Adding White Pen Details on Colored Pencil

 

Adding White Pen Details on Colored Pencil

When coloring on Desert Storm or any colored cardstock, white pencil definitely shows up nicely. But add some white PEN to it and watch the magic happen! In today’s video I’ll show you how to make that cute fuzzy hat and make a so-so image sparkle with texture! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I bought the cling set (in red rubber) at TGF – there’s also a clear set over at SSS, and it’s got slightly different stamps in it, and I think the characters are a different size. Both are linked in the supply list. ūüôā (Pssst smaller stamps can be colored a little faster!)

Love Train: 3-color Pencil Card

 

Love Train: 3-color Pencil Card

I saw this little train set from Taylored Expressions and right away, wanted to color it with pencils. Since my technique is time consuming, backgrounds are challenging – but sweet little images are perfect for it! And I’m also showing how to make a pop-up sentiment…hope you enjoy the process! Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The outside of the card is a simple one – two train cars, rolling down the track. Colors used: Spanish Orange, Pale Vermillion, Scarlet Lake.Open, the card has a fun dimensional sentiment peeking out…and a perfect spot between the train and the sign to write a little message!

Adore You: Colored Pencil Flowers

Hey, pencil-lovers…here’s a treat just for you!

Adore You: Colored Pencil Flowers

The flowers in this set, released last month, are so very pretty….lots of shapes and sizes for all kinds of designs – or use them all in one design! This was a fun even if time-consuming card…but as I was originally a colored pencil artist (planned to illustrate books…ha!), the time spent makes my heart happy! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

I spared you from awtching the entire coloring…it took about 2 hours to complete for this one. #yourewelcome LOL!

24 Tags of Christmas 2016: Pencil Ice Skates

Pencil pencil pencil! I get so many comments from giddy pencil-lovers when I put together a post using my Prismacolors…so here’s a tag for you! (And check out the Pencil Gallery Mini Glossy Accents.)

Pencil Ice Skates

I originally planned a one-layer tag- using white pencil for skate highlights. Which would have worked. But then I realized that if I *only* fussycut the skates, the white could really pop! It’s adhered with just some stamp runner, or you could add dimension under it too.¬†Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The tag is loosely tied by letting a few spirals of ribbon pass through the hole at the top of the tag.

Giveaway

Tradition is to give away the 24 tags…I’ll pick 24 winners from blog posts and YT comments, so leave some love and maybe you’ll win! Woohoo!

Sprinkled with Joy – interactive oven card

Sprinkled with Joy – interactive oven card

I’ve seen a bunch of videos on YouTube with these dies – and if you’re looking for ideas, definitely go do a search! There are two die sets that go with the oven stamps, and I’m using the “add on” set here in this video. And colored pencils. Watch the video below for construction tips… or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The oven itself is “inset” – since the outer panel is popped up on dimensional adhesive. That means the brad on¬†the oven door won’t stick up like a big lump when mailed; and I find that if the whole card is evenly thick, sometimes they don’t charge the extra fee.sandy-allnock-sprinkled-with-joy-open-oven

I love adding surprise treats to the inside of a card, too!

Chalkboard Balloons

I got out my pencils; at first I was going to use white paper, but realized it would be “spookier” for halloween on black paper. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

Camping with pencils – supplies to take with you

Don’t let vacation go to waste….do some coloring during those lovely quiet times with your family!

Camping with pencils

Make your summer vacation an art adventure too! Encourage your kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews to create, and innoculate them against the naysayers in their future. While I color this camping image in colored pencils, I’ll give you some ideas to share art with the littles in your life! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

What to pack for coloring on vacation?

Suggested supplies would be 1) your medium – colored pencils are often easiest, least messy. 2) something to color, prestamped; 3) pencil sharpener (hand powered); 4) a hard surface like a mini clipboard; 5) coloring books. Take things for the kids to work on too – new coloring books and a fresh box of crayons are a real treat! You can even download and print out color wheels for a fun art lesson while you’re on your trip and coloring together. If you learned about shading from the Copic Jumpstart Class, why not share that with kids?Sandy Allnock Camping w pencils
