One Layer Simplicity: Shades of SummerPosted: August 1, 2014 Filed under: CAS, Coloured pencil, One-Layer Simplicity challenge, Poppy Time | Tags: CAS, Faber-Castell Polychromos Colour Pencil, Penny Black stamps, Tsukineko Memento inks 14 Comments
Susan is hosting the new One Layer Simplicity Challenge and she has chosen six gorgeous summer colour palettes to inspire us. I chose the one below which was a challenge as I don’t often combine pinks and yellows.
I just did a big clean up and reorganization of my craft area and in doing so found the card base above with the square already masked and the green sponging started. I sponged more of the square in memento peanut brittle. I then removed the mask and stamped the poppy in versafine onyx black. I decided to use my coloured pencils for the poppy because I had the colours in the photo. I blended one colour pencil over another rather than using a blending fluid or blender pencil.

Stunning. Loved the poppies against that masked & sponged center. Very rich pencil coloring. Your pencil blending is superb. TFS & Hugs
GORGEOUS!!!! Love the shading and the flower…wonderful combo Heather!
Pinks and yellows would not be my first thought, either… but it works so perfectly here. A stunning card, Heather.
