Color Throwdown #467

Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by Lori!!

We're playing with teal, green, and red. So, I tried something new!!

Yana created this fabulous card (yes, it's gorgeous- watch the video!) using pencils on black card stock and i have been wanting to try my hand at that. Okay... I think it takes a bit more practice and a knowledge base of coloring on black cardstock... the colors can end up being a bit different- my blue is more blue than teal and red is a "bugger" to get to cover black!! 

I stamped Altenew's Sketched Flowers onto black cardstock with versamark and heat embossed with gold. Next, came the coloring. I have Derwent Inktense pencils which are vibrant colors but, the card stock seemed to "soak up" the colors and I had to let it dry in between and then re-color. Yes, I was a newbie at this!!

Some inspiration...
