Hey Friends! It’s EK, and last week I discovered how gorgeous coloring on Soft Finish Cardstock is with colored pencils, so today I thought I would play around with some stamps that are simply meant to be colored with this medium. I can not be more impressed with how stunning Charlene’s stamps look colored in with my pencils.
Step One: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches. Stamp the sweet gal from the Make a Wish stamp set into the center of the paper. Stamp the image again onto some masking paper (I used post-it note paper). Trim out the image on the masking paper and add it to the stamped image
Step Two: With the making paper in place, stamp other images from the stamp set over the sweet gal multiple times.
Here is what the cardstock looks like with the masking paper still in place.
Here is what the image looks like after the masking paper is lifited.
Step Three: Color in the image with your colored pencils.
Step Four: Trim a piece of True Green Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 and added it to an A2 cardframe with some 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive.
Step Five: Die cut the focal image with one of the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die sets and adhere it to the True Green Soft Finish Cardstock.
What do you think of this medium on Soft Finish Cardstock? Have you experiment with colored pencils on your projects? Let us know in the comments below. Until then, happy crafting!
