Coloring Images on Dark Cardstock with Kelly Latevola

Hello Crafters! 

It's Kelly here and I hope you're doing well! 
We made it to Friday, whoo hoo! 
We'll have some real excited stuff for you later today! 

I have a fun technique for you today using colored pencils. Ready to go?


I stamped the Heartfelt Thanks floral image multiple times on navy cardstock to create a very subtle tone on tone background. Then I stamped it again on a separate piece of navy to use as a basis for my no-line coloring. 


In order to make the colors as bright and as blended as possible I lay down a layer of white first on the petal. Then moving from my lightest color to my darkest color and back again I add shadows and depth to each petal. It's so cool to see how this white blob turns into this detailed petal. 


After all the coloring was done I die cut the floral image out and popped it up on foam for some real dimension. I paired it with some clear rhinestones and a white heat embossed sentiment to finish it off. 

You can see the card and the coloring in the video below. 


Thank you so much for joining me. I hope you'll give this technique a try soon!
