A bit of a different coloring technique

I just wanted to pop in & show you this Lockhart Peonies image that I colored in a new way for me. This image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, but all the coloring was done with Pebbles Metallic Creams Chalk. I was using these for a demo at Angela's Happy Stamper a couple of weeks ago, and I wanted to see just how much detail you could get with them. I have to say, you can get a pretty good amount of detail, as you can see here. It has a looser feel than you would ordinarily achieve with pencils or markers, but you can still get a great look, and even some shading by using the light ones first, then the dark (as you can see here with the pink flowers and the blue container).

And as I like to do with Lockhart images, I kept the rest of the card very simple so as not to detract from the beautiful stamped image. I love letting the image take center stage!

I hope your week is off to a great start! Be well.
