PE: ColourQ Courtier!!
…with color pencils.
Hello! (I am a statement late with my greeting for obvious reasons..)
Tried coloring on Kraft cardstock for the first time – and loved it! I used my Faber Castell Polychromos color pencils, and Prismacolor white pencil (don’t ask me why I didn’t pick the white from Polychromos – I don’t know, I just picked it!). And here’s the result –
I first heat embossed the flower from Ellen Hutson Mondo Magnolia in white and then colored the image using my color pencils. I must say, the difference in the pencils (probably what they’re made of) gave me a surprise, albeit a pleasant one – the white sort of pulled and pushed the color from the other – I love the way it looks in real life! 🙂
Once done, I waited a day before making the background, just because I wasn’t getting any idea to proceed. I got this idea the next day. I made the background panel by first stamping the stripes from WPlus9 Country Charm in Hero Arts Soft Pool and then coloring it using Paper Trey Ink Tropical Teal. I adhered both the panels at an angle on the card base, applying the adhesive only to the sides, such that the loose corner can be lifted. Unfortunately, the kraft cardstock was too hard to bend, but I was able to bend the striped panel nicely. 🙂
Finally came the sentiment from Paper Smooches Happy birthday. I die cut it twice, adhering both the pieces together, and then directly adhering it to the card – I didn’t want too much dimension on the card. I then added a few clear rhinestones as embellishment.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
