How far I’ve come

Today’s card is a personal landmark for me of how far I’ve come in my colouring capabilities since I started 6 months ago. I’m not celebrating the technical skills I’ve learnt, but rather the confidence I now have when I hold a pencil in my hand. The confidence to let myself go and be freer in the way I colour.

I’m obviously still not happy with my lack of ability to colour a leaf so it bends the way I want it to, and not be swaying all over the place at the same time! I still have more shading classes to take, but overall I’m quite proud of the way I coloured this gorgeous stamp from Clearly Besotted with my Prismacolor pencils. I had around 5 different colour pencils in my hand at the same time, as I flicked them through each petal!

Once finished, around 2h later, I stamped the sentiment from Stamplorations with Versafine black ink, cut my panel with Sue Wilson’s rectangle stitched dies and carded up my drawing on yellow card stock and finally a white card base.

I chose this sentiment for Kathy Racoosin at The Daily Marker, to say a HUGE Thank You to her, as her 30 Day Colouring Challenge was what incited me to learn how to colour with a pencil/brush in my hand. Before that, I thought I couldn’t colour to save my life, and now its become a passion! So I will be eternally grateful to her for hosting this challenge. The last challenge just ended and I can’t wait for the next one already, which will probably in January.

Well I hope you liked the card and I look forward to hearing what you think cause all your comments really make my day!
