Coloring With Prismacolor Colored Pencils

Hello there! Today’s video shows how to create a card using Prismacolor colored pencils for many different techniques and applications. I am going to be using the Uplifter stamp set for today’s project as well.

I started out by coloring the little bird with a very light pressure. I recommend building up layers of color for the best results. I used four or five different color shades for each area of the image. For the sentiment, I stamped “keep smiling” onto the banner.

To create a sky background, I used four different shades of blue and scribbled them on from light to dark. To create some texture in the sky I took an alcohol marker blending pen to pull up some of the color in little dots.

To finish the card I added some patterned paper and tied a bow with natural twine at the top. To add just a touch of dimension I also added some Glossy Accents to the bird’s beak and portions of the background.
