At the beginning of my travel journal I have a couple of blank pages to work with and this is one of them. I stamped Desiree from Make it Crafty in black ink then colored it with a No.2 pencil. It was the only thing I had with me at the moment and I haven’t actually colored a grey scale image for long a while. By the way, I’m loving the MiC rubber stamps because I can use them on old books like this where a digital image can’t “go.” 😀
There are a few areas that I would have like to spend more time on, especially in getting more depth and shadows. However, the No.2 pencil was a bit too hard for this old paper and after a few layers of coloring the paper would start to rub off. So I had to call it quits before I damaged the paper too much. I think it will be enough once I am able to get more pages finished in the book and will probably stand on it’s own nicely.
