Happy Wednesday! Kraft cardstock are one of the very popular colored cardstock among cardmakers. Coloring image on a dark cardstock can be tricky, so I wanted to share an easy way that you can achieve the look above without using too many products. Also, I am sharing a Sneak Peak of an upcoming stamp set!

The images from the Easter Lily by Inspired By Stamping are so pretty and beautiful (available next week!). I love the hand-drawn designs and love to work with them on my projects whenever I can.

I simply stamped the lily image with a white pigment ink pad, by stamping it lightly onto the Kraft cardstock. This is so that I have a guidance while coloring the image. If you want it to show more, you can use black ink, or even heat embossing it.

I used Prismacolor pencils on today’s project. If you saw my other videos you already know that I’ve been exploring different coloring options for my crafting needs. I am still testing different brands out so I will post a review video later on.

Prismacolor pencils are very smooth and soft, they go on to the paper really nicely. You can also blend them together pretty easily. If you never used colored pencils, and want to invest on a higher quality ones, I recommend you start with a smaller set and decide which brand you like the best.

I love how soft it looks with the coloring technique I did on this card. It just shouts “spring!” I hope you take some time to color today. It is very soothing!
