Welcome! I hope you are all having a wonderful day. Today’s card is a chocolate themed card. I love this cute stamp set from Stamping Bella Oddball line called “Oddball with a Sweet Tooth.” The sentiment really spoke to me; it says “Sometimes to stop eating all the chocolate, one must first eat all the chocolate.” It’s a very funny and true sentiment. I know a lot of people who could relate to this sentiment. Lol! I’m going to make up many more cards using this stamp set. I have a 10% off coupon code for you to the Not 2 Shabby Shop: N2S10.

I pulled out my colored pencils for this card. I’m using my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils on a piece of Stonehenge white colored pencil paper. I love using this paper for my colored pencil work. It has a nice tooth to it. To get a smoother look, you could use Gamsol and a blending stump to smooth out your work, but I like the look of the colored pencil lines.
Here is the list of colored pencils I used to color in my image:
Faber Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils: Dress: Light Magenta 119, Middle Purple Pink 125, Light Red-Violet 135, Mauve 249;
Apron: Cold Grey II, Cold Grey III;
Skin: Light Flesh 132, Cinnamon 189, Brown Ochre 182;
Hair: Terracotta 186, Sanguine 188, Burnt Sienna 283. Light Yellow Ochre 183, Deep Red 223
I also used a set of slimline dies from Trinity Stamps to cut out the two panels for my card. I love creating slimline cards lately. Trinity Stamps make some really fun slimline dies. To create my chocolate covered striped panel I used a Trinity Stamp Slimline stencil and blended on some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink.
Here is my process video. You can watch it here or over on my YouTube channel in HD.
Have a fun, crafty day. Thanks for visiting!
