Melissa Phillips is up at PTI's MIM this week.
She is challenging us to use our colored pencils on kraft,
or some other darker card stock.
Melissa always wows. She's a master with every technique,
and her cards this week were filled with subtle layers and stamping textures.
So, of course, I had to try stamping layers with my colored
cupcake from Bakers Dozen.
Once I embossed the frame and cupcake in white, I masked it, and stamped
BB: Gingham all around it.
It was so much fun coloring it in! Lots of blending, all one layer.
Background card stock stamped with BB: Venice and Fine Linen ink.
I've done this technique before, and love the richness
it gives the images, once colored.
I used Prisma Watercolor Pencils
