Pencil shaded background

Remember when we used to use a pencil to emboss the image of a coin on paper? What fun that was !
Well, today, I have applied the same technique to create this awesome background for the
Friday mashup challenge.

I rubbed my 2B pencil over a sheet of paper with my Hero Arts swirls cling rubber stamp underneath.
The effect is gorgeous, as you can see!!
I then added the sentiment (from Hampton Art) and this fun armchair (from Lawn Fawn Dad's day stmap set and cushion from Papersmooches Vogue Abode stampset) for a pop of colour!

I made another card for the same challenge..
I stamped this image (cling stamp from Penny black) using smokey grey ink from Versafine. I then shsded some of the flowers with pencil and one with red Color pencil, to add pop!
I then cut up the image to create a collage, to add interest.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts

This is also my official post for  the Craft Adda Blog this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Have a great day!
