Art Postcard - Folk Houses

Decided to play with my Carbothello Pastel Pencils today and doodled this little postcard.  I've not had chance to really test them out since I bought them, and I'm very impressed - the same pigmentation as Pan Pastels, but in a  pencil.  I sketched and coloured the folk art scene with the pastels, then once I'd finished with them, I added some stamping with Archival ink, and some stenciling with white acrylic paint.  I sprayed fixative onto it, then doodled over everything with black and white pens.


  1. This is gorgeous Rachel!!! I can see these pencils and you are a match made in heaven:)

  2. Wow Rach that is awesome. Love the colors you used.

  3. ooOOOooo EYE CANDY!! I so needed this arty fix today Rach!! I'm diggin' everything you have been doing. Now, if only I could come over and play next to ya....I do share my red crayon btw.
    Peace and Love
