Colored Pencils on Dark Cardstock - MFT Release Replay

March 13, 2018

It's time for MFT Release Replay DT Challenge. Today the MFT DT is taking a fresh look at our most recent release with inspiring ideas and innovative takes on the complete collection. We love the opportunity to look at our products with fresh eyes, envisioning entirely new ways to showcase the possibilities they present!

I tried coloring with colored pencils on dark cardstock today.

I stamped the solid flowers from the Pressed Flowers stamp set on Eggplant cardstock with Sweet Tooth pigment ink. I also used a leaves image from the Bold Blooms stamp set.
After the ink dried completely, I colored them with colored pencils. (I use Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils. I didn't add any water this time though.)
I die cut the word "friend" three times from Smooth White cardstock and layered them. I also heat embossed a sentiment from the Anything-but-Basic Friendship stamp set under the "friend".

You can see how I colored those flowers in the video below. Click HERE to watch it on YouTube.

Head on over to the MFT blog to see what the other DT members have come up with for today!

Thank you for stopping by!
