Technicolour or Monochrome?

Hi peeps, Shirley here.  I've been playing with this gorgeous stamp from Karen Hayselden in the new Stampotique Originals range. Meet Herbert Hare - isn't he wonderful?

I stamped out a couple of images, and coloured one with Derwent Inktense pencils and gave it a light wash.  Once it was dry I went back and added more dry colour.  Around the whiskers:
 Around the ears:
And a  shadow wash to ground the image.
Then I did a monochrome version, using just the black pencil.  A light wash inside the ears - always wash inside your ears ;)
Then pencil shading on the face and around the outside of the image.
Followed by a shadow wash to ground the image.
Pop on over to the store for a look at the rest of Karen's and other Stampotique designers' ranges.

Have a great weekend!
