Colored Pencils on Kraft Cardstock + Class GIVEAWAY!

Hello, all! For today’s card, I wanted to color with colored pencils on kraft cardstock. I love the looks of bright pencil on a neutral surface!

The cute images used on this card are from Art Impressions’ Doggy Kisses stamp set. There are lots of “get well” and “feel better” images and greetings in this stamp set. So if you’re a dog lover (or know dog lovers!) this is the perfect stamp set for your stash.

I stamped the images in Simon Says Stamp Black ink and then colored them using Prismacolor colored pencils.

Not long ago, I showed my colored pencils in a video and many of you asked how I got my pencils so sharp. I’ve been using this pencil sharpener and it’s amazing! I bought it year ago and “lost it” when I renovate my craft room over a year ago. Just recently, I found the pencil sharpener and sharpened all of my pencils. I love having them so sharp!

I finished off the card by blending on white pigment ink over the Tim Holtz Stars stencil.

I hope you enjoy today’s card! Thanks for stopping by!
