Leaf Boat Note

Happy Tuesday Everyone! 

Did I mention that I received a bunch of new stamps?  {insert giddy smile} I was just beside myself to get them.  I've been looking at Stampavie Stamps for a while now and their whimsical style just finally got to me.  So here's a first attempt with a really cute one, this mice couple in a leaf boat.  I think it's just darling. 

I hadn't used my Prismacolor pencils for a while and I really wanted to create a softer feel for this image, so pencils are always a great choice.  I know the picture is a little bit soft too, but if I contrast it anymore in the editing program, the coloring really loses its true feel. 

I have to say that Flourishes really has fantastic paper for both Copics and for Prismacolor pencils, it's a dual kind of paper that colors up so beautifully.  I colored the pair with colors that are actually really rare for me.  These are more cool jewel tones, and I'm more of a warm color girl, but I love how it came out in these colors!  Who knew?!

And the Eskimo Kisses paper is fantastic for them I think too.  I used last weeks SCS Sketch flipped. 

So sweet!  Thanks for stopping by!
