I got this darling little guy free from Whipper Snapper because I spent way too much money...again :) I knew he'd be perfect to make birthday cards for my mom and SIL, whose birthdays are on July 2 and 5. I showed this card to my DH and he said this is his favorite card that I've made, EVER. Wow!
I colored in the stamp with Prismas and gamsol...DH (who is better at Gamsol Magic than I am...only slightly jealous) suggests that you use a different color to shade...for instance, to shade the yellow stars, use orange or even some red; to shade in green, use some blue and maybe purple. My tip? Do the gamsol as you go rather than coloring in with the pencils and then going back to blend it all in at the end--I pulled a little red into my white stripes on the flag on one card by accident. I still love how they turned out!
