I’ve used the rather whimsical Tea Pot Birdie from Digi Doodle Shop.I’ve coloured with Polychromos Pencils.Normally I would just shade a little colour then blend it out with low odour oils thinners and a paper stump but thought I would try something different – well for me anyway!I took a few pencils in different shades of the same colour,laying down colour from dark to light,using the last to blend out.This was definitely a learning curve and I did a few issues with the amount of pressure I put on the pencils but by the end I certainly felt a bit more in control.I did use a dry paper stump to diffuse any hard edges of the grey I shaded the teapot with.Although I feel I could do better next time I am quite pleased at how pretty this card turned out 🙂
