This card is the result of my first attempt at coloring with colored pencils (not watercolor pencils). I'm pleased with the result I achieved with the medium - and will definitely be using it more often now.

I also wanted to show you the difference in color when using watercolor paper and when using Whisper White. Using a scrap piece of Whisper White I stamped the image then colored a few petals using the same colored pencils as I did on the card. The watercolor holds the vibrant colors of the pencil while the Whisper White keeps the pencil on the surface. When I blended on the WW, much of the color dissipated leaving a much lighter/pastel look to the image.
Hope you enjoyed the practice sample today. I hope you'll give this technique a try. It is a bit time consuming - but loads of fun!
Thanks for visiting today and have a great day.
