Since I have another post planned for tomorrow (you definitely don't want to miss it **giveaway alert** so be sure to follow my blog), I'm moving up my regularly scheduled "Watercolor Wednesday" post to today! Do you ever create a card or color an image and think holy crap, I did that?! Well, this card and image for me was one of those moments! I can't believe I'm just now sharing on my blog. Sometimes because I get so excited and I share on instagram or Facebook right away, I totally space actually blogging about it! I actually colored this image a month ago!
This card features so many of my favorite things - Bo Bunny Altitude paper, Saturated Canary digital image, Inktense pencils and Wink of Stella glitter pen!!! Oh my! Even my favorite colors purple and teal!
While I've been coloring with Derwent Inktense pencils for a couple years, I did take the watercolor class at Kit & Clowder that has definitely taken my coloring to the next level! Based on my experience and just the knowledge obtained I highly recommend it. Even though I have yet to tackle light sources as you can tell in my coloring!! haha
I also created a little video highlighting bits of my coloring on this image. I hope you enjoy it! The image probably took me about an hour to color start to finish (including the background) but I condensed it down to under 10 minutes! ;) I wanted to highlight the different techniques I used throughout without boring you with the entire image coloring - I would love your feedback on if you found it helpful or enjoyable as I decide on new videos to create!
