SO FAST & EASY! Colored Pencils Over Stenciled Ink Blending

Hello, all! Over the weekend, I shared a new mail art envelope over at Instagram. I had so much fun creating that envelope with Simon’s Peony Bouquet stencil, I wanted to create a card to go inside the envelope. So here we go!

(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 started out with some white cardstock cut to 3.5″ x 5.5″. I used the Peony Bouquet stencil to ink blend the design onto the cardstock. I only used three Distress Ink colors: Scattered Straw, Tattered Rose, and Shabby Shutters.

Then I went in and added very light layers of colored pencils. I loved how this made it look like I colored the entire area with the pencil, but the base layer was ink. Such a time saver!

I finished off the card by stamping a greeting in Acorn Versafine Clair ink from the Miss You Missy stamp set from CZ Design.

Thanks for stopping by today!
