Monochrome Colouring

Hi!  This is not a usual day for me to post on my blog but I've been a bit busy recently and needed a little creative time so I did a bit of colouring and stamping this morning with some of my Visible Image goodies.

I recently invested in a few polychromos pencils I need a little practice to help me get used to colouring with this new medium.  So I'm starting off very gently using just one pencil to get the hang of how to do a little shading with them.

I thought it'd be fun to do shading using a stencil rather than a stamp, so I picked the amazing new stencil from Visible Image called Collision and drew around it with the white polychromo first. Then I removed the stencil and shaded around the outlines.

To finish the card, I stamped the owls from the Into The Woods set in white pigment ink, added some gems and stamped a sentiment from No Space For Drams set

Stamps and Stencil Used:
