Colored Pencil Tinting . Embroider the design as desired. Tinting with colored pencil is similar to working with crayons. The result is much softer and it works well for blending color. The color is less colorfast than other tinting methods, so reserve this technique for embroidered items that won't be washed.
For a much lighter effect, you can mix a small amount of soft pastel with baby powder and apply it with cotton balls. This technique is usually used for gradient backgrounds. Lastly, enjoy your work! You can keep it in your portfolio folder or hang it on your wall. There are still a lot of ways to use coloring materials in order to give life to your drawings. Just don't be afraid to explore.
