today I'd like to show you a card that was inspired by a brilliant technique video I saw on youtube the other day. Unfortunately today I don't remember where exactly that was, I've been searching the web for an hour. If anyone recognises the design, please let me know, so I can give credit.
I really wish I could draw, but I just don't have that talent, so I have to fake it.
I went to my local art supplies store an got two shades of grey Polychromos pencils, special for this technique. I already had a white one and I used the black outliner pencil from my Inktense set. With those I set out to try it myself.
I stamped one of the flowers of a Tim Holtz stamp set. Then I sketched in my shadow areas with a light grey at first, darkening the deepest shadows layer after layer.
At first I thought I didn't like it, but then I put it aside and looked at it with a little more distance and suddenly I did, so I decided to make it into a card.
I cut it down and used a border punch on the top edge. Then I cut an off-white card base and a black matte, also with a punched border.
For a sentiment I picked a German sympathy sentiment just because of the non-colour scheme.
Have a nice week-end
