Coloring on Kraft Paper + a Giveaway!

A Happy Hello by Jennifer McGuire 1

I just love the Hero Arts Kraft Notecards. The texture is so natural and unique…and adding pops of color is easy! I just stamped first with Unicorn White Pigment Ink and let it dry. (You can heat set it if you want.) I then colored over the white ink with the new Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils. You can go soft or bold…it just depends on how hard you press! I went with medium pressure and kept the coloring “incomplete” for an artsy look. I did blend the coloring a bit by going over it with a white pencil. You can use any colored pencils for this technique, but I really like the smoothness of good quality colored pencils like these.
