What is a Freakshake you may ask? Well Collins' Dictionary explains it as "monstrous morphed milkshake". And what a treat to eat and to color up! When Alyce at Kit and Clowder posted the May class and it used the image called Squeak Shake by Di's Digi Stamps, I had to jump in.
I colored the image up with my Prismacolor colored pencils. It was so much fun to do, each little part doing its bit to complete the whole.
The sweet treats in the shake were great practice for lightsource and other art fundmentals that helps us achieve depth in our coloring.
Once I had finished the coloring, I trimmed the image down and sponged the edges with Desert Sand Memento ink. I added it to a dark teal card panel and then the panel onto a 5x7 cardbase. I stamped the Happy Birthday with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear heat embossed it.
