Simple Valentine’s card using 3 coloring pencils.

Simple Valentine’s card using 3 coloring pencils.

Hi everyone! 

This is Luisana and I am back this week to show you an awesome and simple card I made using Brutus Monroe’s stencil of the month.  

As you may already know, I am a colorist, it’s what I enjoy and love to do, so I try to incorporate it into any cards I make as much as I can. However, I am not the simplest colorist. I tend to be over the top with my techniques and mediums I use. In fact, “less is more” is my new motto this year and I am trying (without success most of the time) to color using less products. 

Enter this card! Check out the design of this stencil! How cute and romantic is it! Buuuuut... I am so proud of myself because... wait for it... I only used 3... THREE coloring pencils for this whole card. Yup! this needed to be documented.


Back to the card. As per my usual, i made my stencil sticky using tombow mono glue and I placed it on top of my card stock. Using my lightest color I traced over every single heart, making sure I had a crisp image on the paper.


By the time I was done with this step it was time to take my son to basketball practice, so naturally I took my pencils and cardstock to practice with us and colored there. 

I wanted an ombré effect for this card so i colored the heart in 3 sections, making sure to blend the colors together so they’d flow seamlessly. 

I was done with my coloring when we got home and all I needed to do was place this sentiment from the Love Bug set onto a piece of white cardstock, and for some added dimension I put foam glue dots on the back of it to stick it to the card. I stamped my sentiment in red ink, because after all, this is a Valentine’s card. 

And my card is done.  So quick and easy

Thank you for stopping by and reading till the end. 

I will see you all next week.
