Check it out and join us in this month’s “Anything Goes” challenge. Our current monthly challenge can always be found in the menu bar, and runs from the 1st to last day of the month.
I created card with colored pencil coloring on kraft paper, some heat embossing and die cutting.
When I was thinking about creating my card I wanted to use this pretty Hero Arts Nasturtium stamp, use kraft and color with colored pencils. It’s been awhile since I colored with pencils and I just want to be doing that more often.
The first step was to stamp the image in each corner and heat emboss using copper embossing powder. You can find some copper embossing powder in the a2z Etsy store. I then used Prismacolor Pencils to color in the images. I used oranges, yellow, two greens, a couple reds. Then I watered down some liquid watercolors and covered my flowers and splattered it on the card. It was a bit bold so I just took a cloth and kind of dabbed it off a bit. That is one of those things that can be to much if you don’t do it right and that is why sometimes I hesitate doing it.
The sentiment was die cut and heat embossed with the same copper embossing powder. I then cut one more sentiment out of the kraft paper and glued it with the embossed one for some dimension.
