Playing with my colours again!

A few months ago I started making colour charts in a little sketch book for all my ink pads… Here is the link. Then I did something similar with my Promarkers in a journal … Again here is the link… So now I have started on some of my other mediums…

First up my Inktense pencils. I coloured little swatches in and washed them with water, then punched out butterflies and adhered them into the book with the names and codes next to them. I then stamped a Swallowtail and some of the bricks Darcy designed and coloured and painted them in using the Inktense for the “cover” page.

Next I moved onto the Spectrum Noir Pencils which I got in the 3 for 2 offer at Hobbycraft fairly recently. I decided for these to stamp a little banner from Banner Blast colour it in, add the pencil colour number, and then punch out with the small banner punch then adhere into the book. But then I also created a little theme for each collection of colours using the fabulous stamps Darcy has created! The fabulous Steampunk snail, an Industrial Butterfly and cogs and the trailing heart vines (my favourite and possibly most used stamp Darcy has created so far… Although the new heart flower is coming up as a close second!).

It’s such a good way to test out the mediums and also have a play with a pretty result at the end… And a nice way to look at the colours so you know what the end result may be when you put them to use.

Happy crafting!
