Monday has arrived. Back to the normal grind. I have been working on my simple pencil idea. It turns out not to be so simple after all. Oh maybe it would be if I had an ounce of talent in this department. It is clear I do not. I think I will need to enlist some help via a class or two to get me started. Otherwise I will just learn some very bad habits. That I will in turn spend lots of money and time to unlearn! This is not going to come to me naturally.
With that said here is the card I made this week. It is a beautiful stamp my Penny Black. I just love her stamps. Her images are lovely and easy to color. Well easier than some I've tried. I think because she has some built in texture to her animals. The texture makes it easier to make the colors look blended.
I have not given up. I have expensive pencils so therefore I will continue on!! I hope that I have not spend a lot of money on pencils to only color in flowers! I plan to check Joann's and Michael's today to see if they offer any classes on Color Pencil shading.
