Just because

Hi y'all! 

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 (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! :) 


  1. Popped over to tell you. Yep you did good sharing as this card looks fabulous with your coloring! Nice depth 😀

  2. My two cents here... I think the drama is nice. And heck yeah, it's all about practice isn't it? And fun. Maybe if you stamped the image again after coloring it would bring the outlines and strawberry seeds back to the forefront?!? Or black pen on the seeds.
