Arteza 120 Expert Colored Pencils Review | Panel Splicing Technique

Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting my blog. Today I’m reviewing the set of 120 Expert Colored Pencils from Arteza. They very generously sent me these colored pencils. I love trying out new art mediums, especially colored pencils. These pencils from Arteza are lovely. They are vibrant, easy to blend, and don’t break while you use them. (Free Swatch Chart Below!)

I revisited an old technique I used in a video a couple of years ago, and I love it. I call it panel splicing. I colored my image on pink card stock, and on kraft card stock. I love using colored pencils on colored card stocks! I then stamped the image again onto pink and kraft card stock, but this time I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This gives you a beautiful tone-on-tone look.

It’s key to use a stamp positioner like the Misti, so you can stamp in exactly the same place on each panel. Then when you cut them apart, they will match up perfectly. I cut two panels at the same time using my Fiskars paper trimmer. I also cut out a 3/4 inch strip on the inside of the image, so I could replace it with a piece of gold card stock. This really makes it look elegant.

Below is a list of the Arteza colored pencils I used on both the pink and the kraft card stock:

Pink Rose: Pink Macaron, Fruit Punch, Magenta, Garnet Red

Cream Rose: Cream, Marmalade Orange, Turmeric Yellow, Rust Orange

Blue Flower: Periwinkle Blue, Ube Purple, Amethyst Purple

Yellow Flowers: Sunflower Yellow, Dark Chocolate Brown

Rounded Leaves: Lime Green, Fern Gree, Jade Green

Thin Leaves: Moss Green, Olive Green

Rose Leaves: Matcha Green, Moss Green

I love the sentiments that came in this Hero Arts set Called Togetherness Flower Bouquet! They were perfect for this card technique where you combine two different panels together.

I was asked to guest design again this month! I created a card using each collection from November’s Flavor of the Month Card kit. The theme is “A Vintage Christmas.” I absolutely love anything vintage–especially Christmas decorations! All the stamps and pattern papers from this kit have that fabulous vintage vibe–they were so much fun to craft with! Out of all the collections in this kit, I really couldn’t choose a favorite. Each collection is awesome, and I loved how all my cards turned out. Check out my YouTube Video below and supply links!

Card #1: Victorian Christmas Card

I stamped this Victorian house onto a piece of kraft card stock from the kit and colored it in using colored pencils. I pulled out my Gelly Roll Pens to add bright glowing colors to the twinkle lights hanging from the eves of the house. I then stamped the snowflakes from the set using white pigment ink.

Card #2: Christmas Post Card

The stamp from this collections is from LDRS, and of the back of the packaging they show a picture of this stamp already colored in. I used this as my inspiration, and colored in my card just like it. I love all the white details they left uncolored on their example. I used a mixture of my Prismacolors and Polychromos pencils to color in this scene.

I used one of the sketches to put this card together. I don’t often create square cards, but I had fun putting this one together. It is a 5″ x 5″ card, and I cut out the square window on the red pattern paper as well as the striped pattern paper using a square die.

IMG_9163

Card #3: Jolly Santa Card

I love this Santa image! I’m going to be using this stamp again to make more Christmas cards this year. I colored him in using colored pencils again, but I used a very soft color palette. His hat looks more pink than red, and I love it! I stamped him onto a piece of Insulation Pink card stock. It was my inspiration for coloring in my Santa. It’s such a soft pink–you can’t buy this card stock anymore, so I’m going to hoard the rest of my 8 1/2 x 11 sheet. Lol! I used another card sketch to pull this card together.

IMG_9164

Card #4: An Ornamental Christmas Card

I used even more colored pencils this time. I love using them on kraft card stock, so that’s what I did. I masked off the flower that was on this bulb so that I could stamp the sentiment there instead. I heat embossed it with Alabaster White embossing powder, but before I heat embossed it, I just stamped it with embossing ink, colored it in, and then heat embossed it. This allowed me to color in the image without having to go around the raised embossed lines.

Card #5: Noel Ornament Card

I love this die from the Banana Split level! I wanted to cut it out with some glitter paper, so I found a piece that matched really well with the pattern paper from the kit. I cut it out two more times with the die and glued them together. This added more dimension to the die cut.
