Hello! Today I wanted to write a quick post to share a technique I am really digging!
Check this out!
I am swooning over how colored pencils look on dark card stock! I’ve pretty much stamped every large floral image I have to try this out. This floral image is from Ink Blot Shop’s Comfort and Hugs.
This is Altenew’s Extra Special.
This is Simon Says Stamp’s Floral Bliss.
I haven’t made a card out of the last image yet, but I will! All of these images were stamped in Versamark ink and embossed in gold. I colored them with Prismacolor pencils.
I had no idea that you could blend colors with colored pencils. And, it’s so easy! Seriously, no coloring skills needed! I’m tempted to get more stamps that I can repeat this technique with. I think next time I’ll use Concord and 9th’s Many Mandalas!
Here is a card I made with a similar technique.
The flowers on this stamp image from Concord and 9th are so small, I decided to use gel pens. In this case I used metallic and glitter pens. It’s so gorgeous in person!
Sorry for the short post, but I had to share this!
Thanks for stopping by!
