Warm Heart


Today was rather cold and a little snowman dust was swirling around in the air on my way home from work. It gave me the inspiration I needed for my card submission to Karen's(Love Ink) card challenge. Tonight I thought I would try to color an image using Prismacolor pencils and baby oil. Overall I'm happy with the card, but I think I should have given this little monkey more of a chocolate chip color rather than a cocoa color. The image was rather small too so maybe a bigger image next time to show more blending. The baby oil works wonderfully and it just takes a very small amount. Enjoy.

Awesome card, Mary!
I have a small bottle of baby oil in my supplies - it's been there awhile. I remember thinking, "What is this for?" Now I know! LOL! I'll have to give it a try since you had such wonderful results!
