Colored Pencils on Colored Cardstock for Simple Cards

Hello crafty people! I have a really cool technique to share with you today for my monthly video. I'm still new around here, so I'll introduce myself again. My name is Katelyn and I just joined SBC not too long ago. This is my second individual project for this lovely community. Today, I wanted to explore a technique that is new to me. I have had this background stamp for ages and I haven't utilized it as much as I should. So, I wanted to make something that would let this stamp shine.

I decided to use the preview of the wood stamp as inspiration for my color choices. I decided to use four colors overall. I used a light pink, a wine color, white, and a medium brown tone. These are similar colors that are featured on the stamp block. To color the flowers, I started with the darker wine color in the center and creases and then used the light pink to blend it out. I think that having the pink cardstock background helps cover up any of the poor blending I may have done.

Once the background is fully colored, I trimmed down the excess paper around the image. I then cut a wine colored cardstock background piece. I'm using a base of 110 lb. cardstock for sturdiness and this is scored to be 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Once the wine and colored layers were glued together, I attached a small lace bow.

After my bow was in place, I started to work on the sentiment piece. This sentiment card is made using the same pink cardstock, but popped up on foam adhesive. I use Whimsy Stamps Sweetest Birthday stamp set to make a powerful sentiment. Plus, the script font is so adorable! I used Colorbox dark brown ink for both parts of the sentiment.

To complete this card I had to add a couple of enamel dots. These enamel dots are from Carta Bella's Metropolitan Girl collection. I hope you all enjoyed this fun technique! There are so many other possibilities for this technique. Thanks for stopping by!
