From The Heart

penny black rose

welcome to a new follower; thank you so much for taking an interest in what i create.

i discovered a new unique challenge, poppy sketches, that is a sketch and colour challenge; i was curious to see how the red would work with teal and gray and i like how it turned out. i stamped the penny black image on a gesso covered piece of the dark gray paper and coloured with derwent inktense pencils which, as their name implies, are intense. if you haven’t tried them, they’re used the same as watercolour pencils, but they’re permanent ink so colours won’t get muddy. i tore the dark and light gray mats, stamped the flourishes sentiment and cut the heart from a whimsy paper pattern to make this note card. thanks for popping by.
