Eggstra Special

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.

My card is entering the following:
Deep Ocean Challenge - Easter/Spring
Die-Cutting Divas - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps - Holiday
The Crafter's Cafe - Easter
Crafting by Design - Anything Goes
