Aloha Guys!

 

Today I want to share how to achieve depth using some inexpensive colored pencils.  I’ll be using some Gerda Steiner Deisgns stamps,both rubber and photopolymer.  I accidentally purchased some Reeves color pencils, thinking it was watercolor pencils.  I threw away the packaging so I can’t return it.  Since it can’t be returned, I decided to try them out.  These pencils are not as pigmented as an artist quality pencils,creating more wax blooms than colors.  In this case, you need to layer on multiple colors to achieve depth.  You actually have to work a little harder to get the look of dimension.  You can use a solvent, such as gambol but I like to do the blending with the pencils if I can.  I hope you like this card and try this technique with your pencils.   I thank you guys so much for stopping by and please subscribe, follow and leave me a comment.  I always enjoy reading all the comments.  Thanks again.

  1. Very cute card! Thanks for showing how to layer the color with regular colored pencils, especially the shadows and line work on the tree. I only have DerWent and Prisma watercolor pencils so I plan to apply your coloring techniques when I use them. THANKS a million for the video. 🙂

    • Thank you so much, I’m glad you enjoyed it. I think color pencils takes longer to color than Copic markers or watercolor, but it’s fun to change things up a bit. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
