CARD

As you may guess I colored the sunflowers using the new pencils. I color with pencils quite rarely and it was interesting to play with this new product. The majority of pencils that I own you need to put a lot of labor to color with (one of the reason I don’t reach to them often lol).

The new pencils from Altenew are watercolor ones – you just need to put a little bit of pigment and them blend it out with water.

So first I stamped them onto a watercolor panel using a light brown ink. And then moved on to coloring.

I was using a water brush to bled out pigment applied with pencils.

After coloring each flower with a base color I was adding details with a darker color.

The background I decided to make a dramatic pink. When I finished coloring I added a lot of small white splatters onto the panel.

Also to add some interest I torn the panel edges and wrapped a Natural Burlap String around it. Followed by foam mounting the panel onto a Parchment card base.

Lastly I added several Snow Crystals.
