One layer card with Pencil coloring on a grey card base


Hello and welcome!
Today, I'm sharing another card for the current less is more #336/337 challenge and AAA Cards challenge#94 where they share the same theme "Colored Cardbase". 

These days, I've been inspired of pencil coloring on a colored card stock from many talented cardmakers, finally I fell in love with what TaeEun Yoo and Debby Hughes made at first sight.
As a result, I almost CASEd Debby's card which was posted on Simon Says Stamp Blog just today.
So here goes mine.


I chose gray colored card base, then I stamped "Bouquet of Thanks" with a gray colored hybrid ink, and colored it with prismacolor pencils.
I tried to follow Debby's Youtube video tutorial, but the video played so fast, so I couldn't catch up with her exactly. So I just colored as my heart led. 

After finishing coloring, I added some highlight with a gel pen, then I stamped a sentiment chosen from Thoughtful Messages from Simon Says Stamp with Versafine ink.
I added some sequins (crystal clear sequins from Studio Katia) and finished off my card.



Here is a closer look at the flowers.





There were some technical errors in making this card, major error was stain from oily materials that were left in my fingers and palm. So I had to trim a little the bottom part of the card. 
 I'm satisfied with the final result though.
Debby's tutorial let me understand more about the essentials of pencil coloring. Thank you so much for the great inspiration!

Thanks for reading this post.
Hope you enjoyed it.
Marge
