Holiday Card Series 2019 – Day 15 – Colored Pencil Coloring

Hello, all! Today is Day 15 of the Holiday Card Series, and for today’s card I wanted to do a it of coloring with colored pencils. I used the Pine and Posy stamp set from Mama Elephant for the coloring, and paired it with the Big Angle Background from Ink Blot.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I first stamped the large image from the Pine and Posy stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink. I also created a mask for the image using Masking Magic paper and cutting it out using the coordinating dies.

After applying the mask, I ink blended Pine Needles and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks above the stamped image. Once completely dry I stamped and heat embossed with Big Angle Background stamp above the stamped foliage image.

After removing the masking paper, I colored the image using Polychromos colored pencils.

To finish off the card, I stamped a greeting using the Tiny Word Christmas stamp set from Simon, and stacked 4 layers of cardstock cut using the Merry die set from CZ Design.

Thanks for tuning in today! I’ll be back Friday morning with Day 16. :)

    Love it!! I have to laugh though. When you say “very simple coloring,” I watch and think, I could never do that! I just have to bite the bullet and give it a try! My pencils have just sat there begging to be used. Have a happy day and stay safe here in Utah! :)
