A Bold BRIGHT Card!

Well, I didn't get the stamping time that I so desired this week, but I was able to pull off a 2-day card!
It took me two days!

Day 1) I stamped and colored the image (C.C. Designs) in a moment of need... (the need for coloring therapy) yesterday. I used my new Koh-i-Noor pencils to color the image. (Many thanks for those!! ; ) I LOVE the weight of these pencils, the slick feel, the intense color, and the easy blending ability! As with any other coloring medium though....these will take practice! They blend differently than my prismacolor pencils.......I definitely need to work on the pinks! That was all I got done Wednesday, stamp....color.....that was it!

Day 2) On Thursday, I used my rectangle Nestabilities to cut the main image out, matted it on Green Galore (sponged a bit with Wild Wasabi...cuz that was the only green already out and I was too lazy to find the GG ink) and matted that on black. I used two black pens to create the dotted outline, then I used dug out my word window punch and made the three tabs, adhered them, punched them, brad'ed them (is that a word?), and "popped" it on top of the Prima Paper Dude patterned paper (sponged with a bit of Versamagic Black) all on top of a whole card of Green Galore!! Since my word window punch was already out on the table, I used it to make tiny notches in the edge of the card to hold the ribbon in place, slapped the ribbon on....and rubbed the rub-on on.....and there ya be! My two-day card! I'm actually quite pleased with it!

I so... understand the "2 day card" thing!!!! It's stamp a little here, color a little there, ooh I have 5 minutes to myself, maybe I can tie a bow... Yes, I know that drill! This is such a cute card! So glad you were able to complete it!

Love it! That image is one of my favorites.

I am a 2-day stamper all the time. Glad you got something done at least! I've been eyeing those new pencils too, if you're giving them the official nod I may have to run down to Gina K's store and get me some.

Hey, I think 2 days is super fast! Sometimes it takes me a week to pull together a few minutes at a time to complete a card! I love these bright colors! It looks like the pencils do have an intense color quality! Really darling card!
