Steampunk on a Sunday morning..

Good Sunday morning Dreamerz..

This morning I want to show you my colored image from the Nikki Burnette coloring book Spellbinding Images.  I have been dying to get into this book and add my own special flair with color to the images yet I have been intimidated by some of the gorgeous work done by others that I have seen in the fan groups.  So I decided to get my toes wet and chose one of the 3x4 inch pictures in the front of the book that were designed for you to try out your color scheme on. I must say that the added grayscale shading really takes the guesswork out of the coloring process.  I did use multiple colors on almost all of it to add more depth to the image. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to do coloring and have a more realistic look.

Card Recipe:
3x4 image from Spellbinding Images: A Grayscale Fantasy Coloring Book: Beginner's Edition (Volume 1)

Thank you Dreamerz for liking, looking, and commenting on all my projects.
Until tomorrow, have a great day..
