Hi everyone, today I would like to show you this boy birthday card for which I used a fun Lili of the Valley digital stamp that I coloured with the fabulous Spectrum Noir Colourblend coloured pencils.
I started my card by printing this LOTV “Superstriker” digital image onto Canson Mi-Teintes Pastel paper (from the block with five colours this is the middle colour, a sort of yellow-greenish-brown coloured paper). This paper is awesome to colour on and for coloured pencil it’s advised that you use the back of the paper which is less textured.
After printing I die cut around the image using a rectangle die two sizes smaller then my card base and considering that I wanted to stamp my sentiment underneath the image, so I had to leave room for that.
I stamped one of the sentiments from the Altenew “Birthday Builder” stamp set underneath the image using Versafine “Onyx Black” ink.
Now I’m ready to colour my image; for this I used the Spectrum Noir Colourblend pencils in the following colours: Linen, Cream, Espresso, Maple, Cedarwood, Taupe, Black, Pistachio, Jade, Ivy and Emerald.
For my highlights i used a white drawing pencil.
When the colouring is done I added back some of the printed lines using a Spectrum Noir ArtLiner (01).
All of the Colourblend pencils that I used on today’s project are from the following sets: Primaries and Essentials.
For my mat I choose a darker brown card stock that I cut to the right size, using a rectangle shaped die, slightly larger then the previous one. These two panels I adhered together using liquid glue.
And all I have to do now to finish my card is to adhere this combination to a crème coloured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.
That’s it for today’s card project! I wish you a creative day!
