Creating Kindness: Colored Pencils

Hey friends! I hope everyone is home, healthy, and finding lots of time to craft! The Creating Kindness team is here to entertain you a bit. This month we are focusing on Colored Pencils. Thankfully, I had a small stash of Prismacolor pencils stashed in a drawer, and brought them out to play.

You would think there was more intention behind choosing the stamps I used. However, what really happened is that I found a piece of paper with several images from the Simon Says Stamp Party Like a Panda stamp set in my crafty cart, lol!

I pulled out an oval Papertrey Ink Shaker Shapes dies from my stash to create the shaker element. And Concord and 9th Seasonal Borders to stamp the background. The sequins are stash finds also. Who needs to buy more stuff? Not this crafter!

And I discovered that I really like using these colored pencils! And that I do not have any brown pencils. And I would like at least 2 brown pencils! We are going to call that a carrot cake, OK?

I love how smooth and rich these colored out to be!

To get some shading on the green, I used yellow with it. I think all my practice layering and blending colors with watercolors and Copics was helpful here.

That is my contribution, time to head off to the next stop!
