Stockings4Soldiers watercolor pencil

Cards made for Stockings4Soldiers, a service project for Iowa National Guard soldiers in Kosovo or Iraq. Most cards are one of a series of 10.

Watercolor pencil on card stock. I found a set of 24 basic Faber-Castell watercolor-pencils in a tube on clearance this summer. Before that, I had only used Crayola wcps, so I really like the wider mix of colors.

I scribble layers of colors and I give them a wash. The sun is darker, thicker. No great art, but quick, easy, fun to see how it turns out.
