I Loved This Challenge!!!

Howdy!!!  So nice to see you again :D  I've just finished dinner and I'm kicking back in my office chair while I type this.  I was just thinking about my silly puppy dog.  He was lounging on the sofa with my hubby while I prepared dinner.  He probably was watching TV... As soon as I said, "Dinner's ready!" my hubby said that he (Sammy) got all excited and wanted to get down so he could come to dinner!  Do you think that your pet knows what you say?  I'm sure they understand more than they let on - you know, selective hearing LOL!  Oh, Sammy is sooooo spoiled!  Why do we let them take over the household?  What is it that we fall head over heels in love and let them do things that we'd NEVER let our (human) children do?  hee hee...  Just a few thoughts...

OK... I'm gonna be totally honest with you (not that I haven't been!)... I was so not looking forward to coloring this image.  It just looks intimidating!  I don't have a ton of experience coloring animals and I didn't really know how to begin.  With that said, I am pleased with the results!  Do you also shy away from images that you're not sure how to color?  Really... this wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.  Once I decided that the sun would be shining on the deer's face, the rest just kinda fell into place.  I KNOW that I still need to work on perfecting my coloring - I hope that I never stop learning!

So this is Forest Fairy by Victoria Case for SCACD.  She's one of the 'From the Vault' stamps at SCACD!

I used a ton of copic colors - some which surprised me lol!  Deer: E59 E57 E55 E53 E51 E50 YR24 YR23 YR21 Y21 R20; Greens: G40 G85 G94; Hair: E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Eyes/Flower: BG05 BG02 BG000.  Sparkly wings?  Stardust Stickles of course!
 
 Look Mom, no flowers!!!  Or  p i n k  hee hee...


 A little bit of decorating inside... I usually don't have time!  
AND... you know that I gotta use my paper pens!!!  This time it's Moss Green :)

This last shot is just so you can see how Diamond Glaze makes the eyes 'pop' - love this stuff!

New SCACD Product Alert!

I'm off to a meeting now... then home to color up more images - yipppppeeeeeee!!!

See you soon my friends

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~
