Coloring With Colored Pencils

I know I almost always color my stamp images with markers, but I recently fell in love again with colored pencils when hubster bought me this 120 Caran D’ache Pablo Colored pencils a while back.



I’m still learning the ropes to color using them, because although you can still have that gradient-looking colors as you would with markers it’s still pretty different. But I am surprised at how easy it is to color dark to light just using ONE colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. That means I have 120 NEW COLORS! :D

So anyway, here’s my first ever card made using these badboys ;)


Stamp: Gwen In Bloom from Some Odd Girl
Digital kit: Miss Priss by Designs by Megan Turnidge
Ink: Memento
Coloring: Caran D’Ache Pablo Colored Pencils
Dies: Spellbinders, Taylored Expressions and Cheery Lynn
Cotton string and buttons
