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!

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!

I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…

Birthday Tea Party

Hello everyone! It's Berina here today! I'm here to inspire you to create something with our beautiful Mood board for December. I love the beautiful festive colors.

I've been wanting to use the Vintage Tea Cups stamp set the moment I got it I love the tea cup stamp. As soon as I saw this moodboard, I was fixated on using that stamp set.

I stamped the border image from the stamp set using Memento London Fog on the top left and lower right. I stamped the kettle and the cup with the same ink. I used Copic markers to color the images. I used BG15, BG13, BG11 and BG000 for the teal colored part and C7, C3, C1 and 0 for the remaining. I decided to add some grounding for the kettle and cup with the grey color. I stamped the sentiment using Hero Arts black ink.
