I have been receiving a lot of questions about colored pencils, so I thought I would share another video on how I do colored pencil coloring. I am not an expert, but rather just show easy ways to get good, fast results.
My first example features a FUN image and sentiment from the Honey Bee Gather Together Stamp Set (SSS | EH | HB). I stamped it with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink (SSS | EH) on Gina K Artist Choice Cardstock and added lots of simple coloring with my Chameleon Colored Pencils and Gamsol Kit (SSS | EH).
I show how to use Chameleon Colored Pencils today. These pencils are great for on-the-go coloring and also as a basic set for beginners, etc. I like that the pencils have two ends so picking two colors to go together is effortless. I also used my Gamsol Kit (SSS | EH). If you aren’t comfortable with using gamsol (please use safely), you can try baby oil instead. Some people like using baby oil… I just find gamsol much better/easier.
For the background, I used the cloud stencil from the Honey Bee Outdoor Scene Builder Stencils (SSS | HB) along with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. (I first masked my animal images with a mask cut from Avery Removable Adhesive Sheets with the coordinating die.)
My second card was fun to make! I did quick coloring of a bird from the Honey Bee Snow Birds Stamp Set (SSS | EH | HB)… again using Chameleon Colored Pencils and my Gamsol Kit (SSS | EH). Isn’t that bird so cute!?
I added it to a card I created using the Honey Bee Coffee Card Gift Holder Dies (SSS | EH | HB). This die set is so creative! When you open the coffee cup, there is a gift card inside along with a space to write your message. This die set is easy to use.
