Rainbow Colouring with Pencils | Valentine Card


Todays card came about because I really wanted to try out the Lyra Rembrandt Colored Pencils. I picked them up on a recent trip to Costco for $15. I also googled them to get some reviews and one person said they are up there with Faber-Castell, so I threw them in my cart.

I stamped out this geometric heart from the MFT Stamps All Heart Set in Archival Jet Black, randomly. Then I set about colouring them.

I will admit these are great coloured pencils, especially for the price point. I am hoping to get a lot more use out of them. They blended together beautifully and are quite soft.

To finish it off I covered the hearts with some Wink of Stella and trimmed it down to 5 1/2"x3 3/4" and placed it on a red card base. A small strip of gold glitter paper runs along the edge.

The sentiment sits on a white banner stamped in black and popped up with foam tape. I Also threw on a few clear sequins and Bobs your uncle.

I find it very therapeutic to colour don't you? Let me know what your favourite colouring pencils are down in the comments!

{Oh, and before I go; I need to address the elephant in the room, so to speak. Up here in the Great White North (Canada) we spell 'Colour' with a 'U' and Americans do not.  So, yes I do know how to spell. Sometimes a product will spell it one way and I will always try to spell it the way they have it on the packaging. So if that word seems somewhat inconsistent on my blog that is why. }
