Oliver in black & white


Hello wonderful friends and happy Tuesday! (aka Day 2 of Spring Break!)
We are having a great time enjoying some lazy mornings and warmer days here in VA. Days off = more time for me to sneak into the craft room while the younger kiddos are being entertained by their older siblings. ;)
I'm really trying to focus on coloring lately, my older boys are outdoing me when it comes to anime drawing and shadows! I inked up Oliver from The Greeting Farm {Journey set} and colored him in N copics, then found a piece of denim paper to add to it. It was just enough color to anchor the image, but not too much to overpower it.
Here are some awesome challenge sites that I found for Oliver:

Bunny Zoe's Crafts: One For The Boys
Catered Crop: Recipe picks {Copics, twine, buttons, faux sewing}
Pile It On: Smells Like Rubber
Copic Creations: Favorite papers for copics (Neenah Cardstock)

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I truly appreciate your visits!

♥ & Aloha,

It's a totally fabulous card Joni, love it. Many thanks for sharing at Penny Black at Allsorts, but I'm sorry to say that you need to use a Penny Black stamp to be eligible for our prizes though.

Warm hugs

Now that's some masterly drawing there. Amazing. I'm afraid to even try coloring with monochrome colors. Thanks for sharing it with us at Catered Crop.
