Dreams Are Forever

I colored these 3 babies with my Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils. I used only the Essentials set for this project, the paper stumps and blending solution; as well as the King For A Day stamp set and Angelica and Adam 6x6 girl paper pad. 

I've added a few photos of my quick and messy process. When blended with the odorless mineral spirits, you don't have to be tidy or perfect, which is great for me with the kids home for the summer. 

My supplies: stamped images from Sheena Douglass A Little Bit Sketchy King for a Day set, Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils-Essentials, Spectrum Noir Blending Stumps, Spectrum Noir Blending Solution

I colored the branch with 089 and 091.

I added color to the bird bodies with 112, 117 & 119.

I colored feet, beaks and eye rings with 015 and 022.

I added color to heads and chests with 071 and 067.

I used 001 and 067 to add some sky around the trio.

Finally, I added 120 to the deepest shadows.

I blended my coloring with paper stumps and blending solution. 

To finish off the card, I did some simple die-cutting and added some shimmer to the background and the patterned paper
