Christmas Waves

Christmas Waves

Hi All!

Today I am coloring kraft cardstock with colored pencils. I love the look – see this card for another good example of this technique.

I’m using Prismacolor pencils, which I usually use when it comes to dry colored pencils. I only have the 25-count set, but that seems to work just fine for me. 🙂

Here is a close-up of the coloring – very creamy and thick:

    You really rock CAS design, Darlene! This is such a nice, simple, but striking Christmas card. I love the colors you chose and how you colored the stamped panel. Thanks for sharing this. Hope y’all have a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow! 🐱 ~ Andrea

      Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Connie! I guess it’s already over for you now. I’m assuming you celebrate it even though you’re down under?

        Thanks Darlene. My hubby and I do our best here but it’s never the same as in the States. A friend from Australia just sent me a message to say she’s watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC today before flying home. What a great way to end her holiday!

    What a lovely idea for a Christmas card Darlene. It is so effective and I love the Kraft card stock with coloured pencils. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
