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 job...it 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.
