I have a couple of cards to share with you that were created with my "Colorful Blessings" card fronts. "Colorful Blessings" card fronts are pre-printed black and white images and sentiments on heavy card stock that you color in yourself. The images are printed on heavy card stock. After coloring, you just adhere them to a card front. They are super fun and easy to use.
The card fronts come in a little box. I got mine from Amazon.
Here's a sample of what the cards look like before they're colored.
Many of the designs are very intricate. I usually color with Copic Markers but found I needed something with a finer tip to get inside these intricate designs. I purchased some new gel pens from Hobby Lobby and found they worked best. I colored in the background with gel highlighters.
I matted my card fronts on white and colored mats before adhering them to a card base.
Now I want to show you what gel pens I used. These are Kaiser Gel Pens from Hobby Lobby. They cost $20.00 for the set, but I bought them on sale at 50% off (you can also use a coupon on them if they are not on sale). I can not say enough about these gel pens. They are hands down the best gel pens I ever used in my life. So many other brands I've tried clogged a few minutes after using them. These have done that. And they go on so smooth....just like butter! They are a dream to color with.
You get 24 pens in a set, 12 are pastel and 12 are glitter. The colors are so pretty!
Just like the gel pens, these highlighters go on smooth like butter! They are a dream to color with and there is no mess or crinkled pages like there is with water colors.
