Coloring Fun

I have loved to color since I was child.  My grandma always kept coloring books and crayons on hand for when we visited (I was with my grandparents every chance I got!)  I would sit for hours and color.  I was so happy after having my children, when they were old enough to be able to color and give me a reason to buy coloring supplies!  I love opening a brand new box of crayons, they are so pretty, all shiny and new, never been used and I even like the smell of them!!

Anyways, I have never played much with colored pencils and I didn't know until recently that they could be blended and make whatever was colored look so much prettier!!  Here is my first real attempt using a stamp from Inkadinkadoo and for the most part Crayola colored pencils and a Prismacolor colorless blender pencil (I have some blending stumps ordered so I can do it the recommended way!)

I used GinaK pure luxury layering weight (chocolate kiss) cardstock for the base of the card.  I stamped my image on GinaK pure luxury base weight cardstock (white).  I didn't think that it mattered what kind of paper was used to stamp and color on, but have realized after using the GinaK cardstock that it really DOES matter and make so much of a difference!

My picture didn't turn out well at all so I will post it tomorrow when I have better light! Instead I will upload a layout of my DD that I did a while ago!

Thanks for looking!

Have a great night!
