Colouring with Polychromos


I thought I would step out of my comfort zone and have a go at colouring with pencils. I've had the Faber-Castell Polychromos for ages but I just keep looking at them and stroking them occasionally.


So it was time to put these bad boys into action, well...3 of them, Grass Green, Light Purple Pink and Dark Chrome Yellow. 


I used the stunning Beautiful Day stamp set by Altenew which is a layering stamp set but I just used the flower and leaf outline bits. This card is for a fellow crafter who needs some encouragement.


As always, the hardest part of this card was getting those darned sequins in just the right place but I got there eventually.
Time to colour card = 1hr
Time to position sequins = 3 days

Beautiful pencil coloring! I never have the restraint to leave those big open white spaces, but they look soooo good! TFS!
