OMG, you guys this picture makes me so happy! The colors, the images, but most of all happy because I think have overcome my fear of coloring with pencils, and that's what excites me the most!


CARD DETAILS

If you all have been following my coloring on Instagram for Kathy Racoosin's Daily Marker Challenge you would have seen some sneak peeks of the cupcake card as I posted a speed coloring video of the process. I had so much fun practicing and was loving the results that I had to make some more.

So here is the cupcake yumminess card that started my new love of pencils, and by the way, I used Prismacolor Pencils for all my cards today. For this card, I stamped out the cupcake and the cherries from the PIECE OF CAKE stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black Ink and a stamping Block for quick stamping.  To color the images in I began by laying down the darkest color first and then the white highlight area then layered on a lighter color to blend out the two. I then repeated the steps to add more pigment. Once there is enough wax left behind from the pencils the wax begins to blend quite nicely with a little more pressure. I used medium pressure for the first layers and then would end with harder pressure. I am by no means an expert and consider myself a beginner but I did like the result I achieved.

To make these images pop even further, I went back over all the black lines with a very sharp tip using the black Prismacolor pencil.

To finish off this card I stamped out the sentiment below from the ONE OF A KIND set and die cut it using the coordinating ONE OF A KIND Honey Cut set.

I couldn't resist using the cutest Bee's, from the HAPPY FALL Y'ALL set for my next card. Here again, I used Versafine Onyx Black ink and stamped out all the images using a stamping block and then again repeated the same coloring process as above starting with the darkest color and then ending with the lightest. I used the same principles as I would if I was using alcohol markers, the only thing that is different was laying down the white highlight first as I was working with Kraft paper instead of a white paper. To make these really pop once again I went back over the lines with a very sharpened black pencil.

Just to give you an idea of how long it took, each full-sized bodied bee took about 10 mins to color. So needless to say, this card took a couple of days and a few sessions to complete as I didn't have the time to do it all in one sitting. But just look at how cute it turned out!!!

For the sentiment, I used the Happy Beeday greeting from the HI HONEY stamp set and then used the HI HONEY Coordinating Honey Cuts to die cut them out.

For this last card, I pulled out the SHINE ON set, one of my favorite girlie Honey Bee Stamp sets. Again using the same techniques mentioned above. This time to make coloring quicker and because I had learned some things from the previous cards, I first laid down the white pencil highlight layer to all the areas I wanted to highlight and then added the other colors.

The Sparkle On sentiment comes from the SHINE ON set, and the "your birthday" comes from the WISH set.
