Water Can Ellie for Paper Nest Dolls

Happy Monday my friends!  I know it's officially Spring but the weather in the Mid-West is still a little chilly - but I couldn't help coloring this image with the hopes that Mother Nature will warm the weather a bit!!!!   I have another inspiration card for the new Paper Nest Dolls monthly challenge that starts today, Monday, 4/6 and runs the entire month.

My image this month is "Watering Can Ellie" and she's colored with my Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils.  I used these pencils on last month's card and just had to give it another go.  This image is also a little older but you can find it in the store HERE.
Here's a close up of the coloring on Ellie....
Don't forget, the top winner will receive a prize pack varying each month and to be considered for this prize you must use a PND image.  The winner this month will be able to select 8 digital images of their choice fromThe Paper Nest Dolls shop (check it out HERE).   Add a direct link for your project to the challenge blog  HERE

Inktense Pencils used:
Skin:  Baked Earth, Crimson
Hair:  Saddle Brown, Bark
Dress:  Fuschia (and black pen for dots)
Apron/Bow:  Teal Green

Other Supplies Used:

  1. I love how the watercoloring looks! I really need to get some new pencils and get into watercoloring again! Lovely card for Spring!

  2. Wow this is just fabulous and I love how striking the pink and aqua are with the black on your patterned papers.
