Another image from the stack has made it to a card! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen the coloured image already, as I shared it when I coloured it last summer (that seems simultaneously ages ago and only yesterday, time is a funny old beast).
Stamping Bella Fairy House New Home Card
I actually coloured two versions of this image at the same time, using the same pencils. One version was blended using a solvent, the other was purely pencil. The version on my card is the one where I used Zest-It Pencil Blend* as a solvent to blend the pencil.

I love the soft storybook look you get with “No Line” colouring, especially when using coloured pencils.
Derwent ProColour Coloured Pencils
When I coloured this image last summer I was playing and testing a new set of pencils I had purchased: Derwent ProColour *. Being from the UK I do enjoy using homegrown products, and I have long enjoyed many of Derwent’s products. I wasn’t as enamoured with the Coloursoft pencils as I have been with my Faber-Castell Polychromos or Caran D’ache Luminance, but I was impressed with the ProColour pencils, and I very much enjoyed the colour palette. I found that they blend nicely with Zest-It Pencil Blend*.
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have enjoyed today’s post as much as I enjoyed creating it for you.
