Hi there! It's Tobi here with a little tutorial about using chalk pencils to shade your coloured images. It was this past summer when I was hanging out with some TSG girls at Jessica's house when I asked Kim Teasdale how she gets "that special sump'n sump'n" on her cards and it was at that moment that she changed my life. I'm not exaggerating, I will, from now on, always use either chalk pencils or charcoal pencils to add shading to my colouring..
Pastel Chalk pencils (or soft charcoal pencils) will work on top of any medium so long as it's completely dry. Kim colours with Tombow watercolour markers and I use Distress Markers or Copics, and the pencils are a LAST STEP once you've coloured your image.
Here's a before-and-after of a cute Hallowe'en image. The "before" is JUST coloured with Copics and the "after" was after I finished adding shading with the chalk pencils.
And here's a little video I put together just for you!! I have wanted to do this video for a while and this Wednesday Trends feature was the perfect push to get it done!
