Pencil shaded background

Remember when we used to use a pencil to emboss the image of a coin on paper?
What fun that was ?!
Well, today, I have applied the same technique to create this awesome background.

I rubbed my 2B pencil over a sheet of paper with a swirls rubber stamp underneath.
The effect is gorgeous, as you can see!!
I then added the stamped sentiment and this fun stamped armchair for a pop of colour!

Love the way it has turned out!!!
Do try it!!
