Birthday Wishes from Seniorita Bella!

I have seen a lot of cards using kraft cardstock, but had never tried it.  Most I have seen were using colored pencils.  I had recently purchased some Polychromo Pencils, so decided to give it a try.

Here is what I came up with…

I just love this image from Stamping Bella.  I had colored her up using my Copics, but never turned the image into a card.

I have used Gamsol with my colored pencils before, but decided to try the blending with just the colored pencils.  I was happy with the way it turned out.

After coloring the image, I used the sentiment “MWAHHHHHHH!” that came with the stamp, but needed another sentiment for the top of the card.  I was sending this to one of my “older” brothers for his birthday.  I thought the Big Birthday Wishes “happy birthday” from Simon Says Stamp was the perfect one.  The font was perfect for this card!

I wanted the image to be my focal point, so I didn’t add any other items to the front of the card.  I layered the kraft cardstock on some black cardstock to set it off from the white card base.

I was happy with the way this turned out…and will be using my Polychromo Pencils again.
