TGF Farm Fresh Friday Challenge: Water coloring with pencils!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday!  This week's  Farm Fresh Friday Challenge is to Use Pencils!  

I have a few cards to share for some inspiration...

So to be honest, I have not had much practice in coloring with pencils and in fact, I only own like 2 colored pencils! Lol  So I knew this was definitely going to be a challenge for me.   I didn't want to buy a new set (although I have been eyeing those Prisma sets for some time!) but instead found some old water color pencils I had not used in forever!   I had so much fun taking these out to play!  I basically just colored up my images and then took a small paintbrush and some water to blend in the colors.  I tried to shade the best I could although it's not as easy as with my copics.   Still, I'm really happy with the way they came out and I made two cards just because I was having so much fun! :)   The sweet girl I used is from the adorable Wild Child set.   And yes, I'm still on my background kick and used some distress inks and water to make the backgrounds on my cards.  I thought this tied in well with my water colored image! :)  

Please check out The Greeting Farm blog to get the details on this challenge and to see what the other "Pencil" projects from the DT Farmers!  Hope you all have a great weekend!!!
