Hi all. I have joined the Pink Inkers Group on Facebook and their challenge this month is colouring using just pencils with minimal added colour. I luckily have a range of pencils which I have had for years but haven't really used them as a colouring medium with a stamp.
I used B, 2B, 3B and 6B pencils to build up the shading having first stamped the images from the Sea Turtle set using Versafine Smokey Gray ink and then added a background using a Sweet Dixie stencil called Splash, and using a stencil brush I managed to frame the turtle without getting the blue ink on the image itself. I made sure I didn' t make it too dark so as not to overshadow it, starting darker around it and gradually fading it out using Adirondack Stonewashed ink.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope to see you again soon.
