So this is what I did with Bronte and Louis...
It seems like I always gravitate towards yellow, blues and browns when I color images with little boys. I guess we all have color combos that we favor and these are some of mine. I colored Louis with Copics and then added a touch of dark brown Prismacolor to his hair. Bronte is also colored with Copics and shaded with Prismacolors. I was going to add more detail to Bronte and try to get his fur more detailed but I already had Louis done and I didn't want to mess up and have to start over so I'll practice the fur on other stamps before I put too much work into them. The grass and blue shading are Prismacolor\Gamsol.
Do you work with Prismacolors and Gamsol often? Here's something I learned in the last week or so...I noticed that sometimes when I go to blend with Gamsol I don't get a smooth, soft effect and couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. Then it dawned on me that I was adding the colored pencil, letting the image sit for a few hours or even over night and then going back to do the blending...the result...well, I assume that the wax base of the pencil dries up enough to make it less blendable. So now I make sure to blend whatever I add right away and it's been smooth blending ever since.
All the paper in this card is from my scrapbox so I'm not sure of the brands, but I think the textured cardstock is probably Bazzill and the yellow and blue spiral is from a stack I bought at Michael's about 7 years ago!! I printed the "Have fun!" Sentiment and then punched it and cut the yellow circle on my Cricut. The inside sentiment reads "Happy Birthday to a special little guy!". I added a little bit of ribbon and a few silver brads, did a little stitching and it was done.
Time for me to get supper going!
