Color image with colored pencils.
Keep the lighter colors toward the edges of the image for a more dramatic effect. Start with the darker colors at the base or center of the image and work your way to the outside edge and lighter colors.
Your finished image should look something like this. Don't be afraid to press too hard when coloring with the pencils. The richer the color, the greater the contrast.
Using a white gel pen, accent image with dots, and lines.
Add image to card and embellish as desired.
