I stamped in Stazon Jet Black, then colored in with pastel pencils - the technique is similar to the Prismacolor Pencils/odorless mineral spirits in that you color and blend with blending stumps...except these pencils don't require a blending medium. They're basically chalk in a pencil form. I masked the mouse and added in some tufts of grass (Biblical Impressions) and a ladybug (StraightForward Stamps). I used my "Scrap Strip" technique to fill in the background......I have my paper scraps in page protectors by color, and I kept seeing all these great reds together. Love the effect, sort of quilty. Handwriting is mine on the tag.
Here's a tutorial on my blog for the scrap technique: http://mamadinis.blogspot.com/2006/1...-tutorial.html

First off, I love the scrap technique, one of my favorites to do for the recycle cards for Keiki, sure makes the card stock live longer from those weird contest cards we get!
The image is just adorable you did a fabulous job on coloring it, thanks for sharing! Perfect example for the large layout panel.
