1st Card from our Card Designer Carol Celeste

Good Evening Bloggers:

Today we are releasing the 1st card for this month from our Card Designer, Carol Celeste.   This card along with the other projects are hanging up on the wall to the right of the door as soon as you walk into Scrapper's Playground. Please feel free to ask any of our Staff for information on the products that were used on these projects.

1st Card by Carol Celeste


Stamps by Paper Smooches - Flowers: Calico; Sentiment:  Good Gab
Versa Magic Chalk Ink - Cloud White
Color Pencils from Faber Castell Mix and Match Media Sets in Yellow and Green
Spica Pens - Yellow and Orange
Miscellaneous:  Ribbon, Bling, Corner Rounder

To create this card, I stamped the images using the white chalk ink.  Then I colored them with the colored pencils.  The pencils blend well together or you can use your finger to "smudge" them a bit.  You can try this on all sorts of color paper with all colors of the colored pencils.  I love this technique.  It is really easy and lets you get more from your colored pencils.  I added a bit of bling to the center of the large flowers, some Spica Pen to the smaller flowers and to the sentiment.  To finish the inside, I stamped a flower in yellow chalk ink, the stem in green chalk ink and added a bit of colored pencil to the flower for some interest.

Great job Carol!
