Tutorial : Prismacolor Pencils / Odorless Mineral Spirits


Hello friends.  Today has been a fabulous day.  A friend of mine from Jacksonville, Karen Berry, was in Houston visiting family and I got to spend a couple of hours with her catching up.  What a blessing it was.  Karen is one of my dearest friends.  She is one of the sweetest and most joyful people I have ever met.  She truly shines bright like the sun and is treasured by so many.  And her happiness and joy is infectious.  I am so thankful for the little bit of time that I got to spend with her.   My heart was filled with so much joy!

and now on to today's project .... I've been going through project photos looking for projects I haven't posted on my blog or in galleries and trying to catch up.

I found this older card that I created back when I was a TAC demo.  It's designed using Prismacolor Pencils and Odorless Mineral Spirits. I also found tutorial photo's.  I know most people are using Copic Markers these days .... but just in case there are some new stampers / card makers  ... I wanted to share this option.

The image is by Red Rubber Designs "Flowers and Holly"

If you are not familiar with basic supplies used to do this then check out THIS post with details and photo's as well as basic tips.   Today's tutorial just shows the colors added and blended for this image.  If you are new to using them you will definitely need to check out the other tutorial.   And I have another tutorial HERE.

For this particular image I used :
942 Yellow Ochre
1032 Pumpkin Orange
945 Sienna Brown
912 Apple Green
911 Olive Green




In the photo above I added Yellow Ochre to the petals and Sienna Brown in the middle.





In the photo above I added the Pumpkin Orange.  I usually apply an light and dark color or just one color lighter in some area's and darker in other, then use the Odorless Mineral Spirits and a blending stump to blend.





The photo above shows the colors blended on the flower and then the addition of the Apple Green on the leaves.





In this photo I added the Olive Green. and the final photo on the card shows them blended.

Hope you find it helpful!
