Black swan

I've been experimenting this week with only using one pencil to colour an image.  Flame in Black from Ching-Chou Kuik has been coloured with a black polychromos pencil and that's it nothing else!

I actually love how these images are coming out - it reminds me of when I was a kid and used to only have graphite pencils to sketch and shade with.

This card has been used as my inspiration for the Outlawz Sketch Team this week.

The black design paper is from UHK Gallery and I've just used some white and black card stock in addition to this.  The white card stock has been cut using some crafting scissors to give it the scalloped edge.

There's a black swirl which was bought from Hobby Craft ages ago (only used half of it) and black self adhesive gems.  The flowers and stamens are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

So that's it for my inspiration for this week
Hope you come and join the fun

What a great exercise to expand your artistic skills - and it came out beautifully Andrea! Framing it with only the white and black is perfect to showcase this image! So glad you are sharing your project and creativity at 613 Ave C – thank you!
