I love participating in the Kit and Clowder online pencil class. The January 2018 class is using this beautifully drawn image from Ching Chou Kuik called ‘Sweet Companion’. Alyce’s classes come with a full color instruction booklet and full video tutorials to guide you through coloring up the image. You learn so many techniques like: folds, skin tones, hair, fur, and so much more. If you haven’t checked our the website, its linked above, just tell Alyce I sent you.
Below is my finished card. I am just in awe at how it has turned out. She is such a great instructor. Just give yourself a little time each day coloring and you’ll turn out beautiful cards as well. Be sure to check the site out. By the way, not only does she instruct with pencils, but markers and watercolor.
To my card – after my Sweet Companion image was fully colored in, I added foam backing to the image which was cut with a My Favorite Things STAX rectangle. I then mounted the Sweet Companion image on red cardstock. My sentiment “You warm my heart” is from the My Favorite Things stamp set called Perk Up. It is embossed on vellum with bronze powder. I added some flat pewter accent decors from Hero Arts.
I’ll be submitting this to the Simon Says Stamp, Wednesday Challenge – Anything Goes.
