Darnell is celebrating her and Mister's 46th Anniversary and her awesome djkardkreations: Blog 5th Birthday! Also Darnell has a new header to celebrate her 5th year entertaining and inspiring all of us :-)
There are prizes and 3 challenges..one a week for 3 weeks. Be sure and read all the rules. #8 is all about using Kraft CS and colored pencils and of course NBUS (never-before-used-schtuff). There are even more rules, so be sure and read all for this fun challenge.
Here is my NBUS Kraft and Prismacolor Pencils Card...
NBUS: SU Washi Tape and SSS sequins.
I heat embossed my leaves and flowers and fussy cut my shaped flowers and attached with dimensional tape. I used my Signo uni-ball pen to draw the white stitching. I stamped my sentiment with Archival Black ink using my MISTI...of course. Who wants crooked sentiments! To add a bit of bling I added the sequins and Wink of Stella to the leaves and flowers. I attached card front to base using foam tape.
The fun part was coloring the leaves and flowers with Prismacolor pencils and blending with Gamsol (odorless mineral spirits) using paper stumps. It was my 1st time to try the technique !!! Another NBUS :-)
I found this very helpful video on You-Tube..by Shari Carroll for Hero Arts.
Here is another awesome video by Dina Kowal Colored Pencil Blending. My friend Susan shared this video and I like it the best. More thorough!
That's It. Fun and Easy 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card. I am so happy the way it turned out. Thank you again Darnell for an awesome NBUS challenge with 2 more to look forward to soon! This challenge ends on Jan. 23rd, so more time to join the fun. Hugs...
