My sister-in-law just got back from q-school. Q-school is how golfers turn professional. They go to a week-long tournament and the top golfers are chosen to get tour cards. My sis-in-law didn't get her card. She barely missed it by 3 strokes.
It sucks to try out for something and have it not work out. It sucks more to think of all the time, money, and effort she put forth for this. So I thought that maybe a happy card might help make her smile. And really, who could resist smiling at this adorable panda by The Paper Shelter?!
I colored him with Prismacolor pencils. I mentioned in my last post that I'd let you know how I've been coloring the images. What I've been doing is choosing 3 tones for shading each area (a light, mid, and dark tone). I've been laying a base coat of the mid-tone with very light shading and blending using OMS. Then I have been shading over the base coat with pencils (not using a solvent) following the technique here. Then I burnish the area using the light tone and lastly add highlights using white like the video suggests.
Here's the finished panda card:
The camera paper went with a "punny" sentiment I have, but the stamp was a bit too long for the area that I wanted it, so I changed the sentiment. The paper stayed though, because I liked it.
