I recently purchased some new stamps online and finally had the chance to use this Trouble in a Tutu stamp set from Clearly Besotted 🙂 They’re so cute right? The set has coordinating dies but I was not able to buy those yet but will definitely get them in my next haul.
I colored the images with Inktense pencils, using only pink and black. I used a very light stroke in coloring the areas that are supposed to be dark and let the highlights be in white. This card makes me smile really.
For my sentiment I white embossed them and added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh for some more fun.
I used a card sketch inspiration from CAS(E) this Sketch #187.
I also used a die from Mama Elephant to emboss the borders of the card base to add details. Just enough to put some texture on a plain card base.
I’m also entering this card to CASology Week #212, Fun.

Today I got these Staedtler colored pencils sharpened in preparation for some coloring. I bought some stamps recently and would be good if I used these pencils again for some practice.
I used this medium in the past but haven’t really explored how well they can be used in different papers like Kraft cardstock. I saw some cards with colored images using colored pencils and they looked amazing. I should see for myself how it goes and will share here when I’m done.
Here are my new crisped tips ready for use
I have a set of 24 which I think is enough to begin with the exploration.
I remember when I started card making, I used colored pencils and watercolor pencils to color digital images. That worked for me at the time but as I later get hold of other coloring materials like alcohol based markers, watercolor and lately distress ink pads, I seldom use these pencils as much as before which is a shame. I used to love them a lot and I want to use my supplies more rather than stowing them away. Good plan right? 🙂
Until then and I’ll share some of the colored stuff soon 🙂
