Rustic Wheel

Morning, didn't go to work today because I go to get my eyes checked today..........So I got to sleep in one extra day!!! Sat at the show I did buy a lot of stuff!  I out bought everyone else but it's okay, the biggest investment was a set of Spectrum Noir pens.  I am hopeing it will help me color better.  Keep in mind this was my first attempt with these and not to bad.  I'm no Theresa Momber but I'll watch and hopefully learn.  I was afraid of getting the pumpkins to dark but looks like they aren't dark enough, but it is waht it is.  I used 3327 Rustic Autumn Wheel ;  Martha Stewarts Layered Arches punche ; The orange swirly corners are from Spellbinders Floral Flourishes.  It doesn't show up but I also used a glue pen and added glitter to some of the grass.  Okay, back to the drawing board as they say, yall have a great day and I'll catch up later!

Olga,
I find coloring to be such a personal thing. I think your pumpkins look fine the way they are.

Glenda said...

I struggle with coloring. I wish mine looked as good as yours. This is lovely!

Becky said...

This turned out lovely Olga. I feel you about coloring, I think it is to dark then when it is up it looks to light.
sounds like you had a great time shopping.

You have the perfect pumpkins to color and they are so pretty, hope you had fun using the markers and will enjoy them. Just think how much time you will get to play now, using all of your new goodies.
Hope your eye exam went well, still waiting on them to call with my new glasses.
Had so much fun with you all on Sat!

Never heard of those pens but it does take a while to get use to using new products. I think it's a great card. Won't be long before your an ole pro.

Wish I could have joined you girls on your craft expedition. Looks like fun! "Hugs"

Hope you eye exam went well and your card is just lovely Olga! I am not a big colorer, but have some of those pens as well. I like them a lot and so far only color small images, as in REALLY small flowers, lol! Love your card and nice job on the coloring!! You go girl and keep at it...

Fancy new pens, huh? These pumpkins look awesome. I am proud of you for taking the coloring bull by the horns, and giving it a go. You always do great things with this stamp, and it has to be one of my very favorites for Fall. Hope the peepers had a good check up.

Great start!! You'll be a coloring fool in no time!!

It's great how you paired the pumpkins with the fence and wheel images. I've not worked with the Spectrum Noir pens, but I guess they are similar to Copics since they are alcohol based. I just love my Copics. I think you did a fantastic job coloring.... looks great!
