Posts Tagged ‘Prismacolor Pencils’

The Sketch Challenge (SC697), is so clean & simple..basically just a slash coming in from the lower side. So for that slash, I have a partial pencil. I did flip the sketch & lay it horizontally & somehow the downward slash became an upward one. Oh well. 

This is definitely one of, if not THE simplist cards I’ve ever made. A lot of open white space tends to make me nervous.  This Pencil image is technically, supposed to go on the back of the card, but I couldn’t get this idea out of my head to put it on the front. To me, it looks made to go w/ the Dropping a Line, greeting. 

To make it, I die cut the white panel, then stamped the greeting & part of the pencil then colored them. I added some coloring under the greeting to make it slightly dimensional looking. Then I embossed the left side w/ part of an embossing folder. Lucky for me I had the pencil border folder & even luckier, I could find it! After embossing, I lightly rubbed a turquoise Prismacolor pencil over the raised lines.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Congrats to Connie, the newest Featured Stamper (FS587) on Splitcoast! She has such a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I liked the layout & shape of her main panel but I used different images, different colors & made mine a Thank You card. I also used the colors from Tuesday’s Color Challenge (CC685).

To make my card, I die cut the vellum centerpiece then stamped the greeting w/ black Stazon. The flower scroll was stamped using Brilliance moonlight white & a little pink added to back side w/ a Prismacolor pencil. I used a white pencil on the back side to add the highlights to the greeting. It’s attached to a dot embossed bg that I used a white marker to highlight the dots & edge it. The pink bg was embossed w/ a corner folder after die cutting.

Here’s a look at the inside.

I made this for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club May Christmas Challenge! I’ve been having so much fun being a part of the challenge this year & the bonus is I’ll have a bunch of Christmas cards finished in plenty of time for Christmas this year. It’s a lot of fun & I hope you’ll head on over & join us. You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how.

For my CAS Christmas card, I put a piece of sand colored card stock into my Misti then stamped the image. The holly & greeting are all one image, so it’s easy to use. First I colored the holly w/ Copics then did a Prismacolor pencil overlay & added some white inside the lines above & below the greeting. Here’s where the Misti is invaluable..lines tend to disappear when you use Prismas, so I stamped it again to bring them back. I masked the holly greeting & stamped the snowflakes w/ white pigment ink & heat set to dry. A few snowflakes were punched out of white glitter paper to add some sparkle.

Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
