Derwent Tinted Charcoal Pencils

If you haven’t worked with Derwent Tinted Charcoal pencils before, think of them like a graphite pencil with subtle tinted color. I typically use them for shading. I add them to Zentangle┬« drawings when I want a touch of color.

When using charcoal and graphite pencils, I prefer to use a paper stump or tortillon to blend and soften the color. You could also use a clean finger or cotton swab in a pinch.

Featured Cardstock

For the card front, I used Classic Linen White Pearl cardstock. Curious Metallic Eucalyptus and Rose Gold used for the sentiment die cut and Eucalyptus for the top and bottom edges.

When stamping on cardstock with pearl or metallic finishes I use Staz-On Pigment Ink. It stamps beautifully on non-porous and semi-porous surfaces and dries quickly, especially for pigment ink.
