For today's card, I wanted to show how coloring looks on dark cardstock with pencils. This is a piece of Elegant Eggplant from Stampin Up. I inked the stamp with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. The ink really won't show at all when you're done, but I didn't want to use black.
This is actually the third image I tried coloring this way. I only have a set of 12 pencils, so my colors are a bit limited. This unity kit is called Be Present, and I like the way it turned out. Trying to photograph it was another story!! I kept getting a glare!
I started coloring this the same way I would color on lighter card. Laying down a light layer, then slowly adding in shading. Her dress is done with two blues and white. Hair with brown, red and yellow. Rose is done with purple and white. And I found a Prisma beige pencil in my stash that I bought years ago, perfect for flesh tone. I shaded also with light brown.
I kept this card really simple. I did add some die cut photo corners in gold, to set off the purple panel. Cute plaid paper from MFT, a little doily, and a light yellow card base. I think that's all this needed,
One more day for me to share another Unity project during my GIU week! Don't forget to stop by and see what Sandra has made! Thank you for stopping by!
