Treats on Tuesday with Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with a little pencil colouring on black mixed media card.
This card was made by taking black mixed media card and spraying it with Distress Oxide sprays, (mixed media card will stand up to the water based sprays better than regular black card stock). Once it was dry I stamped the bird image on the card and used pencils to colour the image.

The distress sprays give a great mottled effect on the black and adds so much visual texture at the edges, closer to the image I used some pencil colouring to soften the background.

I did not know that DOX sprays worked so well on black mixed media paper. Thanks for that tip! LOVE the mottled background ... it's beautiful. And so is your pencil colouring of the bird and branch. Amazing card Christine!

You make me want to get my black MM paper out, Christine. Your DOX sprays over the black MM paper added so much beautiful texture and a very natural nature look. Your stamped bird and branch are so beautifully colored with your colored pencils. Love your beautiful card with your Magenta products, my friend. Love and Hugs..Nancy
