Pencil Coloured Gerberas

Today I’m using one of the fabulous floral stamps that are currently available for pre-order with Sunshine & Bee Designs next release. Here I have used the gorgeous floral bloom and coloured all the gerberas in with my PolyChromos pencils. I won’t lie it took a while to colour, but I popped something on Prime and passed the time quite happily colouring it in. 

This is part of the next release from Sunshine & Bee Designs and is part of a Kickstarter campaign to get this release made. To find out more, check out the link at the end of the post.

Creating the no-line Pencil coloured gerberas

To start off, I need to create a non-line pencil colour stamped image. The best way to do this is to use embossing ink. A piece of Peony Hero Hues Hero Arts cardstock was placed inside my MISTI and the stamp positioned over the top. 

The stamp was inked up with WOW! Clear Ultra Slow drying embossing ink and stamped twice. This will give you a nice clear watermark stamped image to colour in. Before you start to colour the flowers in, add WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder over the sentiment and heat set.  

Adding the colour

For the colouring, I’ve used my PolyChromos pencils from Faber Castell. To colour these flowers in, I started off with my lightest colour, blocking of the light colour within the petal. I then worked from light to dark, adding the darker colours towards the base of the petals or where a petal over lapped creating a shadow.

Colours used:

  • Light Flesh 132
  • Rose Carmine  124
  • Pink Carmine 127
  • Dark red 225
  • Magenta 133

For smooth blending add the colour lightly, and then go back between the colours, using the lighter colour to blend it.  Next, to colour the inners of the flowers, I used a yellow along with the medium pink from the petals and a brown to create shading. With this blending, I used a circular motion to get a slightly different texture to the inners of the flowers. 

Colours used:

  • Dark Chrome Yellow 109
  • Rose Carmine  124
  • Burnt Carmine 193
  • Walnut Brown 177

Once all the colouring was complete, the panel was trimmed down and foam mounted onto a white cardbase.
