I Love You(calyptus)

Hello!
Today I have a cute valentine to share with a beautiful ink blended background and images colored with colored pencils.  I love the soft colors the pencils gave me for these images. I created this card as a valentine but I think the colors lend themselves to be used year round.

I colored the green scalloped circle with ink as well to create custom colored cardstock to match my images.  When you don't have a matching color cardstock in your stash this is an easy way to create something that matches perfectly!

How cute is that little koala, I think the softness of the colored pencil blended with gamsol really is perfect for him. There is still some texture to the image but it has a nice blended smoothness as well.

Check out my tutorial video showing just how I colored and created this card.  You can watch it below or HERE on my YouTube channel as well.


Thanks for stopping by today!

  2. I love your card. The colors are beautiful. I love the ombre background and that die plate. I just added this to my list of MUST HAVES.. The koala is darling and you make me want to break out the prisma pencils again. I love this and so inspirational.. Thank you so much. Hugs.

  5. Such a cute card! I've never tried the gamsol, but I like how it smoothed out the colored pencil. Thanks for sharing the video on how you colored the koala.

    1. I contacted them directly so there was not a blog post dedicated to winners. I have issues with people not claiming prizes when that is the case so I have stopped doing blog posts to announce winners.

  7. Hi Chari! I am so enjoying your videos! I am wondering what type of paper are you using to work on under your cards? I’ve noticed you blend watercolours on it.

    1. Sorry for the late reply! My blogger has stopped sending me notifications when I get comments! The mat I work on when blending or watercoloring is the Tonic Easy Clean Mat. Much like the brown Tim Holtz non-stick mat but I like that this one is white so I can see colors better. Lawn Fawn also sells a similar one from WOW embossing on their website. https://www.lawnfawn.com/products/wow-premium-embossing-craft-mat
