Horse Head


Hi All!  I'm presently taking Marie Browning's class, Colored Pencil Techniques, at My Creative Classroom.  Here's my try for Lesson One -- Blending Color.  Coloring was done with Prismacolor pencils then blended with gamsol.  The Horse Head image is by "priscillastyles".

I will be entering this card in the following challenges
Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #149 -- Make A CAS (clean and simple) card
Joanna Sheen Challenge -- Animal Crackers  --Creations with animals on them
Crafty Catz Challenge #142 -- Monochromatic

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great week and stay cool!
