Colored Fish Card

Hi There!

I colored again today! Yay, me! I completely cased this card by Sandy Allnock. Man, is she a great colorist. I probably would never have wanted this stamp set if not for her card. I was mesmerized as I watched her You Tube tutorial on how she colored the Avery Elle Fish. I did my best to follow what she did and recommended. 
Overall, I think it came out pretty well for a first time effort of trying to get these highlights. She said she barely put the pencil on the paper with any pressure. I kept trying to do the same thing. Her coloring looked darker than mine, though. If I kept practicing, I might get better at it. I'm not as happy with my background. My bubbles looked pretty bad, so I covered them with Stickles. Sparkles solve a lot of issues. :)

Anyway, I adore these fish in fun colors. They look pretty silly and the sentiment does it's makes me smile. :)

I also started a new page in The Secret Garden coloring book. Actually, it's the first page I have even colored in the book.  I didn't get very far after I finished this card, though. I haven't taken a picture yet. Maybe tomorrow. 

Thanks ever so much for stopping by. I appreciate the visit.
Hope you are having a great weekend.

Great coloring, and I love the watery look of the background! I think it's perfect!

Oh I think you did a beautiful job coloring these fish!! The highlights are amazing and your blending and shadowing look super! And I agree those fish are just too cute! I can't see a thing wrong with the bubbles either! They look great, but I like the stickles on them. Hope you have a happy week ahead!! ((Hugs))

A++++ on your highlights, blending and shading, Jeanne! Once again, breath-taken away with your artistry! I think Sharon would have the same response if she knew how she inspired you! Outstanding! I need to start watching these videos you've found for us...much to learn and much to experiment with! "Sparkles solve a lot of issues" I LOVE that statement!! You're such a blessing! Happy Sunday!!
