Grateful Leaf Frame! | By Desiree Kuemmerle

Hello Everyone and Welcome Back!

For today’s project I will be using the Grateful Frame Stamp Set! I thought this was perfect for no line coloring… so grab your favorite coloring medium, mine will be colored pencils, and let’s get started

For no line coloring you want to make sure you stamp your images with a very light ink. Once my image was stamps, I chose my colors I will be using by swatching them out on a piece of card stock, the same I am using for our project.

Now the fun begins, we get to color our image. When using colored pencils, I like to start with a light layer of my lightest color and then come in with my mid tone and then add my dark layer to add my shadows. Over all of those layers I add one final layer of the lightest color to blend them all together.

For the frame I used two dark colors so my sentiment would stand out, but instead of stamping the image in black ink I used a charcoal grey to keep it subtle.

I trimmed my panel down to approximately 5 ½ inches x 5 ½ inches and used a black card stock to mat my image and placed it on to a 6 inch x 5 ½ inch side folding card base.

Added some Vintage Drops by NuVo in Chocolate Chip around my image for an embellishment.

As always, I hope you enjoyed today’s project… and if you want to see more details just click on the video below and see how these projects come together step by step!
