Coloring Inside the Lines the Easy Way

Neat and tidy coloring inside the lines isn’t something you see very often at aColorfulJourney but when I do it here, I am not really staying carefully inside the lines. But it doesn’t really show up because of what I used to add the color to this gel print!

This is the print I started with made using my Overlapping Hearts stencil from StencilGirlProducts.com

In the video below, you’ll see how I stenciled the hearts in gray, the super speedy way, using a gel plate.

Using Inktense pencils, supply link at the end of this post for you, I loosely and imperfectly colored in the white areas.

By simply adding water to the colored pencil, the color came alive. Inktense pencils are very vibrant and intense color, hence their name.

After it was completely dry, a layer of scribble journaling was added.

The plan for this was to create a quick card, but I unexpectedly didn’t want to cut it up, so it just might get a quick 8×10 mat around it. That way it can be sent as a gift instead of a card!

    I think one BIG card would be fun!

    What fun! I vote for several different cards. Cut out and mount on Cardstock and then decide which one to send to your friend now, and others later like a series! Have fun, and thanks for sharing. Deborah Lee
