Finally!

I was feeling cranky, and not only because of the extreme outdoor heat. It was because I hadn't colored anything in so long I couldn't remember. Last night, I turned on the re-runs of "John From Cincinnati" and got out my pencils and went for it.
This image is from Thanh. She sent me a bunch of animal images like this. Isn't it just so cool? It's a big stamp - about 4x5-ish. I didn't measure it, but the finished card size is A2. The background paper is some woven stuff. I don't know what it's called. I got it at Cat's a long, long time ago.
Not much else to say about this card, but that I used a lot of colors on it. Looking at it, I think now it's a bit too yellow in the photo. It's not that yellow in real life. I may tone it down a bit or I may not. The next one I color just won't be this yellow. It felt good to zone out and color. I miss that so much.

Another stunning piece of work Deb. It looks perfect to me, even when I enlarged it!

We have the pool and it's not even refreshing right now. Hang in there and stay inside!
