A New Love ♥

Two weekends ago, Carolyn and I attended an amazing class where we learned how to color images with Prismacolor Colored Pencils. Wow, wow, wow! This is another amazing medium to use when working with stamped images and it produces such a beautiful end result.

This is an image that we worked on in the class.

Isn't he adorable? Paula Williamson taught the class and she has tonnes of talent. We were given 4 images to work on, but most of us only managed to complete one. With this one image though, we learned all sorts of techniques - like adding spots, how to do grass, shading, shadowing, and blending.

Of course, since then, all I want to do is play with my pencils! So I have managed to do a couple of other cards. I grabbed both of these stamps from our store when our new Stamping Bella shipment arrived last week.

This one is called Ketto's Dolly (adorable!) and I had so much fun coloring her.

Then this past weekend I colored Daisybella - my very first actual 'bella' image - if you can believe it! When I finished working on the image, I saw the perfect floral paper to go with it. It is from the Little Chick line by Three Bugs in a Rug.

I love her little t-shirt and faded jeans. I hope these card brings a smile to someone's face when (if!) I give them away.

Have a blessed day!
