September Giveaway Winner... A Reworked Moose Card

Hello and welcome,

I had this card for sale originally with just the moose and the "Hello" sentiment stamped in Hero Arts Cup O'Joe brown ink but decided to rework it with Prisma color pencils and masked off the moose then added mountains and trees from an older Great Impressions stamp! Now I know my coloring needs help but I need to practice so here's one of my practice pieces that I can send to a friend!

And this is where the MISTI tool is invaluable... after coloring the image I lost the details on the moose, so I used my MISTI to align the moose stamp up again and restamp it in Versafine detail black ink! It proved to give me back the details I wanted and give a sort of 3D effect to the moose! Here are a couple of close up shots of the moose... he looks like he's looking back at ya! I used a black Sakura Glaze pen (for 3D effect too) to touch up his eye to give it more life-like appearance! I used Glossy Accents over the "Hello" to add some shine and texture!

Are you ready for the giveaway winner....
