No-line Pencil colouring on dark colour cardstock - Altenew Blooming Bouquet

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. If you like to use pencils to colour images in, but are tired of colouring onto white cardstock, then why not try coloured instead? It is very easy to do when you know-how and can add so much atmosphere to your card with such a simple change. For today's card, I used the Slate cardstock from Gina K Designs to create an elegant yet modest sympathy 'I'm here with you' card. Pair this with soft subtle stencil background and you've got a match made in heaven!

Written and photos No-line Pencil colouring on dark colour cardstock: 

To start, trim a piece of Gina K designs Slate cardstock down and place inside your MISTI. Using embossing ink, stamp the large floral bouquet from the Altenew Blooming Bouquet stamp set. I suggest stamping it twice so it is easier to see the design as you colour it in.

Next, using a selection of colour pencils, you can start colouring the design in. I used Faber Castel PolyChromos Pencils and these blended really well on Gina K cardstock. To ensure you get bright colours on cardstock, first, add a layer of white to the area you wish to colour. 
Once you've added white as a base layer, next start adding the colour to your area, going between dark and light colours. The white pencil is also a great tool to blend the colours by going back over the whole area with a white pencil.
Once the whole design is coloured, use a white gel pen to add small details to the centre of some of the florals. Next, using scissors, fussy cut the design out. 
For the background, adhere the Altenew Broken Chevron Stencil to a card base made out of matching Slate cardstock. 
To add the soft background, use a blending brush to gently apply Hicky Smoke Distress oxide over the top. When you are happy with the amount of coverage, remove the stencil. 
For added detail, add some gold paint splatter and set to one side to dry. Once the background has dried, foam mount the coloured floral design onto the card base with 3D foam squares. 
Lastly, heat emboss a sentiment from the Altenew Sentiment Strips stamp set in gold onto black cardstock and trim down. Using foam pads, mount this onto the card to finish.
