Tutorial - colouring blonde hair with Prismacolor pencils on kraft card and a very cheerful card

Here is my next video for colouring with Prismacolor pencils on kraft card. This is for coloring blonde hair.

The image I am colouring is from Make It Crafty.

Colours I have used: Cream, Jasmine, Goldenrod, Mineral Orange, Brown Sienna, Dark Umber, White.

I also thought I'll show you a fun and sparkly card I made a while ago - suitable for ANYBODY's birthday!
I am using a stamp called Bart's BBQ and two sentiment sets: Whimsy Birthday Letter Seals Set and Whimsy Party Mini Letter Seals.
I coloured the image with watercolours using wet-in-wet method. The clouds are stippled on with gouache (poster) paints but acrylics would give the same effect. I also used white gouache (poster) paint slightly diluted with water for highlights.
The papers are from Basic Grey Life Of The Party pad. The orange glitter maatting is made with Papermania glitter strips and all the papers are eged with orange Stickles.

Hope it's of any use to you.
Thanks for watching!
