The challenge over at Mo's (excuse me...Bronte and Bella's) challenge site this week is "Hugs and Kisses". I chose the always adorable Sophie. She's just too stinkin' cute, dontcha think? I colored her and her dolly up with my Prismacolor colored pencils on Kraft cardstock, then fussy-cut her out and popped her off the Nestability frame. The rest of the card just sort of fell in place. That's how I create most of the time--on the fly. I let my creative muse run loose and lead me wherever she wants to.
Sometimes she leads me to scary places...but today, not so much. Today, she led me to a warm and fuzzy place.
Here's a detail shot of my coloring. I'm finally learning how to shade more realistically--this is especially challenging on fabric...but I keep plugging away at it.
