My card today features Cherry Pip from Lili of the Valley. I think she's lighter and more whimsical but don't really know about her sense of humor. This is another practice with my pencils. When my husband asked how I managed to find paper that perfectly matched my coloring, I told him I was just that talented. But really, I found the paper first and set it next to my image so I could match my colors to it. I'm just starting to get the hang of shadows with pencils but I'm still struggling with the hair, especially hair that has lots of open space. I'm learning how to color on the sides of my points instead of on the points themselves. Every image I color makes me more comfortable with the pencils. Next up is to add pencils to my copic coloring.
