Hi. Another long day at work today. Now I am off for the next 5, yeah. Thanks for stopping in for a look. I got the idea for this card in an article in Stamp and Scrap magazine. The owner of Magenta Stamps explained the technique. Use a fairly open stamp, I did balloons too and they turned out great. Stamp in white ink, on black cardstock. Using several shades of the same color pencil, color your image in starting with the lightest color and shading in with the other two.
After you have colored it in go over the white with a white pencil to make it stand out. Go on to the next area and do the same thing, until you have finished. Really simple and effective. Have a nice day tomorrow, supposed to have rain here. Hang in there Sheila, only three more weeks until April 15th!
