For those who have been part of the Little Miss Muffet Stamps FaceBook group, know that there was a little competition put forth by Zoe (from Make it Crafty). She challenged me (and everyone else) to color up Jr. Hatter Lilith using colored pencils. For some, I’m sure that would be an easy task, but me, I have such a hard time with pencils that it truly was a challenge! AND this is why Zoe picked it too! LOL
The first thing I did was start by merging some images as I also wanted to include a background from Make it Crafty. So on this project I’ve used Jr. Hatter Lilith and the Birds on a Wire Metal Die from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. The mushrooms and clouds are from the Whimsical Digi Elements from Make it Crafty.
The coloring was interesting and I received a lot of help in the LMMS FB group too. I was worried about all the specks of white that couldn’t be filled in and in the end, we decided that it was my paper that was causing the problem. I tried everything from sharp pencils (which helped), circular coloring (also helped) and some type of blending solution (which partially helped only in some ares). Of course, the smoother the surface was the better too but with the paper I had it didn’t seem to matter what I was coloring on.
Anyway, this is the final result! You can check out the LMMS FB group for more samples as there has been a lot of people participating and even a few more yet to come!! They’re all fantastic and so inspiring!
