Colouring Video – Magnolia Blossoms

I have another pencil colouring video for you today. This time I’ve used a stamp by My Favorite Things called Magnolia Blossoms. The image has been stamped twice at slightly different angles using GinaK Designs’ Amalgam Ink and it has been coloured up using Prismacolor Premier Pencils.

There’s no audio this time either and the video itself has been sped up so that it is twice as fast as the real time colouring. Then you have an idea of how long it took to colour it. It takes longer to make the actual video than it takes to colour up the image, that’s for sure!

Pencils used: (brown) 947, 945, 943, 997, (green) 109, 1097, 1005, 989, (pink) 994, 929, 928, 1014, 938

Another pencil coloured flower

As you’ve noticed I am quite fond of colouring with pencils on kraft. I have yet to actually try to use them on anything else! This time I’ve coloured up a stamp from Power Poppy. The numbers were cut out using an MFT Stamps die and then coloured up with the same pencils so it would match the colour of the flower. I finished it off with the recipient’s name and a few enamel dots.

Dragon and snowdrop

I have coloured up a few of Lee Holland‘s adorable images this year, but I think this might be the first time one of them has made its way onto a card. It would work as both a birthday card and a Christmas card (well, and encouragement and friendship cards), but in the end I opted to make a birthday card out of it by using a Papirdesign sentiment. I kept the whole thing quite simple. The stamp was coloured up using Prismacolor pencils.

Colouring video (pencils) Penguin Candy Cane

It is time for my first colouring video using pencils. It is nothing fancy and I don’t feel ready to talk you guys through it yet, as I still haven’t coloured up loads of images using pencils, but you can watch me colour and hopefully pick up a trick or two along the way. You can watch as I colour up this entire image by Whimsy Stamps called Penguin Candy Cane (digital stamp). It is also available as a rubber stamp here.

I have used the digital stamp version and printed it out on Bazzill cardstock in the colour Kraft. And as you can see in the video I’m not exactly crazy about sharpening my pencils constantly. I think it works well enough like this and it means I can keep my pencils for longer.

To show how this could look as a completed Christmas card, I’ve made a very simple one.

I have used Prismacolor Premier pencils and the colours are:

Orange: PC1003, PC118, PC122, PC947
Grey (cold): PC1059, PC1060, PC1061,

Purple: PC1026, PC956, PC1008, PC996

Here is a quick photo of the colours I used to colour this image:

Whimsy Fox Mom

There is a new ¬†Whimsy Stamps release out today. Can you believe it’s July already?! I decided to dig out my pencils for this one and I also mirrored the stamp so the fox is facing right instead of left. This is my first attempt at fur using pencils, so although I’m not entirely happy with it I also know I should have semi-reasonable expectations, hahaha. I think it turned out alright, to be honest! The stamp is called Fox Mom.

I kept the card mostly simple, but added a cluster of die cuts from various paper scraps I had laying about. A few enamel dots and a sentiment also from Whimsy Stamps which I coloured digitally to match the scraps of paper.
