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!

I love this card! The colors you chose for the background are beautiful.
It was great to see how you blended the background and stamp image.

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.

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.

SO cute!!! I was wondering if I missed the Season's Givings winner?

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.

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.

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
