Play Time - Play Date Card

I'm work-in-progress with learning coloring techniques. I am finding that I Love working with watercolor crayons when coloring images. I will be getting watercolor pencils to see how I like them as well. I think they will give me some new techniques to try. I loved watercolor painting  back when I was 13yrs. old. I at the time was getting pretty good for that age. The teacher featured several pieces I had done in the classroom. Which gave me all the more encouragement to get even better. I do make my own watercolor background papers also and will post some of my scrapbook pages I did before I ever owned a Cricut.
 I'm not competely new to working with watercolors. But coloring stamped images is new territory for me.
I intentionally went outside the lines in coloring this image to create shadows and interest for the image.
When I create I like to create freely. I don't always follow the expected rules. I want my art or coloring to stretch the rules by working outside the constrictions of the lines of stamped images. I think it adds character, personal style and interest to the stamped images.
Your ideas on coloring may differ from mine. Thats ok! That is what defines our own personal styles when creating our Art for our projects.
Below is a Play Time - Play Date Card.
I think it is a neat way to send out a card to get children together for playdates.
