Colouring Challenge - Secret Garden Postcard - 6

So here is postcard number 6! Again I have only used my Faber Castell connector pens for this one as I am totally in love with them!

I wanted to see how these pens would cope with the more detailed and smaller sections that some of these postcards have to offer. And as Emma will tell you just how much going out of the lines will have bugged me. They did unfortunately wonder out of the lines a couple of times. Partly due to the ends of the pens not being fine enough and partly probably due to my tiredness.

I really tried to incorporate the tonal side to these pens and the way that just layering them once each layer is dry can create a whole new colour *absolutely love* it is like I have got more colours than pens! :D

The final result it definitely well up top in my favourites of the postcards I have done so far. I really feel like these pens and the postcards are helping me to rekindle a love for colour that I lost at uni. :) Who knows where this will lead.

I have also since brought a pack of 28 sharpies - which I hope to break out soon, just not sure they would cope with the detail of the postcards. Emma - we must find a use for them!
