Hi, There!

A real short work week for me  as I had a few days off!  I managed to get a little creative juices flowing over the long weekend.  My hubby bought two sets of colored pencils (well, the truth be known - I bought them and told him this was my Mother's Day gift from him )  Love those kinds of gifts - don't you?  LOL

I wanted to try them out and found out real quickly that although they are as bright and bold as they say they are, they will never replace my Copic Markers.  But still not too shabby for the first attempt at the shading and I had to change my paper to something with more fiber to it.  I had trouble blending on the paper I use for the markers.  I would imagine the craft paper will work well too - when I find more time;)  The digital image is called A Little Birdie by Mo Manning.  Spectrum Noir Blendable pencils both primary and essential sets used.

Till next time, take care and thanks for visiting, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
