This was the first card I colored with Derwent Inktense pencils.
I stamped the image on watercolor paper and embossed it. Makes it easier to stay in the lines for me! I had so much fun with the pencils. To get the shading I lightly applied colored pencil to the darkest areas. I pulled the color in to the rest of the area with a water brush. I love that there is no pencil on the light colors of the leaves, for instance, that all came from the water brush bringing color over to that area. So easy! I colored the background with colored pencils but wanted a bit more intensity around the edges so I inked up the edges with Ranger Faded Jeans Distress Ink.
