing how everyone else used/colored the image.
April had also sent a roll of decorative tape for us to use on our cards. I used mine under the button....


I used Melon Mambo card stock as my base. Then a strip of Chocolate Chip and a piece of dp from my Stack 6 (DCWV) paper stack.
I have a few copics now. Mostly flesh colors and browns. I love them. I'm just trying to get the shading right.
I can't wait to get cards back from this swap :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Until next time...
Blessings...
