PENTEL OIL PASTEL CRAYONS

USING BABY OIL

Here’s another sneak peek at the new MFP releases coming out Tuesday.  This fall set called Autumn Glory is such a beautiful set for masculine cards and thank you cards.  The main image is from that set.  The sentiment is from the stash at Edith’s house. Smile She and I had such great fun coloring these images and creating a couple of cards.  We used the Pentel Pastel Oil crayons that I found at Good Will for ninety-nine cents.  I see online though, that these would be a very inexpensive way to get beautiful shading.  A box of 16 in only $2.99.  You could probably find these at any hobby store. 

The technique:  You simply outline your image with a darker color, rough color the large spots with a lighter color of the same family.  Take a Q-tip, pull off some of the cotton so you have more control of where the color is going.  Dip the end in baby oil and in a small circular motion begin blending the colors together.  It leaves you with a gorgeous finish, don’t you think?

I even rescued the brown cardstock from her garbage pile, it was the back of a store bought card, then I ran it through the Cuttlebug with a Sizzex embossing folder.

Edith didn’t have any black brads and I used her  black Copic marker to help with that little issue. 

So this really was a cobbled together card.  The entire thing is made from scraps.  Thumbs up
