Just a Pup | Coloured Pencil on Craft Paper
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day.
Today's card is a touch different than what I normally do. Today I've stamped some images from one of my much older sets, way down at the bottom of my stash. But the real treat is the colouring. At least for me. I always forget how much I love the look of coloured pencil on craft paper. No matter how many times you use those pencils, they'll look different on the craft paper.
To begin, I stamped the dog and the dish on craft paper using CTMH Archival ink, I then masked them off and stamped the hydrant and the greeting.
I removed the masks and coloured the images with Prismacolor pencils. For each image there are about three shades, and then I used a white for the highlights.
If colouring on craft is not something you have ever done, I highly recommend it. While we all get a certain sense of satisfaction from colouring, watching the image come to life, there's a different feeling when it comes to the craft. The paper, being darker, lends a warmth to the finished image that I find I don't get when I use pencil crayons on white paper.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't all ready, please follow me over on the right sidebar so you don't miss any future posts. Toss me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
