For my final Growing In Unity week, I am sharing a full face image colored with pencils. This Unity kit is called Only Imagine. Isn't she adorable? Just look at those eyes! Unity has many 'Girl" images to choose from, and from various artists. You will not be disappointed!!
Like my other projects, she is inked with black MFT hybrid ink onto Crumb Cake card. Starting with light and moving to dark shading. And I don't think I've mentioned in my other posts this week, but when I color with these pencils, I use small circular motions, and a very light hand. The next layer is the same, but pressing down a little harder on the pencil. And this is repeated until I'm happy. Sometimes I will color over a section 4 or 5 times, but I like how you can control the amount of color. My alcohol marker coloring isn't always this easy :)
I dressed up her panel by adding a pretty die cut frame from Bo Bunny, and retired patterned paper from Stampin Up. The background panel was made by crumpling up a piece of crumb cake card, and lightly sponging over it with brown ink and gluing it down flat to a black card base. And I don't always add a sentiment to the front of cards, but the inside will always have one. In some cases, you just don't need one on the front :)
Thank you for visiting me this week, I have enjoyed sharing with you all. Be sure to visit the other GIU Gal Sandra, and see what she has shared!
