designteamheadshots_channin Hello everyone!! It’s Channin here!! I’ve got another trio of one layer cards to share with you all today! I had so much fun playing with the Cutaway Alpha and Sketchy Numbers Stamps Sets that I just couldn’t stop! This week I’m sharing one of my favorite techniques, coloring on black cardstock with Prismacolor colored pencils! I love to incorporate different colored cardstock into my card designs to shake things up a little but how do you color your stamped images? That’s the beauty of Prismacolor colored pencils they keep their intensity even when used on dark cardstocks! Please watch my video below to get all the details! :)

I then completed the count down by stamping and embossing the “1” (I couldn’t do it earlier because I needed it to make the 10). Next, I die cut a sentiment from the Holiday Words Die set out of mustard colored cardstock. I then pressed the sentiment into my embossing ink pad and then embossed it too with my gold embossing powder. Once my sentiment was heat set, I adhered it to my card and then colored the embossed numbers with a rainbow of Prismacolor colored pencils (PC1027, PC905, PC912, PC916, PC926, PC994, and PC933). wfc-122016-channin-3 Card 2: I created my sentiment “Happy New Year!” using the Cutaway Alpha Stamp Set. I then stamped and embossed it in gold. Next, stamped and gold embossed the numbers from the Sketchy Number Stamp Set around the edges to frame the sentiment. Lastly, I colored the numbers using my colored pencils. wfc-122016-channin-4 Card 3: I stamped and gold embossed a “HELLO” and “2017” using the Cutaway Alpha and Sketchy Number Stamp Sets. Lastly, I colored the year in with my colored pencils.   wfc-122016-channin-1 I hope you enjoyed and will try colored pencils with your dark cardstocks!
