Stamp Scape and Pencil coloring

Hi Ya! Welcome and thanks for popping by today. This is another scheduled post...so here goes:


- Stamp Scape image colored with Colorsoft pencils on matte paper. This was a small bit of cardstock that folded to make a 3.5x3.5 square card. Birds drawn with a Copic black multiliner pen, and white gel pen for highlights on trees and rocks.

- card base covered with some Paper Studio DP with center die cut using a square S/B die. The first opening frame didn't look 'just right', so using 2 sizes of the square S/Binders, die cut another frame. Bottom portion of the frame is covering up the reflections & ripples I attempted in the water, but also  hides the ragged edges of the picture on the sides.

A sentiment will be added at a later date.

Been a while since I tried using pencils. Sometimes I get very discouraged trying to blend with pencils! But I try again at another time after I've seen something on a blog that was done with pencils and looks so great. I know it takes practice...

Have a great afternoon, and thanks for your visit. We're still working on the basement reorg project. Hugs

This is a lovely little scene and your colouring looks great. I like pencil colouring but it does take a bit longer to achieve a good result.I love your backing paper too.
