Here is another of my cards. This time, I decided to break my graphite tradition and give this one a fresh feel with ink and colored pencil. I was somewhat new to ink at the time…but I had fun using it for this drawing. Back then I probably didn’t realize that I would come to almost favor ink over graphite. My mom is very talented at calligraphy, so the lines written in the banners above and below the angel were done by her. Isn’t she great at it?
It seems I forgot to sign and date this drawing, but I know it was ’06 because all my other Christmas drawings are dated.
-Done in ink, and then colored pencil for color.
-I used parchment paper for this one, as I wanted the antique look, and I also wanted the paper to work well for Mom’s calligraphy. As you can see, the paper is somewhat transparent, especially when mounted on black paper. I rather liked that quality though.
Thanks for looking. 🙂
