Drummer Boy


This is a Precious Moments image from an online coloring book.  I have probably had it for at least eight years.  I think this may be the first time I colored it.  I actually have the full Precious Moments Nativity set.  We had it up on our mantel for Christmas every year.  My daughter's sweet little cat walked along the mantel and randomly pushed off statues.  She broke one of the three wise men.  So I had to replace them all because they were only sold in a set.  She broke Mary. so the entire main set needed to be replaced.  She also broke several other pieces.  I feel bad about it now, but that cat went to the shelter the next day.  She had a habit of breaking glass.  I used to collect antique bottles and she used to love to push them off shelves also.

I colored this with Copics.  I tried using pastels to color the background.  I just a beginner with that.  I'll learn.  I asked Tom what he thought.  His reply was "very brown."  I wanted it whatever!

Whenever I'm on Paper Playful looking for challenges it seems all I notice are the Christmas challenges.Hopefully, I find some today!
