Trying a new-to-me colouring technique using just black and white coloured pencils and OMS. I have used prisma pencils and OMS for a coloured picture but I really love this black and white look. You need to have a fairly detailed stamp like this one. Colour the shaded parts black and blend and then the white parts and blend. I found that blending the white towards the black keeps the white clean. There is a thread in the forums started by Cass2sons that has a lot of good ideas. I drew a frame around the flower then masked and sponged the inside with walnut stain from TH. and the outside with a combo of walnut and soot. A fine china crackle from Hero Arts is lightly stamped inside the frame.

I was on the very edge of getting rid of this stamp when I saw what you had done with it. I'm going to keep it just to try this technique with it. I have never seen such a beautiful look with this stamp!
