Hello there, today I have a card to share that was a little out of my comfort zone. I am used to colouring images with a very blended look but having seen lots of Marika Rahtu's work with colour pencils, I decided to give this look a go.
I started off by stamping the WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquets: Dahlias stamp set on to a panel of white cardstock, using MFT Pink lemonade Hybrid ink. I then added a light layer of colour to the image using Copic Markers. I then went in with Polychromos coloured pencils to add in the detail.
The panel was added to a white A2 card base with foam sheet. I then stamped the sentiment, from the WPlus9 That Is All stamp set, on to some more white cardstock. This was cut out and added to the panel with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few sequins.
