House of Cards



March 2018
Use Colored Pencils on Dark Card and/or Colors

Time for another challenge at House of Cards.  This is a technique I don't do often,
coloring on dark cardstock:


I used a Cornish Heritage Farms image Poppies, stamping it in  white pigment ink
before and after coloring it with colored pencils on dark purple cardstock.  I used
a white pencil to add some highlights. I always enjoy a new technique. 
I hope you will join in the fun, details at House of Cards.

Well you should do this more often - the coloring on the dark cardstock is beautiful especially in the purple. Love your layout as well. We need to add this to our every growing list of things to do.
