Bonus Alternatives - Easter Cards Using March 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Beyond The Horizon - Colored Pencils Organization, Supplies & Real Time Demo - Four Cards
This is a long one for all you colorists out there. I use the Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils with no water to create vibrant and fun easter images.
Then I walk through four A2 card alternatives and stamp the insides and envelopes (sped up).
This is part one. Part two will walk through using retiring DSP backgrounds. You won't want to miss my Easter series!
As promised, I attached my "wet" color matching chart for Stampin' Up!s watercolor pencil sets (there are two different sets):
- Column 1 - is a sample of the coordinating dye stamp ink color
- Column 2 - sample of the matching colored pencil as pigmented as I could make it. (if there is a number under the ink I've inserted a better matching color from one of my other colored pencil sets)
- Column 3 - will be either the SU pencil or AD pencil if a number is under it.
4/7 - I have finished swatching non-SU pencil colors. The most challenging color to match was balmy blue, thus I chose a blue from all three brands.
- Three digit numbers are Albrecht-Durer watercolor pencils
- Three digits with an L on the end are Luminance colored pencils (not watercolor)
- Four digits Derwent Inkense
Also on my list to do - I've never swatched the SU pencils dry and now that I've used them and really like how they are to use dry.
