Hi! Today I am back to basics and I decided to do some coloring with pencils. I used the Spellbinders Stamp of the month, called Orange Blossoms. If you are not familiar with this kit, check out Spellbinders. They have lots of monthly kits that they call “clubs”. You can find a die kit, card kit, stamp kit and more. All great quality with lovely products.
So the “stamp of the month” kit comes with a red rubber stamp set, the matching dies and a leaflet of inspiration. This month is all about oranges and I love the freshness of the design.
So here is what I came up with
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
To color my oranges I used my Prismacolor pencils. I also did some blending with gamsol and stumps. You don’t have to do that since Prismacolors are high end pencils and they give great results. It really depends on the look you are going for. One of the things I love about using pencils when coloring is that you don’t have to rush to do your blending. I find it more relaxing than alcohol marker blending… but that’s completely a personal thing! Plus it’s nice to rotate between your coloring mediums… so non of your markers, pencils, acrylics, inks, watercolors etc, feel neglected for a long period of time!!!
