Leisure Arts Colored Pencils and my Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils and got to work!
I started out by coloring that adorable little mouse and coffee/teacup with the watercolor pencils. After watercoloring, I ran over the image with the colored pencils to give more dimension to some areas. I set that aside and started coloring the cheese...Oh fun!
Isn't she cute?! After coloring her up, I set her aside and marked up the pencil lines with my Staedtler .01 pigment pen and started coloring the cheese with the colored pencils. After I was satisfied with the color, I fussy cut the cheese and mounted it onto a white card panel. I used my Misti to position the sentiment perfectly on the panel then gave it two presses of ink. After that, I just popped the mouse/cup image up onto the cheesy panel with some foam squares. NO RIBBON. GASP!
Such a fun, fun set! I loved working with this set so much! I can't wait to play with the mouse on the upside down cup next!
