Pencil on black

My coloured pencils feature more often in my projects these days. To create this card I stamped the Penny Black floral stamps in delicata white shimmer ink then coloured with my Faber Castell polychromos pencils. The feature image is from a 2-stamp set called ‘appreciation’ and the background image from a floral set called ‘ebulliant’.

I used a white pencil to lightly colour the flowers and leaves before adding other colours over the top. I also coloured over the border and sentiment with a sharp white pencil to make them pop a little more.

The delicata shimmer white ink definitely has shimmer to it and the overall effect of the pencils and ink on black is a bit like a printed fabric


Stamps: appreciation 30-488, tranquility 30-484, ebulliant 30-747 (PB)


Paper: neenah black, red

Pencils: Faber Castell Polychromos

    This is a fantastic look with the pencils on black card, and using the white ink and white pencil gives the colours over the top a brighter look than they would otherwise have Heather. I love the whitened edges and also adding white pencil to the sentiment which sharpens it up. x
