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 hit the LIKE button, SUBSCRIBE and smash that NOTIFICATION bell so that you will be notified the next time we have a new video.

Till next time, keep crafting and smile always!

I think you are PAWsome – Sneaky Kitties and Colored Pencils

Hello! Heather Hoffman here this morning with a card using the adorable Sneaky Kitties stamp set – this is a super fun image to sit and color, and while I had done it before with Copic markers, I decided to try it with colored pencils for today’s card!

I hadn’t used my Polychromos colored pencils in quite a while, and thought it would be a great opportunity to break them out and do a bit of coloring. So relaxing and fun to play with coloring sometimes! I stamped the images in a deep brown ink on some rustic cardstock before coloring.

I also love tucking parts of larger images behind windows – I love how it changes the entire feel of the image. And those little sneaky kitties are super cute!

I combined a die from Avery Elle and from Mama Elephant to create the layers in two shades of green, then mounted on a cardbase created from that same rustic cardstock the images are stamped on, and added the sentiment at the top of the window – super happy that it fit in there just right!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!!!
