Ground shading using Pencils & Stickles....

Morning all.....

Vicky here today and this month I'm going to let you into my little secret how I do ground shading...lots of fellow crafters have asked me how I do here goes...and it's sooooo!

These are the items I will be using..

Sansodor Low Odour Solvent
Black Prismacolour Pencil
Stickles in Stardust
Paper Stub

I colour my chosen image in I have used one of the new Digi Stamps from the Wedding collection "Groom Henry & Ring Bearer" which was released this month..

Then using my black Prismacolour pencil I add some shading beneath my image as shown above..

I then use my paper stub by dipping the end into the Sansodor and gently blending in the colour as you can see above...

I then attach the image to my card/project then add the careful not to add loads...just enough to add a tad of sparkle by going over all the black pencil...simples...!

and here is my finished tag..

For more information please pop over to my blog here..

  6. Hi Vicky , great tutorial, I use a similar method but I tend to go for a very dark purple for shadows and grounding and instead of Sandor I use Lavender oil or baby oil to blend, then use stickles if needed. I will give this way a try, thanks for sharing, love Carole Lockhart Stuart.
