Happens Every Year

Yep . . .every year, Terry Medaris comes out from Arizona to teach his colored pencil classes. . . and for at least a month after, all I want to do is color.

I use my pencils quite often . . . I just don't usually spend lots of time blending and shading and blending some more . . . but I have been over the last week or so. . .

See? Here's a card:
What I used:

Beehive stamp from Impression Obsession
PrismaColor Pencils - Sunburst Yellow, Terra Cotta, Yellow Ochre, Light Umber, Dark Brown, Limepeel, Kelp Green, Tuscan Red, White, and Dark Purple
Vintage Sepia VersaFine ink
Candleglow Medium and Classic Purple Cardstock by Prism
Gold Swirl Ribbon

After coloring the image, I used the Stardust pen to add some sparkle to the bee's wings and the . . . um . . . dots (?) on the beehive. I then applied a thin layer of Crystal Lacquer on the dots (?) for a bit of dimension.
Thanks for stopping by!
