Waiting For The Parade & Spectrum Noirs

When you say 'Summer' most peoples thoughts go immediately to the beach. Having lived on the East Coast shore my entire life I too think of sun and sand but for me Independence Day and Summer are virtually synonymous. So when I first spotted the Summer Challenge at the Spectrum Noir site I went on a treasure hunt for just the right image and found this totally adorable little girl (the illustration is titled  'Waiting for The Parade') over at Mo Manning's Digital Pencil.

This is one of the first images I've colored exclusively with my new Specturm Noir marker set and I will admit that I wasn't totally convinced that I could avoid dipping into my larger Prismacolor Art Marker collection but in fact the set of 72 markers were more then enough to do the job.

Happy Crafting!

I love it! It's so cute and colored just right! I've been wanting to ask about those markers...trying to see if I can figure out how to swing them. TFS!
