Colored Pencil Crab Card

AJVD, Whimsie Doodles, Kecia Waters, Prismacolor Pencils

Good Monday to you!  Kecia Waters here on the AJVD blog today.

If I keep making cards from the set "Seas The Day" from Whimsie Doodles, I'm thinking Jillian might take it away from me, LOL.  I won't give it up!  It is too cute!

I did this card to show you some coloring with my Prismacolor pencils.  Some people are surprised how vibrant colored pencils can really be.  When I use these pencils, I do press hard to blend the colors together, though I do not use Gamsol or a blending pencil like many do.

To make this card, I stamped the adorable crab and starfish from the "Seas the Day" set with Stazon Jet Black ink onto Strathmore Mixed Media paper.  I colored the scene with Prismacolor pencils and cut the scene with AJVD's "Oval Backdrop Die Set".  I framed the scene with black cardstock.

A strip of patterned paper from Lasting Impressions and kraft cardstock form the layers of this card.

The sentiment, also from "Seas The Day" was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  A button and Baker's Twine complete the details on this card.
