I dont have a card for you today but while I have been watching X-factor I wanted to have a play trying to colour with pencils and Kraft paper I have done 2 images one magnolia and one wee stamp I will make them into cards but just wanted to show you what I have been playing with tonight (ooh that sounds naughty) lol
so her is the first one I did one of the lovely christmas release magnolia's
This image has been coloured with polychromos pencils which are oil based pencils you can also use prisma pencils which are wax based pencils it will give the same effect.
To colour this way it is all about lots of layers, first before putting down your shadow layers I didn't use any blending solution but blended with the pencils themselves that's why you need lots of layers in order to get the shading layer to move I think this is called burnishing. I am quite happy how they turned out it did take a bit of a while to do it but that was more to do with me not really sure on what where the best colours to use as so used to colouring with copics this method is a little different.
The second image is a Wee stamp
I used pinks on this one and did the grounding a bit different
so there you go hope you like. I have used polychromo pencils before but more for adding shading to copics with a blending solution and stumps. I will make them into cards and blog them.
