I am here with the Simon Says Stamp August 2018 Card Kit! I am absolutely in love with the images in this this kit! ...and when you loose power in your house, the medium of choice becomes color pencils! YAY!
While I had a moment running around the house thinking how I was going to get everything done... I got to play with my favorite medium! - now I have many, and I mean MANY pencil sets, from Crayola to Prismacolor and everything in between!
My first card shown was very much inspired by Yana Smakula... Now I was not as ambitious as she with stamping the flower image twice, but when I saw her color this image, I new my sets had to be pulled out! The above image was colored with my Marco Renoir Fine Art Set. When I color my images the process is very similar to alcohol markers. I start with my darkest and work my way to where I want my lightest to be.
My second card was very much clean and simple! I just used a very pal soft sky colored ink and stamped my image and added a couple banners using the pattern paper from the kit!
For the final card I am showing today, I used the background stamp with a pale ink to just add texture... I cut my panel using my Penny Black Antique Frame dies for an uneven edge and placed a piece of the pattern paper behind to add a pop of color! For this image I pulled out my Lyra Rembrant Polycolor pencils. Added a double bow from the twine included in the kit.
