Coloring with Inktense Pencils

I knew I had taken a break from card-making and posting, but I had no IDEA it's been over 2 weeks! 
Last post I said I was puttering, and I guess I continued in that mode. A few things have been going on, and well, life happens! 

One of my creative days involved a spurt of watching videos and coloring a bunch of images with Inktense pencils. My favorites were these adorable mice from MFT (Harvest Mice). I used an aqua brush to spread the color and added a few layers of color. While it's still not the medium I'm most comfortable with, I did get better with practice. 

I learned that keeping the aqua brush just barely damp worked best. The background areas of ground and sky were sponged with Distress Oxide Inks.

The sentiment is one of such nostalgia for me because it's from a song my Mom used to sing to us. If you do a search for it, it's good for a chuckle. Makes me feel really old, lol. But then Mom lived to be 96 and never thought she was old. So sing a chorus for her!

I hope I will get back into some stamping soon. Thanks for visiting today!
