Polychromos Poinsettia

Polychromos-Poinsettia

Well, isn’t that title a mouthful?  LOL

I’ve seen some gorgeous designs lately using dark card stock and either gouache, which I don’t have, or pencils.  Pencils it is, since I don’t own any gouache paints (yet).

The poinsettia was heat embossed in black.  Yes, I know.  I seem to be obsessed that with poinsettia image.  But, as you can see, there are so many options for working with it.

Simple coloring with my Polychromos pencils, a bit of washi across the bottom and some letters I found in one of my embellishment drawers (don’t ask!).  To finish it off, I’ve used some Distress Stickles for the center.

Back soon with  more my sweet friends…

  1. AMAZING! This is so dramatic on black. Those pencils have almost a metallic shine to them. Great job LeeAnne. And what a great way to show how different an image can look by changing colours and mediums. xx
