and a close up of the colouring in!
I just used normal crayola pencils to colour in the image from Penny Blacks 'for you' stamps. Colouring in using pencils is a little different to copics and blending pens. I found it easier to use several shades of one colour to get the 'gradual' effect, for example, the petals I used blue for the entire petal and then a darker blue for the base of each petal to darken the area, same with the leaf. I like the effect of the pencils on kraft colour cardstock.
I have also used paper from my fav range at the moment and that is MME Stella and Rose - Gertie papers. The lace part of the card is a doily from Paper Inlings 'colour me doilys' where I inked it with versa color 'old rose'. the pearls are Kaisercraft champagne pearl strips.
This is a slightly different style of card that I normally do and I definitely hardly use lace but I love a challenge and I was excited about doing this card.
