I think it’s a bit apparent I have been loving my colored pencils lately. Maybe everyone does this, but I tend to favor one coloring medium for awhile and then will move onto another and slowly make my way back around through them all again. I wanted to use the “Just Poppin’ By” stamp set from Two Paper Divas again this week and do a bit of no line coloring with my colored pencils. When I first seen the stamp set, this was the scene I envisioned making and I finally had the time to break out my pencils, sit down, and color in the entire scene. This medium and technique do take a bit of time, but there are sometimes when that coloring time is exactly what I need! Watch the video below for the full tutorial on this card!!
I started this card with a 4″ x 4″ square of white card stock. Using my Memento Dye Ink in the color of “Sand” I stamped out my scene. Any very light dye ink will do here. I first stamped the toast in the set in the center of the panel and then two pieces of toast that appeared to be popping out and up into the air.
With my scene stamped I brought out my colored pencils and OMS along with blending stumps and colored in my scene. Watch the video above for the full details. I wanted the scene to appear as if not only the pieces of toast were in the air but also the toaster had popped up off the counter too, so my horizon line is well under the toaster.
I used the “Just Poppin’ By To Say…” sentiment included in the stamp set and stamped it into the top left hand corner with black dye ink and my MISTI. I also pulled out the “Banners #3” stamp set and stamped “Enjoy You Day” sentiment on the inside of an 4.25″ X 4.25″ white card base. Using double sided adhesive and white fun foam I popped up the colored panel onto the front of the card base to finish off the card.
There are times when I see a stamp set and know exactly what I want to do with it, this was one of those times. And sometimes it works out and others the card comes out completely different than envisioned. I couldn’t be happier that this scene actually translated so well from my head to paper! I really think the no line coloring technique was such a great choice to really bring everything to life. I know that no line coloring can be a bit intimidating, but just practicing and taking your time makes all the difference!
