Use or bin - Inktense colouring.

Good morning all.
I hope you are all well.
Thanks for all your comments yesterday on my card and fridge, i did use my hairdryer too but my goodness the ice was so thick.
Fingers crossed at the mo, it is working and no ice forming.................yet.
Anyhoo i am in work soon and i didn`t have time to make a card yesterday but i did manage to colour an image.
I am not sure what i think of the end result, what do you think?.
It is my 2nd proper attempt with Inktense pencils and i love how you can pick the colour up from the pencil nib to create fine strokes.
It is the skin i am unsure of and also my grass as it makes my fairy look like she has a dirty bottom :S
Honest opinions are welcome, i won`t be offended at all.


Thanks so much for looking.
Oh and my laddo had a great day at secondary school yesterday, he says the teachers were all nice & kind.:D
Lotsa Hugs
Nic.

I think the colouring us lovely and soft. I can see what you mean about fairy's bum, made me smile, maybe a different green

Lozzy T said...

Stunning Nic, looks perfect to me especially the mouse. How you have done the fur it looks so real and for the fairy's bottom it shows she's been playing..Hugs Lozzy xx
so pleased your son's happy with his new school, he's growing up, secondary school you saying oh no xx

Aunty Sue said...

No I like it very much use it

Janette said...

I agree about the fairy' bum...maybe add more colour there to see how that does, but overall Nic, it's a good job, always hard to get used to a new medium...

Glad Jack likes his School..xx

Hope the fridge behaves itself Nic!! I love your colouring, so different but very artsy feel to it.

A beautiful image and colouring Coops.I love the transparency in her wings and the white dots in her hair..gorgeous..and the mouse's hair looks awesome.Maybe the grass at the bottom could go thicker and darker..but that is only my opinion..cannot wait to see it on a card.

I think it's fabulous Coops! I love the way you can see the arm 'through' the wing and the effect is so pretty. Sorry, you made me howl with laughter at the fairies dirty bottom!! It is a beautiful piece of colouring and I'm super impressed. Hugs, Jayne x

Wendy said...

Absolutely beautiful colouring Nic, love the effect of these pencils....I have been thinking about buying a tin of these inktense pencils with my Christmas money, if I could manage to colour even half as good as you I would be happy.

Jackie said...

OMG don't bin it coops!!! It's gorgeous colouring and it's plain to see it's grass, not a dirty bottom :o)

Lynne in NI said...

Ha, her dirty bum is so funny now that you've pointed it out! I like the colour of your skin, but if you want to add a bit more pinkiness, you could try adding a very light touch of Carmine Pink over your Baked Earth - I saw that tip over at the LOTV blog :)

compared to my colouring I think it looks fabulous and love the wings
