Colouring Chipboard with Pencils

Hi Everyone

It's Wendy back for this months projects and a couple where I have gone back to something I enjoy immensely and that is colouring with pencils.  The adult colouring in phase is going gangbusters at the moment and I have to admit that I have been caught up in the craze for a while now.  What can I say I just love to colour! You can also achieve a beautiful finish using pencils to colour directly on chipboard as well (note the higher wax content of the pencils gives better coverage).

The first project is a "postcard" and like a couple of my previous projects this was just part of a pull-a-part book I picked up a typo.  The project just lets the chipboard stand out (I have inked this in archival black).  The colouring does take a while but the end result is so worth it. I have also used some black rhinestones to make it really pop!

The next project you can see how vibrant the colour is on the feathers - this has been done with prisma colour pencils.

Hope you like these projects and feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the colour combinations or how to use pencils on chipboard.

Have a great week and keep creating!
