For today’s STAEDTLER card I used some green Soft Pastel Chalks on watercolour paper:
I don’t know what made me try it but I thought the pastels would blend with water and thankfully it worked out!!
Once all of the colours blended together I let it dry and then treated it like patterned paper.
I had the crazy idea to colour the balloons in sepia tones to keep the card monochromatic. It’s fun shading with just one colour family – it give you the freedom to think about the light and shadow. (I used a combo of Copics and pastel chalk pencils)
