Unity Friends with Flair
For today, I decided to try my hand at a single layer card on Kraft cardstock using colored pencils. I must admit I had to dust the colored pencils off a bit, they have not been used in a while. Copic markers have become my coloring medium of choice for a while, but I have seen some cards with the colored pencils on Kraft and I really liked it so I thought I would give it a go (plus the pencils do not bleed to the inside like Copics would and the bleeding does not make for a good single layer card). I used two Unity sets today, the sentiment is from Quiet Essence and the flowers are from Best Wishes and Blooms.
I stamped the sentiment in black ink and then covered with paper tape (which I found at the Dollar Tree). It makes for a quick and easily removable mask or I have even used it to make my own customized Washi tape. I stamped and colored the flowers. I added some white dots to fill in space and voila, a single layered card. I will try this again soon, I really liked the outcome. Thanks for stopping by today and I hope Spring is upon you.
