My crafty friend Darnell is celebrating 5th birthaversary of her blog along with 1000+ followers as well as posts. My today's card is for NBUS Challenge #8. The theme is color pencil on kraft. A while back I got the altenew-peony bouquet stamp set to practice pencil coloring with just out lined image while using the layered stamped image as guide line. But never got chance to start with it. So when I saw the theme of challenge, I knew what I wanted to do...:) Here is the card!
I stamped the outline flower with versafine ink using MISTI on kraft cs. I left the stamp in its place in MISTI. I colored the flower and leaves with Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils. A zillion and some strokes after, once you are happy with the coloring, put the cs back in the MISTI and stamp with versafine once again to reinforce the black outline for a crisp image. These pencils are very creamy and you can build layers very efficiently with them.
