Totally Fintastic Sepia

So for my last post this month for One Crazy Stamper I've tried a new technique - using just two colors of Prismacolor pencils to create an all Sepia colored image on Kraft cardstock!  I first saw the technique on a Designed to Color showcase here, and since I love the sepia look I had to give it a try.
For my first attempt at this technique I think it turned out okay, maybe a little bit darker then I would really like, but practice makes perfect.  The image is "Bella" from Whimsy Stamps, that I stamped on kraft cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I then used Prismacolor PC938 White and PC 948 Sepia to color the highlights and shadows, and blended the colors together with Gamsol and two blending stumps.  The dp is Bo Bunny's Key Lime Making Waves.

  1. I like this look! Very cool technique and I don't think it is too dark at all. I like this so much that I think I'm going to try it.
