Creative Knockouts #152: Anything Goes!

Good morning stampers! I'm a day late, so two posts today! Yesterday started a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts where the challenge is....Anything Goes! This week's sponsor is The Paper Shelter, and they are offering a wonderful prize to a lucky player!

Here is my project, featuring Casual Boy:





I love this image kit. I usually go for the cute little girl images at TPS, but his face and look just screamed at me! AND I even hand-colored him. Because all the TPS "sets" include a pre-colored version and black & white line art, it's sometimes tempting to use the pre-colored version. They are always well thought out, color-wise, and nicely done with the highlights, etc. However, I really wanted to try my hand at coloring him. I got a large set of Prismacolor Pencils on Prime Day (as opposed to the random colors I would buy here and there at stores, never really getting enough to do shading and have "sets" of colors for combos...), and I had to give them a try. It's been a long time since I've used pencils, so for my first stab I was pretty happy with him :)
