No Line Coloring with Prismacolor Pencils


Happy Monday my lovely friends.  <3  Today I am sharing a CAS card for the current Power Poppy challenge, Frame It Up!  My mother had quite the stash of PSX floral stamps from back in the day, so I raided that drawer and found this beauty.  I decided to try no line watercolor, only with Prismacolor pencils instead.  I really like the effect!


I inked the greenery with Pistachio Distress Ink and the blossom with Abandoned Coral DI, then went about coloring until I was pleased.  I never thought I would get into coloring, but I admit that once I begin building layers and the depth begins to form with the colors I get very caught up into it.  The curls in the petals were a challenge, but I was pleased that I kept some highlights after all.  I had intended on keeping the background stark white as I am trying to do CAS cards, but I couldn't help myself and dipped the colored panel into Antique Linen DI, then did some over stamping in Frayed Burlap.  I am what I am ok!  :)  I used an I/O sentiment and button/twine to finish it off, framing with a Tim Holtz postage die by Sizzix.  I had to sponge it a little to go with the grunge effect I had created.  I hope you like it!

Your mom will love that you've used a beloved PSX image - in the day, that was my favorite brand, and I miss them as a company. If ever you are going to discard your PSX stamps, please keep me in mind! The prisma color penciling you have accomplished IS DROP DEAD GORGEOUS, Autumn! LOVING everything about your fabulously beautiful masterpiece! hugs, de

Your colouring is superb Autumn, the low and highlights are incredible as are the variations in colours, I have to admit I would have added text too. Brilliant xxx

Marty Fishman said...

In addition to everything else you do, you're an amazing colorist! Your flower is perfection, Autumn, and I couldn't imagine it on any other background - it's so you, even though it's CAS! Great job pulling that off! Beautiful, beautiful card :-) Hugs!

Darlene said...

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Autumn! Love this stamp and your coloring is AMAZING! What a beautiful design ... well done! Thanks for inspiration!

Anne Temple said...

Wow, this looks amazing!!!

CherylQuilts said...

WOW! Autumn, your talent knows no end, and your no-line coloring is exquisite! I would not have known it was your coloring had I not read it. It looks like a beautiful piece of DP. It's amazing, and I'm with Donna...if you ever want to part with any PSX stamps, keep me in mind. It's one of the very few companies that I am so sorry no longer makes their stamps. Beautifully finished with the lovely postage stamp die. I love it! Hugs, sweet friend!

Debbie Mageed said...

Oh, Autumn, this card is stunning! I love every single detail!! I have to pin this to see if I can do something even remotely close to it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Helen Wallace said...

A gorgeous card, beautifully photographed on the hessian. Love the postage stamp mat and you colouring is superb. Like it? - I love it!

Astrid Maclean said...

LOVE the way you have done your no line colouring Autumn, there is such gorgeous depth to it and I really like the way you mounted it on the postage die, it really suits it somehow, - the little bit of "grunge" you added worked brilliantly, CAS with just a little twist to it. Now you really have me wondering what PSX stamps are, - this one is so gorgeous!! Lucky to have a mum who has a drawer like that!

Joi at RR said...

Oh sooooooooooooooo BEAUTIFUL. Haven't had prismacolors out for a long time but now... you have once again... inspired!!! This looks like you do it every day Autumn...the colors are PERFECTION. Love the script. It's just a DELIGHTFUL creation.

Had you on my heart this week sweet girl and here's a little message to pass on :) Xj.

My love and kindness shall not depart from you (or yours) nor shall my covenant of peace and completeness. Is 54:10.

Hi Autumn how special to use one of your mothers PSX stamps for this Mother's Day card. I have some rather nice PSX ones being neglected from 1990s when first into Stamping need to join you in this. Love this image thought at first you'd used a new PB one rather like it.. have prismas and I too find them addictive to use.
Love this creation, well done in your high skill level.
Thanks for sharing your inspiration!
