House Mouse Challenge #43
I had so much fun coloring this image. Granted, I colored it almost precisely as the image on the stamp block, but still... I chose this image because of the weight I am losing every day. This is how I feel when I get on the doctor's scale and the number is lower than the last visit. Yippee!! When I decide to color an image, I usually choose the printed paper first and then match my pencils with the colors on the paper. I didn't do that this time since I kinda copied the colors on the stamp block. I got lucky when I started digging through my paper and found this paper called "Tres Jolie" from My Minds Eye. I love this paper and I was probably hoarding it for some reason that I've forgotten now. Here's a little close-up of the colored image. I used my Prismacolor pencils to color this. I've been using my Copics so much lately, that I've missed my pencils. Coloring House Mouse images makes me feel like I'm coloring an image in a coloring book. I used to LOVE to color and I loved my coloring books. My favorite gifts when I was little were coloring books (no duh) and a brand new box of Crayola 64's. Oh man, I loved the smell of those new crayons. So that's it for today. See you soon with another challenge: The Odd Bird Sketch Challenge. Try it yourself! That blog post will tell you where to post your cards for the challenge. Have fun!
