Golfer card

I got this stamp from a sidewalk sale at one of the local stamp stores. It's so cute! Yes, I bought it because it looked fun to color. Of course, I did.

The stamp is by Stamps Happen, Inc. and it's called Birdie.

I colored this with Prismacolor pencils. I'm ok with most of this image with the only part I don't like is the sky. I initially colored it with a lighter blue and then decided it needed to be darker. Instead of coloring hard, I left my coloring light-handed and it came out like this. Yuck. Inconsistent areas and I don't like the see-through areas.

Does anyone care what colors I used? Do you want me to list them or don't you care? I'm thinking of doing a tutorial on coloring an image. It would be a video tutorial. I'm due to make some more tutorials anyways.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comments.

Debbie your card made me giggle!!!! I love your sky even if you don'! I would love to watch a tutorial and yes, I care about the colors you use and your decision making process when it comes to choosing them. I have a huge set of prismas that need some love ;) Take care!!!! Happy belated Thanksgiving!

I think it's really funny and that the coloring is wonderful.

I figured you used your favorite limepeel, but the other colors???

Now this stamp was a great find! I love your golfer's plus fours and vest! LOL. That is what Paul wants me to get for him. Can you imagine him in plus fours? LOL

I love seeing your pencil work. You ARE the best (but I agree that this sky isn't one of your best.)

Do the tutorial video. You've taught me so much.

Me! Over here! I care what colors you used! I only got a 48 pack of pencils so I have to be selective on what I choose.
I'd love a tutorial too! Thanks for the continuous inspiration...8)
