Firstly, I must apologise to regular viewers for the excessive use of Mo Manning digis, I admit to being deeply obsessed with her Christmas images, and have coloured them in in virtually every colour combination known to man/woman.
It occurred to me yesterday that although I have seen it numerous times in blogland, I have never attempted colouring in an image printed/stamped onto brown Kraft card. So in an effort to make my growing pile of Mo Manning Christmas cards look slightly different from each other, I gung-ho-flung myself into printing and then colouring on, let's face it, dull and drab card.
I tried with pencils first and got fairly good coverage, but not sure if it's me not blending the pencils properly or if that's just the way it is, but I found the black lines of the image went a bit "foggy".
On a side note, since my Saturday Sketch palaver the other day, I have now fully embraced the joy of triangulation - it uses less of my hoarded backing papers, and I don't need to measure anything! Just cut of a couple of corners from complimentary papers, stick them on a piece of plain cardstock and it's good to go! I have absolutely no doubt that "Mo Manning and the Triangles" will feature heavily from now until Christmas. Sorry!
