coloring using the shadows – girl with umbrella and spectrum noir pencils

Hello everyone,
I am feeling much better now, and i could manage to sit and craft away a nice card. Lately i have been studying how to color good with colored pencils. My first tryouts where just with normal black pencil, and i learned a cool technique, and that is using the white of the paper, and just color in the shadows.

I have demonstrated this one in my next video.  I can say that my coloring looks much better now. But i am not by far an expert yet. I have to keep practicing. What i usually do is stamp the same image 5 or six times and just color everyone until i get better.

I hope this is enough to get going and try out with your own stamps. Have fun and enjoy the video.
