Video: Simple Pencil Shading
Good morning! Jess here with a video showing you how using just a single colored pencil for some simple stamp shading can really make a card pop! I'm also sharing another look at the newest Partners stamp set: Friendship Blooms with Gina K. Designs!
You can watch the video below:

To start I used my MISTI to stamp the gorgeous floral arrangement from Friendship Blooms onto Hero Hues Plum Cardstock with Unicorn White Pigment Ink. I blasted it with a heat gun to set the ink and then started coloring! I mostly followed the lines of the stamp and added simple shading with a white colored pencil to the flowers only. I didn't press the pencil too hard into the paper to keep my shading light.
After I was done shading I placed the panel back inside my MISTI and restamped the floral arrangement with Embossing & Watermark Ink and heat-embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I also stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from Friendship Blooms with White Embossing Powder. I trimmed the panel down to 4" by 5.25" and adhered it to a Hero Hues Dove White Top-Folding Card! Finally I added a few Nuvo drops in Wild Orchid over the berry images in the stamp to finish my understated but elegant card!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous Monday!
