Loving Mom with color pencils

Loving Mom colored card is a project that I made using one of my favorites stamp sets and colored with a mix of color pencils and ink. First take a look at my card that then I will share with you my tips:

I started worked on this card by stamp the big lili flower with a light ink and masking technique over a whisper white layer of cardstock. I used the Memento Desert Sand ink and I first stamped the flower of the center and then the laterals. The last one was the small. I used the masking technique to keep the individual design of each flower and don't overlap the petals and make the coloring process more interesting.

I colored with different tones of blue and violet, some yellows, green and brown of Prismacolor Premier Color Pencils, this blend perfect and produce very brilliant tones. When I was totally satisfied with the coloring, I covered again the flowers with the masking pieces that I created at the initial step and sponged the lower part with Distress Ink Hickory Smoke.

On top, I just stamped one of the sentiments included on the stamp set Loving Mom using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and to finalize the card I resized the layer and pasted over an Elegant Eggplant card base. To embellish it I added some sequins from the Kindness Medley Sequins Collection from Kennedy Grace.

I hope my project inspires you to combine your inks with color pencils!

See you soon!
