Wishing… with colored pencils


  • Stencil – Hero Arts “Borders”
  • Stamp – Simon Says Stamp “Square Sayings”
  • Border punch – Fiskars “Upper Crest”
  • Cardstock – Neenah Solar White, Bazzill
  • Colored pencils – Staedtler
  • Prismacolor colored pencil – white

I created this card based on Day Two lessons on Online Card Classes Stenciled class. I used colored pencils with a stencil and then continued to smear the coloring in the same direction as my coloring with an eraser. I then took a white Prismacolor pencil and colored through the stenciled images with vertical strokes. This gives the impression of the objects falling or raining down. Thanks for stopping by.



Miss you all the time: Stenciled – Day One


  • Stencil – Tim Holtz Collection – Stamper’s Anonymous “Clockwork”
  • Stamp – Hero Arts OWH Set “You’re Always in my Heart”
  • Patterned paper – Marion Smith Designs – “Nirvana: Photo Op”
  • Cardstock – BoBunny and Bazzill
  • Distress Ink – Ranger – Bundled Sage, Victorian Velvet  and Walnut Stain

This was the first card that I’ve made during the Online Card Classes Stenciled. This one is from a lesson during Day One. I used heat embossing and a stencil for this card, applying color with Ranger Distress inks. As usual, I’m really enjoying this class and having fun trying some new techniques. I will be adding this to my Operation Write Home box–it is always fun to use the OWH stamps from Hero Arts. Thanks for visiting.
