{Spotlight Project} Pencil Coloring with Cornelia


Hi, Cornelia here today, showing you some pencil coloring of Deepti's wonderful set Lotus Love.



I started out stamping on kraft paper and masking some of the stamps.




I don't throw out my masks. I just stick them onto the plastic sheet to have available for future use.



I then colored in the stamps with white Speedball ink.



After it was dry I lightly colored my little scene with Inktense pencils.



I took a brush with water and blended the colors. Inktense pencils are VERY intense, so use them sparingly.



I then decided splatters are in order and liberally splattered in white, light pink and black (after I used my masks again). Lastly I trimmed of a little bit from the side and mounted it onto white card stock.


Hope you liked this - see you in two weeks!

  2. How could one possibly avoid liking this? It's really beautiful. Love the way the coloring is softened and kind of ethereal against the kraft. Magical is a good name for the effect.
