I was playing around with my new text stamp from Waltzing Mouse. The background looks so much better in real life. The green text is more visible and seems to tone down the yellow so that it matches the sun. The mermaid image was coloured with a mixture of copics and prismacolour pencils. I don't have a large collection of either especially a year ago so I was playing. I do love how it created a more realistic blend on her hair and softened the background. The colouring is not the best since I've improved a lot in that time. It's neat to see how I've gotten better with more practice.

It's very good to play with our supplies so we can get better at using them. One thing I love about the HYCCT challenges is I get to utilise a lot of sample stuff I've stamped and coloured over the past 12 months and it gets to be enjoyed by someone else in need of a lift. Arrghh...the dreaded yellow - it's a funny colour to photograph. Well done on your colouring of your image. :)
Thanks for participating in my HYCCT challenge, I really appreciate the effort, and so will many others who will be touched by your gift of cardmaking for this cause.
