I Love Pencil Shading.

DSC03562

Hello everyone! I have a card to show you today. It is based on the colour story at PDCC which is Black and White with a SPLASH of any one colour.

DSC03573

I have had this flower design printed out for quite some time. The print is pencil shaded. I always prefer pencil shading to colouring.

The houndstooth pattern on the hand cut scallops is also a printout. I know you can see the pearls on the flowers, but can you see the pearls placed between scallops (in the valley)?

The shaded grey lace and ribbons are from my stash… These two butterflies are the last of the tiny ones… you wont be seeing these till I get a new Silhouette blade.

The sentiment is from TradeFish Designs.

Here is another view.

I took about fifty shots of this card and not even one came out right. But I like how everything came together. I especially like the houndstooth pattern here, it gels everything together.

Thanks for stopping by!
