Altenew • Coloring on Black

This post is also available in: Russian

Hi there!

I’m on Altenew blog today, sharing a holiday card using using Poinsettia & Pine stamps set and coloring on black. For this card I wanted to create a picture of .. black fence with hand drawn picture, in winter so frosted a bit, snow flurry… Holiday card, coloring with pencil on black background by @s_shayevich. Stamps - @altenew. #card #cardmaking #handmade #diyFor this card I used technique of coloring with pencils over white ink. White ink is always pigment (or a hybrid one, but still carrying properties of pigment ink). They aren’t absorbed by paper but stay on top of it. I like using this effect to create a base on non-white backgrounds for further coloring with other ink or pencils.  Head over to Altenew blog if you’re interested how this was made. I have a simple photo-tutorial there.

Hope you like this technique and will give it a try one day 🙂

Thank you for stopping by!
