Floating By

Hi there!
Today I have 2 cards being featured over on the 



These cards were created using one of this month's new release digi sets available in the





When you purchase this digital set you will receive a zip file containing:
- 3 black and white line drawings
- 3 full colour images
- 6 word images / sentiments



I colored the digis on both cards with Prismacolor Pencils and fussy cut.

The background of the first card was done with stenciling the sky. I printed the sentiment over
the stenciling. I used  "hill" die and cut aqua card stock for the waves, adding little white gel pen.
 I used a punched circle for the sun and hand cut the sun rays.


I chose a simple design for the second card.
The sentiment was printed on my white card stock background. 
I added 2 strips of aqua card stock and 3 layered stickers from my stash.

I hope you check this set out.

Coloring on Black Card Stock

Have you ever done any coloring on black card stock? It’s not one of the easiest things to do but can be very effective with the right materials.

Hey there! It’s Judy VZ here and I’m sharing my latest project for CutCardStock. It’s a Father’s Day card I created by coloring on black card stock with metallic pencils.


I started by doing some stamping with VersaMark watermark ink onto a piece of Basis BLACK 80lb Cardstock. Clear embossing powder was used to heat emboss the stamped images.


Color is added with metallic pencils by coloring inside of the embossed lines.





A 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch card base was made with a piece of the Basis BLACK 80lb Cardstock. I cut a piece of Basis WHITE 80lb Cardstock to 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches. The colored panel measures approximately 5 1/8 x 5 1/8 inches.

The Basis White Card Stock was adhered to the black card base. I added a rectangular strip of black and white striped card stock from Christmas Holiday Print 6×6 Card Stock pad – Assortment – 18 sheets. My stamped and colored piece was torn around the edges for a little texture and adhered to the card center. The sentiment was die cut using the Basis BLACK 80lb Cardstock. This was glued to a strip of the Basis White Card Stock and fussy cut.

The sentiment was adhered with foam tape across the stamped piece and I added 3 black enamel dots to finish.


I hope you have enjoyed my project today and give coloring on black card stock a try!

The theme for this challenge is: 

~ Buttons &/or Bows ~ 
 
Our sponsor for this challenge is: 
      

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate
 

I colored this beautiful fairy digi with Castle Arts Pasteltint Pencils and fussy cut.
My background was created with a die cut and embossing folder from Crafter's Companion.
I actually had it sitting in my crafting area, as I had originally
cut, embossed and inked it about a month ago for another project and decided not to use it.
Does that ever happen to you?
I did ink the greenery a little darker that it was.
The dark pink panel was added behind.
I stamped the sentiment.
I added a bow with a flower button.

Won't you join us this month?
We'd love to see your take on the theme!
