the teachers who have continued teaching not only their kids, but often times the
parents as well! It's a hard job made harder by what's going on. So, today I've made
a Teacher Thank You card using:
Let me show you how I made it! First I chose the elements from the digital stamp
set that I was going use. I only used 2 elements! Then I printed them out onto
Neenah 80b Classic Crest Solar White card stock. I copied and pasted the pencil
image multiple times!
I had a completely different idea in my head that shifted and changed throughout my
coloring process. I colored the pencils with Copic markers starting with the tops
and bottoms. I used: erasers - R11, R02; pencil wood - E21, E31.
Next I colored the pencils.
I used the following color combinations and did very simple shading:
Red: R14, R46
Orange: Y38, YR07
Yellow: Y08, Y17
Green: G02, G07
Blue: B24, B28
Purple: BV02, BV04
Orchid: V12, V05
For the sentiment I first had a box around it, then an oval and I finally decided
to just die cut it with an oval die!
Next I fussy cut the pencils. This was not difficult and didn't take that long. They
are all straight cuts. Then I took a black water-based marker and went around all
of the edges.
Next I prepared my card using an A2 size top folding white base. For my
background paper I used "Rainbows" from Whimsy Stamps...so pretty!!! I cut a
panel of that to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhered it to my base.
I adhered my pencils flat to the card front haphazardly. I wanted them to look
messy and used!...sort of like my work space!! Then I adhered my sentiment
oval with foam tape. And that completed my card!
I hope you enjoyed todays tutorial. I love working with bright colors! You'll
