Happy Saturday, hope you're enjoying the weekend?! :)
I'm swinging in to share a 'just for fun' card with you. No challenge or anything, though if I'm being completely honest I wasn't even going to share this card. Why, you may ask?...Well, I've been trying to 'enhance' my colored pencils skills and that led me to watching some videos and reading a few little quick tips and tricks. Then after had me to thinking 'I can do that' and 'looks pretty easy'....Ha! If I only knew...lol (Not so easy! lol) But practice makes perfect, right?!...Or close to perfect?...All I know is I did enjoy making this card (and that's what counts, right?!), I just wasn't sure about it afterwards. But, came to the conclusion I still wanted to share because what is perfect? ;)
I was trying to give the strawberries more depth/realism by using a black colored pencil along with my reds/deeper pinks. I normally always use a white colored pencils for highlights and whatnot but using a black colored pencil is always a challenge for me. I have used it slightly before but after seeing videos/examples thought I should be more generous when using it, not to be afraid of 'too much'. So that's what I did...but, I started second guessing that in fact I did use too much?...I'm still not sure, though I don't thinks things look horrible, so that's good. lol You tell me...what do you think, I'd love to know?! :)
Well, that's all for me.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
See you soon! :)
