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
