#949 – Picnic with Friends

PE: Bastel-Traum Bronze award winner!

Bastel Traum - Bronze Award

Hello and welcome to a new challenge up at Tic Tac Toe! This time, the board is created by Felicita for us, and this it it –

I created this after choosing the first column – Friendship-Any Color-Sentiment

I wanted to work with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils again. I used Fabriano Accademia Disegno Drawing paper. I first stamped the critters from Purple Onion Designs using a light grey ink, and colored them. I must admit, I am quite happy with the coloring this time, and I owe it all to Sandy Allnock’s you tube videos – I learnt so much from her!

Well, I can’t really explain the coloring process better than Sandy does! Basically, it involves

  • coloring the first layer lightly,
  • coloring in layers, going lighter to darker layer,
  • and then finishing it off with the lighter layer again, blending the darker layers together with covering as much area as possible, considering the paper’s tooth.

Once done, I trimmed this panel, and added the sentiment from My Favorite Things Kind Thanks stamp set, using VersaFine Onyx black pigment ink. I then adhered this over a kraft card base.

And that’s my card! I’m joining the following challenges as well –

  1. What a cute little scene and your colouring is fantastic. I must make a point of watching her videos. I had a look and see that I am already subscribed. There is never enough time to do everything is there? thanks so much for your lovely comments recently xx

    • Frankly I don’t know how everyone else manages their time, either!! πŸ˜‚ But I have somehow managed to watch a lot of her videos and pick up some pointers which have really been helpful. 😊 Do have a watch when you are free! ❀️ And the comments – just returning the love, my friend! πŸ’•

  2. You have created a wonderful scene with those sweet little animals Ashwini!! I just love it! Your colouring is wonderful. Sandy does great videos and explains things well! You make me want to bring our my pencils again. Sadly I don’t use them as often as I should!! πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for sharing at Watercooler Wednesday Challenge! Stay safe! πŸ™‚
