Coloring Challenge

This weeks challenge over at If The Shoe Fits...Scrap It! is called Color Your World. They challenged us to use our favorite methods of coloring on our project. This is what I ended up with.

I found this cute little rocket in my stash of images that I received from swaps and friends (so I don't know it's name or who makes it). I colored him using colored pencils and blending with Gamsol. I love the soft effect that the Gamsol gives you. TO make the colors stand out even more I went over the lines with a Bic Marker to make the black outline darker. I added my own flames to give it a little more pizazz. I also used some Pearlescent Chalks from Pebbles Inc. to give him a little shine and those rosy cheeks! I stamped the letters in Close To My Hearts Goldrush ink using their Precious Alphabet stamp set. All the papers are also from Close to my heart out of the Animal Crackers collection. I really like the way this turned out and I think I'll be using this rocket again in the future!
