Dear Friend

My card today is in honor of this weeks featured stamper at Splitcoast Stampers.  Chitra Nair has lots of lovely well colored cards in her gallery.  I saw that she likes Mo Manning images and occasionally colors her images with colored pencil so that's the way I went with this card.  I used a kraft card stock that has a lot of "tooth".  I think I got it from Hero Arts.  It sort of feels like coloring on a paper bag.  It's very hard for me to photograph color pencil under my light as the light just bounces off the pencil wax.  I tried to tip my card out of the glare a little to get a more truer color.

card size:   5 1/2"  x  5 1/2" square

Stamps:   Penny Black- Missing You(Mo Manning set),  My Favorite Things- Spring Tulips(words),  Hero Arts- Stamp & Cut Butterfly(tiny butterfly)

Specialty Paper:   Lawn Fawn- Let's Polka Mon Amie 6x6

Ink/Color:   Archival Jet Black,  Berol Prisma Color Pencils,  VersaMark Ink,  Hero Arts- White Embossing Powder

Dies:   Memory Box- Woodland Snail

  1. OOH! Love this! Your coloring is fabulous and using the Kraft paper really makes it stand out. Plus colored pencils are my favorite way to liven things up. nise
