My goal is to turn my disabilities around to abilities using art therapy as a means of stroke rehabilitation on my hands & arms. I want to also use cards to spread kindness, show different fun card techniques, bring awareness to issues that are important to me, and to just spread joy in general!

Colored Pencil on Natural Cardstock - Featuring Unity Stamp Co KOM

I love the technique of coloring on kraft card stock.  I think it is beautiful!  I haven't done it a lot so I wanted to try that technique on various colors of the natural card stock - kraft, dark kraft, gray, soft gray, and a green/kraft.  These papers were in a Neenah card pack and were the start of where I wanted to go with these cards.  I also had the January Unity Stamp Co. card kit that had some awesome images on it and thought they would be absolutely perfect for this technique.

I stamped the stamps in either white pigment ink or memento tuxedo black ink using the MISTI tool.  I then used the Prisma colored pencils and colored them in.  I didn't use gamsol this time as I felt they blended really well and I didn't need it on this card stock.  After all the images were colored in I decided to just use some simple decorations with these cards.  I didn't want to add any patterned paper, glitter paper, dimension, embossing or anything like that.  I just wanted them to be plain and simple this time.  Maybe that was because I was having a bad week and I didn't feel like doing it - or maybe I just liked the simplicity on this one!!!  I have no idea which one!!!!

I added ribbon, nuvo drops, rhinestones and line stickers that I had left over from the Love from Lizi kits.  Once I did that, these cards were complete!  See, simple!
