WOYWW #412 {loot & coloring}

Happy Desk Peeking day! If you'd like to play along the link up starts here at Miss Julia's blog.

 so, a while back I caved on a studio calico order and those stamps arrived in the mail on monday.

 Also on monday came a package from Simon Says stamp...

 So, on monday evening after those stamps were dutifully photographed for your viewing pleasure I did open the shut up and color set and stamp off some of those on scraps and left them to dry. so this was shot tuesday.

around the corner on the other side I have been coloring some ellen hutson mondo peonies with polychromos pencils. I stamped it all with some avery elle pixie ink and the leaf is ( I forgot it's ink name off hand but, I was trying for a no line coloring effect) and so, its hard because, I finally figured out what I think I am doing to sabotage my self and it is I spin the papers when I color. I think it would be easiest to say ok this will be the top on your finished project and so the shadows go here and here. and that's not really how I operate with blooms ( like this where they are viewed from above) I tend to cut them out with scissors and place them on card fronts around the sentiments or other elements. so, the card in the back was the first one of these and after it was attached to the card base I had this whole, the shadows do not make total sense thought about it. oh and the starting to unfold buds are even harder with the no line thing for me, they just look like pink blobs and I may add more definition to the cracks but, the pale pink peonies in my yard are barley pink (only in the centers) the petals fade to white as they open so, I was trying for something more real looking.

also from tuesday ( my desk at work) my son is home on leave so... he stopped by my office to ( use the copy machine lol) I will be driving all day for work today so, it may be late before I start making the rounds. Thanks for stopping by!
