House Mouse Blue Jeans

Sometimes an idea just hits you like a freight train, this isn't one of those ideas lol. Instead it was a slow steam train meandering through the countryside, stopping at every station and getting nowhere fast. The only thing I knew for sure was that I was going to use the B90's to colour the jeans, I thought I would use all of them but in the end I only used 3, I could have taken more time and gotten better shading but sometimes quick and dirty is all that is required.

I wish I was someone who could spend hours colouring each image, improving my technique all the time but unfortunately I am not. I usually need a card in a hurry and the majority of the cards I send are to family and friends who have no idea I even coloured the image and didn't print it, not that its an excuse to be sloppy but rather that when I am pushed for time I don't beat myself up about it.

Enough waffling, the card as you can see is all about the image, there wasn't a lot of room for anything else lol.

Know exactly what you mean about both wishing you could take more time and do a "proper job" and about your efforts not being appreciated by every recipient. However, I personally think this IS a proper job and your image/s adorable
