Freehand art, meet Halbert Hare!

Hello to all.  I have just finished my first hand drawn and hand coloured image. 
This is Halbert Hare and he is now on a card!
 I used Spectrum Noir ColourBlend pencils and I am so pleased with how this hare has turned out.
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you would have seen him as a work in progress.


I have not attempted freehand drawing before and was delighted as he began to take shape.  It was so much fun creating his face, features and fur!  I used Spectrum Noir ColourBlend pencils for the drawing and a touch of white gel pen for highlights.


Materials used to draw and colour this image
Spectrum Noir ColourBlend pencil used to create this hare:Espresso, Timberwood, Saddle Brown, Cinnamon, Cider, Maple, Pewter, Pebble, Bark, Stone, Black. 
White gel pen.
Materials for card:Black Matt Card, Kraft Card, Sheena Stamping Card 
Sara Signature paper and Hessian.
Sentiment Leonie Pujol.


I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:



 Happy Mother's Day to all of you in the UK who celebrate this.  
Hope you enjoy your day!
