Coloring in B&W with Hints of Sepia

Tuesday, April 15, 2014



Hello lovelies!

Here's another inspirational post for Saturated Canary...



A simple card with a stamped image colored in b&w/sepia tones.

All papers used here are Melissa Frances and the rest are embellishments that I found in my stash (cheese cloth, trims, seam binding, paper flowers, rhinestones). The paper wreath is a die by Memory Box and I ran a machine stitching and then did some distressing to the edges to add some depth.




This time I am featuring the lovely *Sweet Oklahoma* stamp, which I colored with Prismacolor Pencils.

And here's a little disclaimer about it so to avoid any confusion: the image was meant to be in sepia AND in person it does look brownish, but in the video and in the pics it looks more black and white. This is the first time that I color a sepia/b&w image using Prismacolors and honestly, I wasn't following any guides or color scheme. Still I like how it turned out and I will definitely be doing this again.



And below you will find a *speed-coloring* video on how I colored this image, so I hope that you find it useful.
