Disclaimer2: I used my scanner for the photos and I'm just now noticing the glass surface needs to be clean.
Disclaimer3: Pardon the quality of the stamped image...my printer is starting to give me trouble and I used a ultra fine sharpie to fill in where it would skip (it doesn't do it consistently but I'm not going to print 1000 copies hoping to get a good image eventually). Someday, I'd like to get a new printer/scanner combo (my printer is so old that I'm starting to have a hard time finding replacement cartridges) but I just found out today that I'm not going to be working summer school (budget cuts) so there won't be extra money this summer this after. :(
**********As you can see...I don't have to use fancy colored pencils. I have some, and I would love to have the entire color collection on a particular brand (probably prisma) but I can achieve what I need with what I've got. I have pictured here a Crayola pink, Pentech pink, an unknown brand of pink and another unknown red. I also have Rose Art brand colored pencils (I just didn't pull one out of my bag for this photo). I chose my colors by picking out several colors that are similar (think "Monochromatic"). The three pinks happen to look the same when I did a tiny test swatch so I only used one pink pencil and the red for my coloring below.
I wanted the ribbon to look like a satin ribbon and I know that the lightest part of the bow is near the highest point on the bow. I lightly colored up to that point.
Next, I colored the outer edges and the part next to the knot another layer of pink, pressing a little harder. As you can see, I didn't go all the way to the edge of pink/white border.
Then I used my red pencil to color the inside of the ribbon and the crease lines near the knot and the tie ends under the knot.
Now I'm ready to color the heart. This time I used the red to lightly outline where I wanted the shiny spot to be so I'd know where to stop.
And colored it lightly with the red pencil. There isn't a big difference between the red and the pink yet.
Then I colored a little bit more, but didn't go all the way to the red/white edge again.
Since I did not want a stark white "shiny" spot (to me that is for things that have a high gloss finish like hard plastic and I wanted this to look like a soft pillow), I took my pink pencil and lightly colored over the white area so that it blended in.
