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.
A close up of the colored image…
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.
Thanks for stopping by!
