Colored Pencils and Watercolors cards

Hi friends !

This week is Technique week at Penny Black blog. The designers were asked to make projects using different technique or media. Today i'm going to share how i use Penny Black stamps with Color pencils and Watercolors.

For Color pencils, i really love how their colors stands out on kraft paper. I am going to make a lot of tags for my students, because using color pencils definitely help me on the budget (compared to Copics). Tips : use white color pencil to highlight some part of the image, or make accent. 

Celebrate tag

more tags
I still have 19 tags to work on !

For watercolors, Penny Black has the BEST stamp image to go with. If i am using watercolors, i definitely will pick stamp image with more details. Once its colored, there's no need to add another embellishment or details, just adhere the picture to a coordinating color card stock .

When coloring, i prefer to make not-so-smooth color blends, to show the highlights
