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.)
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.
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!

Cute skates. I like your work with pencils.
I won’t have guessed that these skates were pencil coloured. Amazing.
Love the shading on the blades! The white skates really stand out on the berries! Thanks for sharing!
Just love, love, love the skates. These tags are plain awesome!!!
I really like these skates and the way you did this tag.
What a great way to get a bright white skate on the Desert Storm coloured paper! Love the red laces. Wish I had had red laces as a child. They are so pretty! Gorgeous tag!
Love the traditional feel of these tags. The pencil on craft paper is beautiful.
So pretty! A friend of mine has skates like this that she uses to decorate with. Love them!
Light touch, gliding freedom, beautiful moment of tranquility… The skates and your coloring go well together❄️
Love the vintage look of these tags. Great job….TFS
I watched the video for this tag yesterday but ran out of time to leave some love. I am a huge fan of kraft and coloring with pencils. I think this tag is my favorite, i’m going to rewatch the video. You are the best Sandy. Thank you for sharing.
Love, love, love the pencil ice skates tag. I envy your talent.
Beautiful tag. The added dimension is really nice.
Great tag, I like the idea to make a loop out of a strip of cardstock. Thank you for sharing and for the chance to win the trags!
Lovely tag. I am getting so many tips and inspiration!
So cute and a nice reminder of winter as we head into an Aussie summer Christmas
The skate tag is adorable. Thank you for the great video.
Ooooooohhhhh! I am crazy about these skate tags! Colored pencils are easy to grab when on the go. I could color these while waiting at a doctor’s office or such. Thanks for the inspiration. 😀
Love ice skating… and tags in the mail!!!!! Gorgeous!
That skate stamp is really wonderful. Love how you think – to make your tags different from anyone else!
Thank you for all you have taught me over the months.
Love your tags. I’ve never ice skated, but would still love to color them. Thank you for sharing your talents and your creativity.
Gorgeous tags! Love the skates!
Really pretty tag!
These tags are wonderful. Love the way you added the white skates onto the kraft.
Good call with the fussy cutting. Looks awesome. Thanks for the scoop on the amazing pencil sharpener. I LOVE it!
Thankyou for such great, simple and easy techniques…piques my interest and increases my “stash”……I am making gift tags for my mom’s assisted living home, and love your ideas! ( ps, the link on your supply list to prismacolor is broken….oops)
Gorgeous coloring – love the skates.
Loved all of your tags and videos. Wonderful ideas. Love my pencils and copics. Thank you for your wonderful videos. I always learn something from your videos.
Thank you for sharing your great tag ideas. Always look forward to them!
Fabulous tags. I love the skates with the holly, berries and bow! 🙂
You are truly an artist. Love your videos. I learn so much. I’m one of those giddy colored pencil crafters who love it when you bring out your pencils. Thanks
Every day is an adventure in coloring! Thanks for sharing. I’d love to win these tags.
Great tag love the skates.
How do you leave a comment on you tube?
Thanks so much Sandie for another gorgeous video, I would be thrilled and honoured to win these gorgeous tags. Thanks for the chance.
This is is such a great idea…thanx for sharing your talents.
Well done on the skates tags……I also like how you matched the tag with the kraft bag….you have shared many ideas for these tags….thanks
These tags are gorgeous Sandy,I love how you’ve used Prismacolor pencils and must try mine out soon! Thanks for sharing,xx
If I tried to skate on these I’d fall and break something. Love the tag though.
Thank you for sharing your pencil techniques. I can see now that I need to use a lighter touch!! I like that the tags and bags coordinate 🙂
I love this tag! Brings back memories of skating on Christmas day.
Love the ice skates. Like that you fussy cut them. It does make them pop that way.
I think it pops more with the fussy cutting than if you had colored it in.
Love the pencil colouring on kraft coloured cs, it always gives a nice effect! The skates on the white paper with minimal shading really pop……Thanks for sharing. Have a lovely weekend. Cheers Donna Z 🙂
These are so pretty. I love the idea for creating the loop with the pencil. Thanks for the great ideas!
Y O Y do you live so far from me…
You are an Inspriational Artist…
Thank You so much for sharing your ideas…
Thank you for sharing the circle with tab great idea! Love the pencil coloring as usual.
These are just beautiful Sandy. I have finally come to the realisation over recent weeks that pencils are not copics in any way shape or form and that is perfectly okay. Watching your video just confirmed that. I love the smile that comes through in your voice too. Thanks Sandy xo
Hey, I just remembered a question I have. Does the Neenah paper have enough tooth to allow for layering and shading the color with your pencils?
