hello friend...

Hello!! Popping in on this second to last day of 2017 with one more card for the current Altenew  year in review challenge.  This time I picked the January color palette and did some coloring on kraft cardstock with my Prisma pencils.  I need more practice, but I think things turned out fairly well.  I used the Altenew Bamboo Rose stamp set and stamped all the images using Simon Says Stamp white pigment ink.   Then colored up the images with the pencils you see in the photo.  Once I was done I went over the outlines with the white Prisma pencil.  I decided to trim out what I colored and then popped it up on an off white cardstock base that I stamped with the word hello from the Altenew Flower Arrangement set.  The hello (from Altenew's Halftone Hello) was stamped on vellum, embossed in white, trimmed out and popped up.   I really liked coloring on kraft so will definitely be doing more in the future!   I'm also going to add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.
