Pencil practice

It takes ages to colour with  pencils and this one is no exception. It took a good few hours to get all of these layers down on the image. I used prismacolour pencils as I don’t yet have enough Caran D’Ache to get the effect I wanted for this little lady. She is a Candibean stamp that I have had in my stash for ages and I just fancied colouring her up to add to my 2019 Christmas cards collection. Her little dogs are so cute and I had one of these as a child. I am going to enter this card in to Di’s digi challenge where the theme is snow much fun.
