Finally a new card!

DH has been keeping me busy! I was ahead on the birthday cards, and now I am behind! This one is for a grandson who loves and rides motorcycles. Graphically it is very different from anything I have ever colored. It took me several sessions and thankfully it is digital so I could print more than one image at a time. I can't tell you how many partly colored images I have, but I am keeping them as reference so I can see what works and what doesn't. This is the one and only completely colored image. I hope that the man who drew him wouldn't cringe at my attempt to color this. KennyKdownloads.com. This man can really draw! I have been devouring all the coloring youtubes, including fashion design. I will be making some cards rather quickly as the images are colored. I have 3 birthday cards to get sent before the end of March, so you just might be able to see how far I have come. I am really pleased with this one. It was the most difficult image I had done at the time. One of the hardest parts was figuring out what things were! So enough gab, and here's the photos I took. Hope you enjoy this real change of pace! That glittery strip is Christmas ribbon! Hugs to you all and thanks for hanging in there with me! Hugs, Barb F

Wonderful coloring- do you color first and then match the paper, or visa versa? Love the masculine card with a little touch of shimmer!
