PD Winnie jumping for joy

It is time for another Polkadoodles card! I have coloured up Winnie Jumping for Joy with my Prismacolor pencils. This is my first attempt to colour skin and hair with pencils so it was a fun challenge. I’m glad I decided to give the pencils a go for this image. The background paper is from the Scrumptious Sugar collection and I used their Celebrate die in a matching colour as well.

Here is another photo of the card

Pencil colouring is fun! My next pencil colouring will actually be my 10th and yesterday it was a month since I first tried coloured pencils. Not many of them have made it onto cards though, only 3 of them, of which one of them have made it onto the blog so far. I find it quite different to make cards with craft as the base colour instead of white, but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it soon!

This time I’ve made a Christmas card using a penguin with candy cane by Whimsy Stamps, it’s in the Crissy Armstrong collection. Isn’t he adorable? As I wrote in the first paragraph, I haven’t made many cards using my pencil colourings, so for this one I took a page out of Elin‘s book. She’s the only one I know who makes clusters of paper scraps like this and I like it, so I thought I’d try it myself. I think it works well for my card!

I use prisma color premier pencils.
