Studio Sessions: PITT Pastel Pencils, 4 of 4

It has been an exciting week launching Studio Sessions with Jill. We are already working on the next series and can't wait to share the inky fun.  Before we close the week, one more card using PITT Pastel Pencils.

Today I am taking advantage of the rich opacity of PITT Pastel Pencils and using them on colored cardstock.
A Friend for Life
Poppies (Penny Black) were inked with a Stamper's Big Brush pen in black and stamped on grey cardstock.  PITT Pastel Pencils from the blue/green, red/yellow and neutrals collections were used to color and highlight the flowers.  The neutral PITT Pastel Pencils added subtle shading accents underneath the blooms and along the stems.

Tip/Hint:  If desired, a light fixative can be sprayed on the artwork to prevent smudging. 

The flowers were masked to protect them while Letter Background (Penny Black) inked with a Stamper's Big Brush Pen in cold grey was stamped across the background.  Before removing the masks, gesso from Faber-Castell's Textural Accents Sampler was "flicked" onto the design. 

The artwork was adhered to a panel stamped with the sentiment (Penny Black) in black pigment ink.  The entire piece was then placed on the front of a card blank with dimensional foam tape.

And here is Jill's Friday finale.
