Daffodils with Inner Glow

     This card was inspired by a challenge to use white colored pencil on kraft card stock. I tried stamping flowers with black ink; then using white colored pencil over it as was recommended for the challenge. This was NOT working for me. I just couldn't get a product that I was happy with. I decided to try something a little different. I first colored with white colored pencil then colored over top of that.

     I did not use a heavy hand with the coloring, leaving some of the white peek through.

A Short Daffodil Coloring Tutorial

1. Loosely color all areas with white.
2. Add Yellow to flowers and lightest green to leaves.
 3. Use lightest brown to shade edges and other places indicated by the lines on the stamp.
 4. Add medium brown to area where petals originate.
 5. Add dark brown to deepest areas of flower.
 5. Use darker greens to add shading to the leaves.
