Hero Arts Nasturtium – Colored Pencils on Kraft

Hello! It’s September already, cruising along in 2019. For September the theme over at a2z Scrapbooking is Anything Goes.

I created card with colored pencil coloring on kraft paper, some heat embossing and die cutting.

Hero Florals Nasturtium

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.
