from my sketchbook
Stamp: Elusive Images (Chocolate Baroque) UA5SP0327 Seadragon
Inks: Memories Black (image), Tea Dye Distress Ink (inked edges)
Initially I selected a large flower to colour but after several attempts with the Whispers Pens resulted in blotchy flat colouring I realised that once again I'd picked an unsuitable image for the medium/technique - it is one thing to copy the image/image type exactly but selecting one's own is another matter. A flat accumulation of penstrokes ensued when I tried shading the individual crenallations to give depth but I was rather pleased when I tried the above shading: dark to light from the bottom of each foliage tier/layer.
The numbering system of the Whispers Pens is my own as I now find it impossible to colour without having an idea of how the colour appears on cardstock as opposed to the cap. I used the sticky labels available at any stationery supplier, wrote the number by hand & cut to an appropriate size.
