Hello everyone! Betsy here today bringing you another one of the awesome designs just released in the Springish Fiesta Release. This week I’m using the Count Me In Digital Stamp Set.
I really wanted to color this image with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils. I love how they look on Kraft card stock. I composed my image and sentiment in the computer and printed it out onto Neenah Desert Storm card stock. I printed it on the upper half of the sheet so I could use the other half for my A2 size card base.
I also die cut a white panel and embossed it with a lattice embossing folder. Now I was ready for the coloring…my favorite part!
I started by Google Imaging Spring Floral Color Palettes and found one I really liked. Then I went to the colored pencils and chose the lightest shade of each of the colors. I lightly colored the image so I knew where I was going with it. Then I chose a mid-tone and dark tone of each of the light tones. I started laying in color eventually pressing harder with the pencils.
I was really liking this palette against the Kraft color. I used the following color #’s: 117, 118, 217, 170, 168, 173, 145, 110, 246, 113, 109, 108, 119, 134, 133, 129, 128, 125 and white. Once I was done with the coloring I fussy cut the image.
I adhered the embossed panel to my card base and with liquid glue I adhered my colored image to the card. I liked how the colors of the design played off the white. For a tiny bit of embellishment I added some white gel dots to the centers of the flowers and I colored some of the dots on the embossed piece with a Copic Marker #Y28. And that finished my project for today!
This was a beautiful set to create with and has lots of possibilities. All of the sets in the new release – Springish Fiesta are now ready for purchase. Grab yours and start creating!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. We hope this new release inspires you!
