Clean and Simple pencil coloring: A ruff life
Hi guys, Julie here with you today and I am sharing a clean and simple card using the Ruff life stamp set. I have been loving my poly chromos pencils lately and I wanted to challenge myself by making a simple one layer card with no line coloring. Since I am in the Fall mood, I wanted to use oranges for this project.
I started by die cutting a panel of Kraft cardstock to have a stitched border. Then, I stamped the image with Versamark ink. This ink leaves kind of a watermark on the paper, so it helps with the no line coloring. After that, I colored the image with my poly chromos.
It took me quite some time to achieve the final look, but the one advise I have for you is to not be afraid to add shadows with grey or black pencil. I wanted to add dimension to my piece, and I achieved it by deepening the shadows and adding grey or black pencils. It makes my image look more realistic.
