Welcome back for Day 4 of my 2018 Christmas Series! Today I wanted to color with some color pencils, so I pulled out my Arteza 72 color set! I must say these are great pencils to color with for any level of creator!
Now what to color! I chose one of the Suzy's Watercolor panels from Simon Says Stamp. Now I know I said water color panel, but these are perfect for any coloring medium, plus with water color paper it is perfect to use color pencils with since it has a great tooth to pick up the pigment!
I made sure my pencils were sharp and bright and I was ready to get coloring. The panel I chose is from her Snowmen series that was recently released through Simon Says.
For each color I chose three shades, but there are times like green for example the color I use for my deepest shade is actually blue!
And for my reds, I like to use a dark purple! That for em is the beauty of color pencils, I can work them just like an alcohol marker, and use those same techniques for when I color.
Here are just a few of the products I used for this card...
