Hello, it’s Gaylynn. Today, I am sharing a card featuring colored pencils on colored cardstock with a sympathy theme.
This daisy vase is perfect for sympathy card making to have on hand for those times when you want to send condolences. And, it is possible and easy to add color over cardstock that is not all white.
Sentiment: Deepest sympathy.
I made a quick video tutorial HERE showing the process for this project.
In summary, here are helpful tips for this card using colored pencils on colored cardstock. To begin, pre-stamp and die-cut the daisy layer onto color cardstock. I used a teal shade for this card example. Next, add color to the flowers and the vase using colored pencils. Also, start by using one color at a time with a light hand. Then, add white accents if preferred. Also, repeat the color if you want a more vivid look. Optional, use blending solution and blending stumps to very lightly smooth out the pencil coloring. Once the coloring is completed, layer the panel onto the card front with a few embellishments, to finish.
