For today I've been working with the FABULOUS Tombow Recycled color pencils set that Tombow so generously provided for each designer! The colors are wonderful, and they are easy to work with too!

This beautiful stamp is CRR236, Cling Crystal Angel, from Stampendous. Isn't she lovely!

  • Stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Add some color along the edges of the image and in the corners of the background with the Recycled colored pencils from Tombow USA
  • Use Odorless Mineral Spirits and a blending stump to blend the colors
  • Use a dries clear liquid glue to add some Ultrafine Crystal Glitter to the snowflake and corners
  • Stamp the saying from SSC1231, Holiday Expressions and add color to the edges
  • Mount into a beautiful card
It's as simple as that! Here are the colors of pencils I used: 13 Light Blue, 16 Ultramarine, 05 Yellow Ochre, 31 Brown, 29 Light Orange, 22 Pink, 35 Silver, 34 Gray. For a little more detail, here's a close up:

I really like how you've taken a complex stamped image and focused on coloring the fairy, adding the sentiment and the blurry blue corners. So pretty.
