Sweet CentrepiecePosted: April 1, 2021
I’m really enjoying pencil on kraft cardstock right now; the colours pop more than you might think on a brown base. This line image from Penny Black is called ‘sweet centerpiece’, cardstock is Bazzill kraft and the pencils are Derwent inktense.
I stamped the image off to the side of the panel in archival jet black ink and coloured with a mix of purples and purply-pinks. Some flowers have a base of white with pinks and purples over the top, others have pink first with white blending over the top. The large daisy is a mix of deep red with shading of burgandy. I used three different greens, blending two at a time to get variety on the different plants.
I used a black micron pen to redraw a few lines that were muted by the coloured pencil and also drew a dots & dashes frame around the panel with the same fine tip pen (I used a rectangle frame die as a guide). I splattered some hydrus white paint over the panel before adding the sentiment from PB ‘magical friendship stamped archival jet black.
Wishing you joy and hope this Easter.
