First stamp with Prismacolor pencils

Hello everyone!! I hope you are all having a great weekend so far! I am sorry for being away but things have been super busy and hopefully everything will go back to normal soon!!

Well the other day I decided to buy some prismacolor pencils and some cute stamps and well let me just day it is definatley harder than i thought lol I have never wasted so much paper lol!! Oh well practice makes perfect! I just threw this card together quickly with a digi stamp i colored from the Octopode Factory, I have bought a few of them and I think they are adorable!

Here is my super quick card ( i didn't want to get to fancy, I wanted the focus to be on the cute little stamp).

Ok well this is really the first one I have completed and I kinda sorta like the way it looks but like I said I am just starting to get the hang of it :) What do you think?? I am having some trouble with the skin shading and hair do you have any tips for me?? I would love to hear some of your opinions and any advice on using the pencils!

Ok well I better go back and practice some more!

Very nice! Love the colors you chose. Did you use mineral spirits to blend the pencil colors, or just leave the coloring natural?
