Great Day to Fish

Are you ready for another coloring challenge at Make it Colourful? This week we’re challenging you to color with depths and shadows, to make something look 3D. For my project I went overboard, of course, and colored a full scene. I went minimal with the embellishments and made this card with father-themed in mind.

I colored the images with Prismacolor Pencils, this time blending with the pencils only. I had to apply a lot of pressure to keep the colors smooth so I might be back to a paper stump with oil for the next round. However, I am happy with the bright effect as if the sun is just rising on a perfect summer day.

Did you know? On 12 February 1988, the U.S. Navy cruiser USS Yorktown, while exercising the “right of innocent passage” through Soviet territorial waters, was intentionally rammed by the Soviet frigate Bezzavetniy (collision pictured) with the intention of pushing the Yorktown into international waters. This action has been called “the last incident of the Cold War”.

  1. Wow! I don't think I've seen any cuter stamps. They are adorable. And your coloring is beautiful. I just bought a set of Prismacolor pencils and haven't had time to actually color a stamped image yet. If my coloring turns out just a fraction as good as yours I think I'll be happy! LOL!!


  2. How beautiful! I love your bright, dynamic colors and what a fabulous background! Thanks so much for joining us for this week's Critter Sketch Challenge and we hope you will come back and play again next week!Hugs,MarshaCSCB-DT
