My Friend

Ohhhh I am in heaven, in heaven, these pencils (I forgot to mention they are PRISMACOLOR) are so beautiful to play with. Look at how vibrant they are on on Kraft card stock. Don't look at my stamping mistakes (I ran out of Kraft card stock and now I have to wait for more to be delivered. I do have more things stamped but I was unable to rest amp this so we are going to look at the beauty not the balance OK!!)

More stamps coming out of NBUS pile or I should say have been stamped and coloured and fussy cut and then put aside, wellllll then I saw  how Kelly coloured them with the Chameleon pencils, I fell in love with the look. I don't have their pencils but I sure have a million and one pencils these days.
I just picked random colours and went rainbow for the front and yellow/orange for the back ones.
I may end up going over the black lines again though it is only really obvious here in this close up.

There is no need to adjust the photo at all, the colours are this vibrant on the kraft. I have always seen other peoples colouring on kraft and wondered if they put down white first...... no they don't the colour just goes down perfectly and each is soft and blends into the other. I didnt use any baby oil at all just pencil to pencil.

I cant wait to use this stamp more, its perfect and also more pencil, my copics are getting jealous now they will have to share custody of me. Goodness when I go away now I will need to double pack and of course now the next quest - what is the best paper to colour in on that is also white enough for the front of the cards.

Oh Aileen, I'm so glad you gave this challenge a try, your card is gorgeous. If you permit me a bit of advice.....when I color with pencils, most time I go over the lines of the image too so, I just leave my stamp on the MISTI, color my image and then, place it again on the MISTI, ink up my image again and stamp it over the colored one, it works perfectly every time, I did that with my Zinnia card.
I need to use my pencils more too, they blend beautifully on Kraft paper, I think they blend better than on any other color of card stock.
Beautiful card, my friend.
Hugs,
Maria.
