TOP TIP no 1 - Really rub on the back of the Peel-Off to stick it down well, so the pencils tip does not shift it!
TOP TIP no 2 - Choose your colours well 2-3 shades.
TOP TIP no 3 - Use good quality pencils as they blend better. (I use Sakura Bruynzeel -all available at JAPONICA -boxed sets or sold inidividually - 48 fab colours that blend really well)
3 colours used for this one - red, peach and brown!
Start at tip of flower - using a strong colour - and "feather" the colour down the area. Use the same colour at opposite end of shape (or use a 2nd colour if wanting to use 3 colours total). Then add another colour to the central area -shading over the 1st (and 2nd) colour -to blend - you will get an interesting shaded area of colour!
I hope you like these simple cards. I have tried to show you quite an assortment of colours that have shaded well together. The colours I used are all labelled on the samples in store.
