I'm Here for You

I haven't pulled out my Gamsol, stumps, and Prismacolor pencils for such a long time. I love my Copics, but once in a while, I like the softer effect you get with the pencils.

I chose to work with "My beary best friend" stamp from Stamping Bella and one of my go-to sentiment sets from My Favorite Things called "Essential Sentiments". I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then used the Magic Colored Pencil technique to color it.

There are several great tutorials out there if you are interested in this coloring technique. Here are just a few:
The papers used were from My Mind's Eye's Abbey Road collection. I love the pink and orange together. So fresh!

That's it for tonight!

It's all about the details:

Ahhhhhhhh, Kathie!
Such sweetness. I saw this stamp in my collection the other day and thought - gosh I haven't used it forever. So nice to see it again.
I love the layout of your card and your beautiful colouring!
Hugs, Candy
