Monster Birthday

I’ve had a beautiful Sunday so far and hope you’ve been able to enjoy it as well.  Our day started with church together, a quite lunch and a lazy afternoon with coffee outside on the front verandah in the Spring sunshine.

Today I’ve finished a card I started yesterday using Inktense pencils for my colouring medium.  The image was stamped on to 100% cotton watercolour paper 11cm x 11cm with Versafine ink.

I used a couple of different methods to add the colour.  Parts I coloured directly with the pencil and others I picked the colour up with my wet brush and then applied.  The background is simply a wash of the green pencil – Ionian Green.

Below are the three colours I used for the main image which I hope come close to the challenge colours.  My base card is a digital sheet pattern in the colour Ice and measures 14cm x 14cm folded.

Here are the challenges and links I played along with!  I was a little late for sketch challenge at Retro Sketches (ooops!) but I made it in time for the Color Throwdown challenge!
