Girlfriends Card using Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol

2019 Scrapping for Less Art Impressions Card THUMB 04

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a fun holiday season! I’m taking a break from Holiday Card crafting to create a fabulous friendship card! The stamp set I’m using is called Girlfriends from Art Impressions, and I’m also using some chevron pattern paper from Scrapping for Less called Fairy’s Garden.

I decided to pull out my Prismacolor pencils to color in these ladies. I love AI stamps–they’re quirky and cute. They also provide you with a great example on the packaging of how to color in their images. For the most part I used their example as my inspiration, but I did change up the colors to match the cheery chevron pattern paper.

I colored them in pretty simply. Below you’ll see a list of the pencils I used. After I finished my coloring, I pulled out my Gamsol which is an odorless mineral spirit. I dipped a paper stump into the Gamsol and gently blended my colored pencil work. It breaks down the wax from the pencils and smooths out the coloring. It also helps to brighten the colors.

Prismacolor Pencils:

Both Ladies – Skin: Beige 977 & Beige Sienna 1080, Hair: Sienna Brown 945 & Chocolate 1082, Lips: Process Red 994, Cheeks: Magenta 930

Lady on Left – Sweater: Light Aqua 992 & Muted Turquois 1088, Pants: Blush 928 & Clay Rose 1017, Shirt: 50% Cool Grey 1063, Shoes: Goldenrod 1034

Lady on Right – Sweater & Shoes: Apple Green 912 & Dark Green 908, Pants: 50% Cool Grey 1063

To pull this card together, I used a scalloped oval die to cut out my image and added some foam tape behind it. I used a banner die to cut out the chevron pattern paper, and I adhered everything down onto a piece of green card stock. This is a top-folding, A2 sized card. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of pink card stock and adhered that over my oval. I love the sentiments in this set–so funny and cute! For a touch of sparkle I added some green gems diagonally across the card.
