So this month’s awesome Brand Ambassador care package from Tombow was the Irojiten colored pencils. I am so excited to try these and learn its ways. 🙂
I recently purchased two stamps from Hobby Lobby and figured these were the perfect images to color. A young African American girl and a cutesy elephant. I love elephants so I had to give it a try.
I know you can only go so far with blending when you only have one pencil of each color [give or take] so I told myself do what you can.
I stamped the two images with Versafine onyx black ink and got started. Twenty – thirty minutes later I had these two images.
I actually like my little green elephant. 🙂
I know there’s LOTS of room for improvement and I have never claimed to be an artist, but I enjoyed coloring these two images. It took me back to being young and just enjoying the repetitive motions of coloring. No cares. No concerns. Just. color.
I decided to name my two images Jana and Caruso. No idea where I came up with those, but that’s what I named them. 🙂 I plan to use Jana on a Teacher Appreciation Day card for my older sister. Note: Yes I know TAD was earlier this week, but its never too late.
