Savvy Creations with Cassandra / Créations avisées avec Cassandra

Hello Magenta Friends! Cassandra here today with a card featuring no-line pencil crayon colouring on kraft.

For this card, I used the cute spring Flowering Nest - Nesting Bird stamp. Because the image is 2.75” x 3.25” in dimension, I went with a 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" kraft card base. I positioned the cardbase and the stamp in a MISTI stamp positioning tool and stamped it with VersaMark ink two times to give a clear enough outline to follow for colouring. Then, I coloured the image using Staedtler colouring pencils, working from light to dark colours. As the colouring progressed, the VersaMark ink virtually disappears as it blends in. Once, I was happy with my colouring, I splattered a watered down mix of white acrylic paint. Once, that was dry, I stamped the A Little Bird Told Me... sentiment with VersaMark ink and heat set it with gold embossing powder. It appeared a little light on the kraft so to make it stand out a bit more, I took a sharp dark brown pencil crayon and added some shadows to the lettering.

Using pencil crayons is a fun and relaxing way to colour a stamped image. I particularly love the soft look it creates on kraft paper especially with the no-line use of VersaMark. I hope you give this technique a try and be sure to share your results with us either: here on the blog with a link in the comments section below, on Instagram, or in our Facebook group.

Happy creating!
