"Hush little baby, don't you cry"...

... "Mama's gonna sing you a lullaby."

This image was sent to me by Nancy (directmailscrapper) at the Stamp Shack for a Virtual Swap she is hosting. Our challenge was to color the image and create a card with it. I don't think I've ever colored an image quite like this one. It has all kinds of little black dots in the image. It was a challenge to know how much color to add or when to stop. I used prismacolor pencils and a blending stump dipped in odorless mineral spirits. If you like the image, Nancy said the stamp is by Paper Inspirations.

That's all for tonight, but I'll be back tomorrow to show you all the fabulous creations we made at our Stampin Up! get together this morning. We always have such a great time and our demo (Hi Jason!) always inspires us to try new techniques.

Have a wonderful weekend! Smiles, Pam :)
