Hey everyone! We are still celebrating release week over at Whimsy Stamps! Today I coloured up an image from the Rub-a-dub-dub set!

Jessie - Rub a dub dub .jpg

I stamped the little duck in a tub out onto some Kraft paper and coloured it up with my Polychromos Coloured Pencils, except for white I used my Luminance white.

Polychromos used:
Tub – Luminance white, Warm Grey IV, Warm Gret II
Duck – Dark Chrom Yellow, Dark Cadmium Yellow, Light Cadmium Yellow
Beak – Orange Glaze, Cadmium Orange
Bubbles – Cobalt Blue-Greenish, Light Cobalt Turquois, Luminance White

I used up some of my spotted paper from my shash, a little yellow ribbon. I used just the Rub-a-dub-dub part of the sentiment from the same set and a couple pink Enamel dots from the Summer Breeze Enamel dots.

Wee Stamps Mr Frosty 1.jpg

I coloured him up with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils. Unfortunately I did it while on a trip to Saskatoon and didn’t record the colours that were used. The paper I used was Fabriano Artistico 140lbs Hotpress Watercolour paper.

I used some of the paper from my recent Haul from Blue Fern Studio, the fence die is from La La Land crafts and the corner die is from LDRS Creative. I added a little twine around the image to finish off the front of this card.
