 For my card, I used the new "Newton's Naptime" stamp set and
coloring pencils by Prisma.


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and then proceeded to color
in the image with a series of colored pencils, starting with the lightest shade and
then adding a darker color for the shading.
I used Gamsol and a blending stump to achieve a beautiful watercolored look!
The image was then carefully cut out and attached to the center of a die-cut
oval.  The papers are by Echo Park Paper.
