Parrot Paradise: Adding Depth with Color Pencils – Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it’s Therese and I am so happy to share an idea today for a bright card design.

I stamped and coloured the parrot image from Parrot Paradise stamp set with Copic markers and used Prismacolor pencils to add depth to the coloring.

Altenew - Parrot Paradise - Pattern Play Hexagon - Bold Alphabet - Lostinpaper (card video) 1 copy

I have made my own background design using the Pattern Play – Hexagon stamp set.  Firstly I chose colors that would work well together and repeatedly stamped the filler images with Altenew Crisp Dye Inks.  I used Orange Cream, and Pinkalicious.

Altenew - Parrot Paradise - Pattern Play Hexagon - Bold Alphabet - Lostinpaper (card video) 1 copy

Then I was able to die cut the sentiment using the Bold Alphabet Die set from Turquoise cardstock and I popped each of the letters up on some white fun foam.  Then I added a sentiment from the Sentiments & Quotes Stamp Set.

I have linked a video below. So you can watch the process to see how it all came together.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

Thanks so much for your visit today!
