Technique of the Week: White Pencil Shading

Love this technique that I found at Jennifer McGuire's blog. This is a super simple technique that you can do by stamping with white pigment ink (I used Hero Arts White Unicorn ink, and we have this in stock at Art 'n Soul, with more on the way!). You also need a white Prismacolor pencil, and we have these in stock too.

This works best with dark cardstock, but you could use a dark pink and make a nice Mother's Day card. It could also be used for a Birthday, or just "Thinking of You."

For this card I used one of the new Magenta collection stamps Iceland Poppy 14.650.P, and the sentiment is also from Magenta, With Sympathy 07.928.I.

Full instructions for this card, and a few more photos can be found in our weekly newsletter, and also at Dianne's blog "Backporch". You can link to the post here.

If you don't get our weekly newsletter, you can sign up at the shop. If you are not local and wish to get it, you can email us your name and ask to be added to the mailing list. We try to do a new Technique of the Week each week, and we put in lots of other things, such as happenings in the store, and also classes. We won't spam you! We send out our email newsletter each Friday.

You can link to our archived newsletters at the right top of this post, and you can also link to our store calendar and other information.

Come in and see us, we have just gotten in lots of things from Memory Box, Penny Black and Magenta. You know how fast these things go out, so hurry in! All of the new Magenta Nuance colors sold out on the first day. We still have the sets of 15 colors, and you can be sure to get the 5 new colors by ordering them on a paid pink sheet. This is the best way to ensure you get them with the next shipment, which will be soon.

Oh! and Pam opened up a couple of spots in her Nuance'd Die Cuts class, both for this Saturday the 30th and for Wednesday evening, May 4th. Call or come in to sign up, you will be glad you did! You do not have to already own Nuance to take this class, so if you have been wanting to try it out, this is your chance! Here's an example of a card you will make in this class.

Using Nuance, a Magenta stamp and Memory Box die...we think it's stunning!
