Colored Pencil Christmas
Pull out those colored pencils for Christmas cards.
The weekend is almost here. It’s not like I have anything exciting planned, it’s just nice to know I don’t have to do anything unless I want to:) I’ve been trying my hand at other coloring mediums outside the Copic realm. I had to keep reminding myself…you have to start somewhere so the beginning it is! I’ve had colored pencils for a couple of years, but really only used them as a complement to alcohol based markers. So these cards are my first go round with a full colored pencil image.
Dang do I have a lot of work to do to improve my coloring, but oh well, it’s all still fun. Definitely have to work on blending the night skies and choosing proper colors. This stamp is from a Power Poppy set called O Holy Night
I really had to fight the urge to pull out my Copics and just get back to something familiar and comfortable. Can’t say I’m in love with the coloring especially the flower but I did have a good time playing around with the different color of greens in the leaves and seeing how layering of the pencils changed the overall color. This stamp is also from a set from Power Poppy called Heaven and Nature Sing.
That’s it for me today. I hope everyone has a fantabulous weekend.
