Saddle Up Card: Draw your own wagon!

Saddle Up Card: Draw your own wagon!

 

Saddle Up Card – draw your own wagon!

I don’t say this often but – I just LOVE this past release from MFT…so many cute sets! This cowboy and cowgirl are no exception! They have a few accessories in the sentiment, and one of them inspired this card – that wagon wheel. It’s so easy to make your own partial wagon – a distressed wooden block indicates that easily, whether it has a flap on the back for a cake, or just shows the wagon itself! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The bonus card with the little boy has a much simpler wagon – it just has the sentiment stamped on the wagon.

World Watercolor Month #11: Strip Coloring for Shark Week!

World Watercolor Month #11: Strip Coloring for Shark Week!

Strip Coloring

It’s shark week!!! I have two videos with sharks this week…today in pencil, and Wednesday in Copic. So be sure to come back for more!

In pencil it’s hard to spend as much time as it takes to do a full-background scene. But if you can create a “strip” of imagery with a scene – and find a way to make it seem purposeful, like in this card where the shark pops out of the box – the coloring goes much faster! It’s colored on my new favorite Stonehenge paper – awesome for colored pencil! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The other sentiments in the stamp set make great inside sentiments like this one!

The border of the inside of the card, as well as the strip of card base showing on the card front, are both using powdered pencil – a technique used in the Colored Pencil Jumpstart Class. 

The Polychromos colors used here are as follows…I tried jotting them down in order of what they were used for.

Whimsical Town Thanks Card

Sometimes I buy a stamp set *just* because I neeeeeeeeed to color it – this is one of those sets! Fortunately I stamped several so I can play with this arrangement on a card several times. (Thank you MISTI!) Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

For the road I opted to use a strip of black cardstock to match the layer under the town…and used a white pen to make the dotted line rather than the stamp. (because I was lazy! LOL)

Hex Charts!

In case you’ve missed it….there are now four hex charts available! Copic chart has been around a while but now there are 3 brands of colored pencil. (Note that there won’t be watercolor or watercolor pencil charts – we can’t run watercolor paper through our home printers or use waterproof ink.) All charts are HERE.

And the Colored Pencil Jumpstart Class content is available!  (You can join in class ANYtime, there’s nothing live that you need to be there for.)

Color a Horse in a Barn – Polychromos Pencils

 Color a Horse in a Barn – Polychromos Pencils

Hello friends! This is a special little post for my horse fans out there….a few asked if I’d color this stamp, so I bought it to do so! I tried out the Ink on 3 No Line ink as well….pleased with my first stamping of it but will hold off on a final verdict til I play with it more – you guys know me, I want to see if things work with lots of mediums! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The card turned into an easel card; I had done just the diecutting with the MFT stitched dies, and it just screamed out to be a special presentation after spending so long coloring it! The scores on the base are at 5.5″ and 2.75″ – and I cut the base so it was narrower than the front panel.

And yes…the colors!

Here’s the top view of the inside of the card….

I had first colored this scene in Copics while at my stamping group….
