Mo's Digital Pencil Blog Hop

Hi there, we have a great theme for this month's blog hop  with Mo's Dream Team - Teens, as chosen by our wonderful Kaly which is also where you should start to hop from.  If you're already hopping then hopefully you arrived here from the amazing Gretha's blog, who will have had an awesome make to show you, I know!
I used the fabulous Dare as my image of choice for this theme - just perfect for all those teens who are just too cool for school, don't you think!  I coloured him with my Promarkers and had some papers in mind to use but then I decided to use this Impression Obsession wall background stamp and it went on from there!
The window arch was cut with a Poppy Stamp Small Gothic Window die which I layered up a few times to give a 3-D feel.  I cut this out of some packaging card, and it's just right for that stone effect.  The scene through the window is another Impression Obsession Cover the Page stamp, with gorgeous birch trees in relief.
The cogs are a mix of chipboard and card and all have been given the Frantage treatment for the metal effect with a Tim Holtz dial hand in the middle of the main one.
The crown and wings are cut from a Spellbinders Heraldic Frame set as is the shield on the wall - it's stamped with lion which I then frantaged but it looks a bit blobby - can you make out it's a lion?  
The pennant banner and the sentiment banner are both Tim Holtz dies, and the sentiment is from a Dovecraft set called, Wordsmiths ( I think!). As you can see I used lots of various colours of Frantage for that aged/shabby regal effect/
You should now be hopping over to the wonderful blog of Debby Y who will have a fab creation to share with you.  
Enjoy the rest of the hop and don't forget to leave comments on each of the DTs' posts as  there are two $5 vouchers  hidden somewhere to spend in Mo's Digital Pencil!
The full order of this month's hop is shown below.

Kaly, Mina, Jak, Gretha, Julie (me!), Debby.Y, Heidy, Alice, Vili, Alexandra, Anneke, Danielle
