Kit and Clowder March 2017 Pencil Class

Hi there!

I've done it again! For the fifth month in a row I've managed to put aside some ME time to colour the monthly (March) Pencil Class from Kit and Clowder.

The amazing Alyce Keegan has managed to create another stunning class, and has even arranged for us students to have digital stamps for the class, which are not available to others but her students. They are awesome stamps with birds and flowers.

Many of us have been waaay out of our comfort zone this time, but when I look in the Facebook album in the group I can honestly say that each and everyone has nailed this class. Well done, fellow students :-)!

I loooove those red berries and I really cannot understand that I coloured them. My pencils must have had a life of their own and must have taken over, I'm not sure I remember colouring them and it's only a few days ago, I did.

My biggest problem was the leaves, as there's so many colours in a relatively small space, but they turned out ok.

I only had the outline of the bird, so I myself had to draw in all the feathers with an ordinary lead pencil. That was not exactly easy as I'm not that kind of artist, and I might have had the image on an angle, when I did, because in my mind the feathers on the wing should have leaned a bit more to the right. But I'm ok with it as it is.

Due to my hands I took the easy way out and used some odourless alcohol to blend the background colours. I only used a little colour for the background as I wanted the bird and the branch and berries to pop out of the page. I think I managed that, don't you?

Please feel free to leave me a comment, if you like my project, and, if you want to see my cards/projects on a regular basis, please join my blog.

Be happy crafting!
