Colored pencils on dark cardstock {+ video!}


Today I'm on the Lawn Fawn blog sharing a new card and video about how I color using colored pencils on dark cardstock

So here's the video, I hope you enjoy it!

I used Prismacolor Pencils to color this cute sloth on Blue Jay cardstock and then added some details to finish off the card but I kept it very simple.

I really like the look of the pencils on colored cardstock, I'm definitely going to do this again!

Thank you so much for stopping by, have a nice day!

Hola, Yainea. Soy tu fan número uno en Suiza (je je...)! Hace tiempo que veo tus videos en el blog de Lawn Fawn y quería felicitarte porque me parece que la calidad de tus grabaciones ha mejorado muchísimo. Antes tenían un vaivén de zoom que me mareaba un poco (pero me gustan tanto tus tarjetas que siempre veía los videos hasta el final) y el poder escuchar tu narración en vez de leerla también resulta mucho más divertido :o) Felicidades y gracias por compartir tu talento con el mundo! Si te apetece intercambiar tarjetas, me daría muchísimo gusto recibir una de tus magníficas creaciones y enviarte una mía. También tengo un blog y un canal de YouTube y me daría mucho gusto si algún día tuvieras tiempo de pasarte por ahí: www.watts-she-making.com Un abrazote, Dennice

Your card is really adorable, the black distressing on the edges made the sloth stand out even more and I really liked the wooden stars.
