Wednesday Coloring

Happy Wednesday!

For several weeks now I have been wanting to give my hand at coloring some stamped images.  I have not attempted coloring in quite a long time now, but I bought some really cute stamps at the end of the Halloween season last year and I wanted to try my hand again at coloring.  I was a bit nervous because it had been such a long time since I colored.  I used to color all the time but for some reason I just moved away from them.  So my first attempt was with my copics and I have to say I failed miserably!!  I used the correct paper, ink etc but it was just a big mess.  My little one even said to me "mom that is ugly!"  So I then moved on to my prismacolor pencils and some gamsol.  Whenever I need something quick I always head toward my pencils. 

So this is what I made.  I used my Penny Black stamps and colored them with my pencils.  I think the little Dracula turned out so cute and I love his little bat friend! I then added some Halloween twine from The Stringery and called it a day!   I had a lot of fun and may try my hand at coloring again sometime soon. LOL!!  I

supplies
cardstock- bazzill, neenah solar white
paper- bella blvd
stamps- penny black
ink- memento
pencils- prismacolor
gamsol
twine- The Stringery!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new layout.  I really have been using up my scraps and I have another one that I went hog wild on my pattern paper LOL!!  See you then!
Have a wonderful and crafty day!

This is adorable!! You did a great job with coloring. I know what you mean about coloring with Copics, it looks really hard to me.

That little guy is too cute and you did a wonderful job coloring him! I am terrified of Copics and coloring in general. It's a huge step outside of my comfort zone. I love the background paper you chose and the twine.

Very adorable. I haven't tried using pencils, I am not having such good luck with my spectrum noirs.

Your card is so cute :)
I'm sorry but I had to laugh at what your son said, lol. Even though I am sure it wasn't that bad.
I have never coloured with the coloured pencils and gamsol.
