Alright I am getting back onto my Easter card making. Before I started making the Easter cards, I had browsed various challenge blogs in search of a sketch to work on. I did start the card with the sketch in mind, but later on I simplified it to the extent that the original sketch was no longer recognizable. LOL. Time is really limited as Easter is approaching but I still haven't finished my cards! I cheated by making simpler cards.
This time, again, I used Prismacolor pencils to color the images. I also used gamsol to blend the colors. That gamsol does make a huge difference! Even though I am not seeking to color images with a realistic look with shades and such, gamsol helps blending the pigments evenly as if I had colored them with markers. I can see how helpful gamsol could be if I use different tones of colors on a single image. Compared to markers, color pencils could be frustrating because it could take a long time to color to make it a solid image.
