Here is my card, using a #2 pencil to color the mouse. My Dad was on vacatin for a week with two of his brothers and we missed him a lot. I made this card w/a message and PS's "you are loved" inside.
Hob Lob white base, inked edges with Ranger di wild honey. Next layer is pre-emb DCWV yellow, inked edges w/vintage photo. Printed layer is a scrap from an old but loved Sizzix paper pad. Stamped panel is PTI vintage cream. Stamped image ? in Memories alpine brown. Colored all w/Prism watercolor pencils except the little mouse. I tried to color him like I used to color big areas in my pencil drawings. I color straight lines up and down, then w/light handed circles. With a very lightly moistened finger, in circle motion, blended the pencil. Lastly, darkened image linework including tail, w/pencil. Sky "streaked" w/Prism lgt gray pencil, erased to leave faint lines, then inked w/Ranger di tumbled glass. IRL lines look faintly like emb resist technique. Unfortunately, the lines did not show on photo. Drats.
THANKS for looking! Have a happy! :)
