Review: Comparing Colored Pencils

Last week, I published a card video on creating a scene with different, non-coordinating stamp sets on our Youtube channel and in that video, I shared about how I used my colored pencils. And in today’s video, I will be sharing a review comparing the 3 brands of colored pencils that I have and love using.

I hope that this video can help you understand these colored pencils better and perhaps help you decide which colored pencils you would want to invest in. I only have Prismacolor Premier, Faber-Castell Polychromos and the Caran d’Ache Luminance which I reviewed in this video. This is a pretty comprehensive video so grab a snack, a coffee (or your favorite beverage), kick back and relax!

I hope you enjoyed my personal sharing on these colored pencils and find this video helpful to you somehow 🙂 If you enjoyed our video, please click on the LIKE button, SUBSCRIBE and hit that NOTIFICATION bell so that you will be notified the next time we have a new video.

Narwhal HELLO…

Happy Monday Evelin T Designs friends. Annette Allen here with you on this fine Monday and I am sharing a card created using the newly released UNDER THE SEA: NARWHAL stamp set. Don’t you just love the new release?

I colored these adorable images with Copic Sketch markers. For the background I used a background created using Ranger alcohol inks and water. With a couple of fun die cuts I am ready to put my card together.

Piecing the card together is sometimes the fun part. I adhered the colorful background on my card base but first added some pretty designer paper on the sides. I wanted the pink to stand out just a bit more so this was my solution. Next I added these cute die cuts and finishing up with my colored images from the UNDER THE SEA: NARWHAL stamp set. I used foam adhesives to give it some dimension.

You can get your crafty hands on new release HERE. Make sure to check out all the inspiration from the sneak peeks we did at the beginning of the month.

Have a wonderful day.

Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to Evelin T Designs

Evelin Tee

Hi and Welcome to the first post here on Evelin T Designs! I’m Evelin Tee, designer and owner of Evelin T Designs and I am so glad you are here.   I grew up in sunny Malaysia and moved to Southern California with my husband in 2012. We have a darling boy and are expecting another baby boy this May 18th. Drawing and creating has always been close to my heart and it has truly been a blessing that I was given the opportunity to design stamp sets for a few amazing companies since 2014.

With the encouragement and support from my husband and a dear friend whom I also call a mentor, I finally made the decision to launch my designs through my own company.  Our mission is to “bring Joy through stamping”. Personally, stamping has brought me much joy since I discovered card making back in 2008 during my time in the corporate world. Through card making, I have ‘met’ and developed some amazing friendships with crafters around the world which in turn, opened up opportunities for me to design stamp sets and now, designing for my own company.

And as for our logo, it is handwritten by me and it’s a way of reflecting how I would like to be as personal as I can with my products to all of you, throughout the whole process of it all. To me, this is a very personal and intimate journey and I am so glad I get to share it with all of you.
