My Favorite Things-Being Cute

Today's post features a little card I made using My Favorite Things-Being Cute Is What I Do set.  I really changed things up-NO COPIC markers.
I decided to pull out my good ole' colored pencils and Gamsol.  I have not tried this in years!  I was really surprised at how well I was able to shade using this technique. 

If this is something you would like to try you'll need the following:

high quality colored pencils (i use the Prisma brand)
Gamsol (I purchased some from Inky Antics long ago in a special bottle.  You can also purchase it from Gina K Design in a pump and The Stamping Bella)
paper blending stumps (the Taiwan brand is better than the China brand)
high quality paper (#80  is best)
sanding tool or nail file ( to sand your stumps to change color and keep even)
ink (waterproof- I use Momento ink)


Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink-Stamper's Select (White)
D.P:  Basic Grey -Curio
Stamps:  My Favorite Things-Being Cute Is What I Do
Ink:  Mometo (Tuxedo Black)
Color Medium:  Prisma Colored Pencils
Punch: Fiskars (Scalloped Sentiments)
Other:  button and hemp cording
